TradeCard Inc, the leading provider of extended supply chain solutions, announced that Levi Strauss & Co. has signed with TradeCard to optimize its global sourcing operations. TradeCard will help Levi's automate processes from procurement through payment.

The TradeCard Platform will eliminate manual processes that require physical handling and viewing of paper documents received from vendors and trading partners for purchase orders, invoices and compliance checking. The announcement was made at the RetailConnections Business Executive Summit being held February 6-8 in Boca Raton, Florida.

Levi's plans to bring 225 vendors from Europe, Asia and the Americas onto the TradeCard Platform. TradeCard will interface with existing ERP systems at Levi's to consolidate payments and streamline customs compliance by sending data electronically to customs brokers.

"TradeCard will complement the existing sourcing landscape at Levi's to provide better control over the movement of product and money outside the four walls of the organization and into the extended supply chain," said Kurt Cavano, CEO of TradeCard, Inc.

"Our unique combination of software delivered as a service and local support in 45 countries enables rapid deployment with minimal risk or required resources. It will allow Levi's to truly extend visibility into manufacturing processes and all partners involved."

TradeCard will automate processes to inject speed and visibility into Levi's supply chain and customs compliance processes. TradeCard's on-demand platform will connect Levi's back-end with key partners in the supply chain, including vendors, buyers, customs agents and financial institutions, and complement the company's SAP Apparel and Footwear Solution (AFS) investment. TradeCard will be live in early 2008.
