Leading UK Industry Organization to Promote ReposiTrak as the Industry Standard Compliance Platform
SALT LAKE CITY, May 9, 2019 – ReposiTrak, Inc., the world’s only sourcing, compliance management and advanced commerce platform for retailing, is partnering with the Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) in the United Kingdom through SerTech Exchange to promote the platform in the UK. The arrangement validates ReposiTrak as the preferred supplier compliance management platform for the UK food wholesale and distribution sector, and includes the development of an industry standard for compliance and food safety similar to the ReposiTrak network in the US that is currently more than 80,000 supply chain connections.
FWD is a membership-based organization representing firms providing food and associated products to more than 400,000 retail and catering businesses in the UK. As a Supplier Partner of FWD, the association supports ReposiTrak as a supplier compliance management solution for its members.
“We’ve worked closely with SerTech Exchange and ReposiTrak’s parent company Park City Group to introduce a higher level of supplier management and food safety to the UK,” said James Bielby, CEO of FWD. “ReposiTrak’s solution is incredibly attractive for our members and their suppliers. I am encouraged with the early reaction we’ve seen from members with whom we’ve shared ReposiTrak.”
ReposiTrak is a cloud-based compliance management platform representing the largest network of supply chain partners sharing compliance and food safety documents and data, utilized by more than 60% of leading retailers and wholesalers in the US, and their suppliers in more than 50 countries.
“As we consulted with leading industry representatives in the UK, we recognized that the wholesale industry has a very fragmented service provision when it comes to supplier compliance management and the current solutions have limited adoption levels,” said Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of Park City Group and ReposiTrak. “We are shaping our approach to the UK market to address these hurdles and to ensure that adopting ReposiTrak provides value for all supply chain participants, as we work to make ReposiTrak the industry standard for the UK and Europe like it is here in North America.”
SerTech Exchange connects digital and e-commerce businesses directly with C-suite executives within the hospitality and retail industries, giving business leaders first-person insight to technology-enabled innovation that can enhance customer experiences and improve business performance and value.
“Our partnership with Park City Group in bringing ReposiTrak to the UK will generate tremendous value to all participants,” said Andrew Main, CEO of SerTech Exchange. “It has the potential to become the unifying supplier compliance management platform for the wholesale industry worldwide. We have been greatly encouraged by the reaction to this industry-leading technology platform from all the leaders with whom we’ve consulted.”
