Laval, Canada – InterTrade Systems Inc., an industry leader in supply chain collaboration specializing in both EDI B2B Network (VAN) and catalogue solutions, announced today that German retail chain Deichmann Group has selected InterTrade‘s product catalogue solution for its two US-based footwear retailers, Rack Room Shoes (www.rackroom.com) and Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse (www.offbroadwayshoes.com).
InterTrade’s catalogue solution will allow Rack Room and Off Broadway to synchronize and integrate critical product information from their suppliers in a timely manner. As such, suppliers will be invited to publish GTIN/UPC codes, descriptions, dimensions and product images into InterTrade’s catalogue solution. Expected benefits for multi-channel retailers are shortened go-to-market cycles, streamlined merchandise efforts and faster channeling of rich product descriptions to online storefronts.
An executive of the Deichmann Group stated, ‘’By partnering with InterTrade Systems, we can expand our usage of standardized product data, as well as begin to take advantage of the availability of our vendors' product imaging. Having a more complete set of this information enables improvements to every step of the product’s journey -- from placing and receiving a product order, to its sale and delivery to our valued customers.’’
“We are extremely happy to welcome Deichmann Group and their vendors to InterTrade’s Catalogue solution”, said Andreanne Simon, InterTrade’s General Manager. “We look forward to working closely with the teams from Rack Room Shoes and Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse as well as their vendors, to implement this initiative and provide tangible business benefits for their supply chain operations.”
