April 28, 2017 | Salt Lake City, Utah – Park City Group’s ReposiTrak, Inc., the leading provider of Compliance Management and Track & Trace solutions for food, pharma and dietary supplement safety, announces Robert Maldonado, Director of Quality Assurance & Food Safety at Northgate Gonzalez Markets, will join Shawn Stevens, food industry consultant, lawyer and co-founder of Food Industry Counsel, LLC, to speak at this year’s Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) Conference on May 1st in San Diego. Their breakout session, titled “Contracting with a New Trading Partner? Learn Nine Ways to Reduce Your Risk BEFORE the First Shipment While Expediting the Sourcing Process,” will share best practices and first-hand experiences. Stevens will review a recommended checklist of documents to require, actions to take and things to consider when contracting with new vendors. Maldonado will then walk through the new vendor sourcing process at Northgate Gonzalez Markets and share how they use ReposiTrak to increase speed in vetting new vendors while expanding their requirements to reduce risk.
The TPA Supply Chain Conference brings together all sides of the value chain to foster stronger relationships, streamline logistics, effectively manage activities, explore new process options and increase efficiency – all leading to innovation and reduction in costs. The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) joined together as the Trading Partner Alliance (TPA), are pleased to host the annual Supply Chain Conference. Now in its eighth year, over 500 retailers, manufacturers, and technology solution providers will convene for a joint conference filled with idea-stimulating educational sessions, interactive exhibits with the latest technology and relationship-building networking opportunities.
“We are delighted that Robert is able to join Shawn at the podium to discuss how Northgate Gonzalez Markets has put their learnings in contracting with new vendors into practice with ReposiTrak,” said Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of Park City Group. “From our experience, it’s vitally important that new vendors be fully vetted at the contract stage of a new relationship and before a new purchase order is ever cut.”
