We are excited to announce that Track Record Global (TRG) has been shortlisted by the Tech.AWARDS for its ground-breaking Trackvision software for Product Technical File (PTF). This software service does exactly what it says on the tin – enabling retailers and their suppliers to work together in an efficient and fully collaborative manner to capture regulatory and corporate compliance product data; making it readily available to concerned parties.
TRG’s industry leading approach ensures that suppliers in over 50 countries know what evidence documents must be made available and by when, so that their products can be traded legally. Once uploaded, the evidence documents can be immediately assessed by TRG and made available for a rapid final validation by those buying the goods.
Using this software, TRG’s clients have saved millions of pounds. They have redeployed highly skilled technical staff, who were formerly administering test certificates, but who can now apply their significant technical expertise to product design and improvement.
Suppliers who were formerly ignorant of the test certificates to provide, now have clear instructions on exactly what’s required; when requirements change and when the test certificates are about to expire. TRG consistently supports all suppliers by both online and off-line methods.
The outcome is that no products are shipped prior to compliance being fully demonstrated; all compliance evidence is available for up to 10 years after products have been removed from sale; no supplier is left not understanding exactly what evidence they need to deliver; and the regulatory authorities can have immediate access to evidence of compliance when required.
What’s coming next? The world never stands still and TRG has no intention of resting on its laurels. During Q1, 2019 TRG will release Trackvision’s new supply chain visualisation system which will map key supply chain characteristics (such as ‘legality’ or ‘no contribution to deforestation’) for timber, cotton and leather.
Also in 2019 TRG will launch its ‘Monitored Pre-Shipment Inspection Service (MPSI)’ which promises to slash the cost of PSIs by over 50% and completely disrupt the old and tired approach. Watch this space!
