GMDC Members Leverage ReposiTrak MarketPlace Technology to Drive Engagement at GMDC’s 2018 General Merchandise Marketing Conference and Beyond
Salt Lake City | June 29, 2018 – Park City Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCYG) subsidiary ReposiTrak, Inc., the industry leader in compliance, food safety and risk management for the retail supply chain, launched the GMDC MarketPlace powered by ReposiTrak at Global Market Development Center’s (GMDC) General Merchandise Marketing Conference in Orlando, Florida this past week. The annual event was attended by over 340 companies representing retailers, suppliers, and service/solution organizations that serve the grocery, mass, drug, convenience and value channels of trade.
GMDC is partnering with ReposiTrak to utilize MarketPlace as a supplier discovery and B2B ecommerce platform for its members. At the conference, GMDC MarketPlace was used by attendees to facilitate and support meetings connecting hundreds of buyers and sellers throughout the five-day event generating significant interest in adoption of the platform.
“GMDC MarketPlace leverages ReposiTrak technology to help buyers and sellers connect, expedite their relationship and get product and promotions to the consumer as fast and effectively as possible,” says Patrick Spear, President and CEO of GMDC. “MarketPlace drove engagement between buyers and sellers at our annual conference and it will provide the infrastructure for members to identify growth opportunities year-round.”
Spear adds, “The GMDC MarketPlace is a great opportunity for suppliers who are looking to scale and grow in the channels and categories we cover. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for retailers that want to discover the new products most likely to succeed in the store. Given where market trends are today, we feel confident that MarketPlace will allow GMDC and ReposiTrak to create value for both retailers and suppliers across the industry.”
“MarketPlace is the unrivaled growth platform for suppliers looking to reach wholesale and retail buyers, and for retailers looking for seasonal, event-themed or local items. Right out of the gate, suppliers are reporting year over year sales increases from participating in MarketPlace,” says Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of ReposiTrak. “The interest in GMDC MarketPlace exceeded our expectations and helped create a buzz about our platform capabilities as we engaged more than 200 potential users and they saw the application in action.”
