RangeMe, an independent online supplier platform in Australia that enables FMCG suppliers to pitch their product range to Australian retailers, has confirmed its entry into GS1 Australia’s Alliance Partner Program.
GS1 Australia is a not for profit organisation that administers GS1 standards and digital solutions for supply chains in Australia.
RangeMe is targeted at SMEs who use the platform to showcase their products to the right category buyers within the grocery, pharmacy, convenience, and impulse, and health food channels.
Maria Palazzolo, CEO at GS1 Australia said, “The entry of RangeMe into the GS1 Australia Alliance Partner Program is a significant announcement. We welcome RangeMe to the Alliance Partner Community to help SME product suppliers, including GS1 members, get their products ranged effectively with Australian retailers using GS1 standards.”
Nicky Jackson, CEO of RangeMe said, the company was excited about the partnership with GS1 Australia.
“Both organisations are committed to equipping SME product suppliers with tools to efficiently communicate with Australian retailers, in addition to simplifying the process for retail buyers through standardisation,” Jackson said.
RANGEme will ensure subscribed suppliers have a verified GS1 barcode and refer suppliers to GS1 Australia’s SmartMedia technology, an industry solution for managing and sharing images and product related assets with trading partners.
“We are looking forward to our partnership with RANGEme and we are delighted our new alliance partner will be referring their customers to GS1 Australia’s SmartMedia,” said Palazzolo.
GS1 Australia’s Alliance Partner Program provides small and large businesses with a diverse range of benefits including supply chain enabling tools, priority notification of new technologies and innovation initiatives to improve supply chain efficiency, comprehensive best practice case studies and professional advice in making the GS1 implementation smoother and easier.
