Key industry takeaways
TradeBeyond is not another finished goods on-line marketplace; but rather, it is the exclusive network in which retailers, brands, validated suppliers and factories, can connect, source, extend innovation and bring private label products to market faster. TradeBeyond allows members to work “virtually”, in real-time, side-by-side, seamlessly and will ultimately revolutionize how the retail industry manages product development and product sourcing for own brands.
“Retailers flourish when they can bring unique products to market ahead of the competition at a price point today’s consumers are demanding; however, few have mastered the ability to execute on this vision because the amount of redundant activity, lost time, lost data and failed communications impedes the opportunity for success”, said Michael Hung, Chief Innovation Officer at TradeBeyond.
TradeBeyond is the ultimate retail sourcing network where buyers request and suppliers introduce single products or entire catalogs in digital showrooms that match mood boards, ranges and themes in an instant. Months and weeks become days and hours as all parties move through the private label product development process, reducing the need for multiple buying trips, expensive sample management reviews and factory compliance document validation.
“TradeBeyond has the ability to increase the speed and accuracy of product development, sourcing and supplier validation whilst improving the collaboration amongst product teams and their vendors”, said Steve Feniger, CEO, 55 Brand Management Consultants.
