“TradeCard provides a system of record for the supply chain, delivering visibility and process automation that benefit Guess and our trading partners,” said Mike Relich, CIO of GUESS, Inc. “All processes from purchase order through settlement occur in one place. This eliminates errors, confusion and paper intensive processes. Some of our European suppliers were asking us to move onto TradeCard to make their lives easier.”
Previously, GUESS Europe was relying on manual processes and letters of credit to facilitate transactions. The deployment of TradeCard in Europe will eliminate the need for letters of credit and provide an automated environment for communicating with suppliers and trading partners on orders and settlements. GUESS?, Inc. benefits from clear visibility into the status of orders. Suppliers have visibility to know when and how they will be paid.
“Retailers and brands today are using the TradeCard Platform to drive smart business growth,” said Frank Bakker, Vice President, Europe at TradeCard. “Europe is one of Guess’s fastest growing segments. TradeCard helps them scale their business without adding resources and without putting a strain on suppliers.”
