CBX Softwarea leading provider of Product Lifecycle Management (retail PLM), global sourcing software and supply chain software for the retail industry, announced today the launch of their extended mobile suite of new and enhanced retail sourcing, quality and supply chain applications.
The retail industry in today’s world is on the move and they’re increasingly using mobile application platforms to get there. Whether they use mobile phones, tablets, or other mobile devices they need real-time supply chain information at their fingertips.
The CBX mobile strategy involves the entire end-to-end retail supply chain from the global supplier network to quality service provider partners, all the way through product management – comparative shopping and product development inspiration.
“Today’s retailers need to move at the speed of light and it’s imperative to constantly evolve technology to meet those needs,” says Michael Hung, CEO, CBX Software. “Enhancing and adding to our existing mobile suite will give our current and future customers the ability to connect all mobile field unit data to our existing CBX Cloud platform featuring, extended Retail Product Lifecycle Management (Retail PLM), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Total Quality Management (TQM) solutions, including our newest Extended Quality and Sourcing Solution (EQSS) platform.”
CBX mobile apps offer common interface gateways for factory audits and results, quality checked inspections and field inspiration captures for potential product ideas, to interface with the CBX Cloud platform. The mobile suite also allows suppliers and internal retail sourcing teams to publish mobile data to the CBX showroom catalogs which are easily accessed by retail buying teams.
No matter what your business is, a mobile app can help the flow of data move faster and in the case of global retailers, be able to move data from what’s happening in the field, to the head office for real-time business decisions. At a glance buyers, merchandisers, sourcing, quality and supplier compliance teams will be able to quickly see issues in the product lifecycle workflow as soon as they are captured in the field.
