Panjiva to help search WRAP compliant companies

Earlier today, Panjiva, the leading source of objective information on global manufacturers, announced a new relationship with Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production, a pioneer in the certification of socially responsible facilities.

Information about which manufacturers have the WRAP certification will be integrated into Panjiva Search, the most comprehensive search engine for global trade – making it easier for socially responsible companies to find socially responsible manufacturers.

According to Steve Jesseph, WRAP President, “Panjiva is building a one-stop-shop for information about manufacturers around the world. We are excited to work with Panjiva to make it easier for socially responsible buyers to find socially responsible suppliers.”

Panjiva Search provides easy access to profiles of more than one million companies engaged in global trade. Profiles of companies that are WRAP certified will identify these companies as “Certified” and will provide a mechanism for visitors to request certification details. When using Panjiva Search, Panjiva subscribers will be able to focus their searches specifically on companies that are WRAP certified.

According to Case Dorkey, Director of Business Development at Panjiva, “WRAP has a very important role to play in promoting accountability in global manufacturing. We are excited for the opportunity to make WRAP's information broadly available.”

The relationship between Panjiva and WRAP marks another milestone in WRAP's continuing efforts to advance adoption of the WRAP standard for socially responsible manufacturing – and provides a hint of what's to come for Panjiva, a company that has set out to democratize the availability of information for those participating in global trade.

About Panjiva:
Panjiva is an online resource for sourcing executives to gain credible and valuable knowledge about suppliers and manufacturers around the world. By providing the most comprehensive data in an easy to use format, Panjiva informs the decisions that facilitate doing business globally.

Supply chain and global production executives responsible for finding the right factories, negotiating costs and avoiding costly supply chain disruptions have been “flying blind.” Panjiva is the first and only online information source designed to provide complete transparency into overseas suppliers.

Leveraging a variety of public and proprietary data sources, Panjiva is bringing new levels of visibility to the management of global supply chains. Panjiva was founded by CEO Josh Green and CTO James Psota. Panjiva received an equity investment from Battery Ventures and a contingent of angel investors.
