San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2011
iCiX (http://www.icix.com), the trusted web-based network for information exchange between companies and their global suppliers, has introduced new versions of the iCiX Compliance Management and Validated Certification Management applications. These industry-leading applications are designed to help companies efficiently manage risk, compliance, and standards for their supplier networks.
iCiX Compliance Management enables companies to determine quickly and accurately which suppliers have submitted documentation regarding regulations, specifications, and other required information. Once the company defines its requirements for compliance, iCiX proactively monitors changes and communicates updates to the supplier network, saving time and man-hours otherwise needed for manual monitoring.
Using iCiX Compliance Management, companies can track compliance with a clear audit trail throughout the global supply chain. In addition, suppliers have ready access to information that lets them know daily whether they are currently in compliance with their customer’s requirements.
iCiX Validated Certification Management helps companies streamline the process of requesting audit reports and validated certificates from suppliers. iCiX provides a central repository for companies to track these critical pieces of information with full audit trail functionality for historical records. iCiX alerts companies of any missing supplier certifications and email alerts are sent to suppliers when certifications are nearing expiration.
To support validated sources for authenticated certifications, companies can leverage iCiX’s extensive network of official industry certification bodies, including industry standard workflows to support GFSI.
"Managing compliance requirements can be a daunting and expensive task. The iCiX Compliance and Certification applications enable our sponsor companies to proactively monitor and manage their most critical certification requirements for all of their global suppliers," said Michael BeDell, senior vice president of sales for iCiX. “iCiX is dedicated to helping companies stay seamlessly connected to their entire supply chain, and stay on top of constantly changing standards and requirements.”
Special promotional pricing is available for the iCiX Compliance/Certification application bundle, with 25% off through May 20, 2011.
