Procurant brings new services to retail grocery procurement platform
Procurant, a cloud-based software company transforming the global food supply chain, released Procurant Connect, a new module within the Procurant One platform. The new module consolidates critical third-party information for retail buyers and their trading partners and provides quick access to this information during the procurement process. Procurant Connect builds on Procurant One’s open network architecture, providing a hub for produce supply chain data that can be easily customized and personalized.
“Procurement of perishable goods is a high velocity, information-hungry process. Buyers and sellers need to be able to quickly find relevant data and put it to use in context, and that is exactly what our new Connect module offers. We see this as just the beginning, as we have plans to bring even more data and services to our customers this year,” said Kevin Brooks, CMO of Procurant.
Procurant Connect integrates external data sources into Procurant One, a leading procurement platform for retail grocers and their perishable goods suppliers. Users can access Procurant Connect to quickly get information about:
- Commodity pricing
- Transportation lane rates
- Recall notices
- Currency conversion rates
“I was excited to see the addition of Procurant Connect. It will be helpful to have access to industry data from the Procurant One dashboard — especially the commodity pricing and the ability to filter that data. I’m glad that my buyer traded up to Procurant. It is much more user-friendly than the old system, and it’s even better with Procurant Connect,” said Jack Guan, business development for Guan’s Mushrooms.
“Having recall information, from Procurant Connect, right in my Procurant One dashboard will be very helpful. Now, I have to search for recall information in news articles and data from subscriptions. Procurant Connect is a great addition to Procurant One, which has already improved my daily routines since our buyer traded up to Procurant,” said Noemi Aguilar, account manager for Duda Farms Fresh Foods.
Procurant Connect is available at no cost to any retailer requesting access. Suppliers on the Procurant One platform have access to Procurant Connect as part of their annual subscription.
