Ariat, a manufacturer of innovative performance equestrian footwear and apparel, has selected QIMA’s digital platform, QIMAone, to digitise its supply chain furthering the brand’s commitment to establishing a collaborative, proactive, and cost-effective approach to supplier quality management. QIMA provides quality control and supplier compliance solutions.

Ariat practices a fully transparent and proactive approach to managing supplier quality and QIMA has been an integral partner in making these goals a reality for the past six years, partnering with Ariat through a volatile supply chain landscape that has been impacted by ongoing trade tensions and disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. By deploying QIMAone, a smart digital platform that brings all players in the supply chain together, Ariat now has full view of quality.

Additionally, inspectors from factories, third-party agencies and the brand can use the QIMAone mobile app to collect data on site more efficiently, armed with the ability to submit real-time interactive reports and discuss corrective actions immediately. This provides meaningful analytics and insights that help better track and predict potential issues before they become critical challenges, according to a media statement by QIMA.

QIMA is fully aligned with Ariat’s philosophy of enabling quality factory ownership. QIMAone is a direct result of QIMA’s commitment to soliciting feedback, listening to client challenges, speaking to clients about today’s business realities, and demonstrably seeking ways to continuously improve the products and services they provide.

“In a time of increased instability and travel restrictions limiting in-person inspections, QIMAone empowers brands with QIMA’s industry-leading best practices to align all stakeholders digitally on a common quality framework anytime, anywhere. Drawing from real-time data, brands can schedule local inspectors with just one click or have factories conduct self-inspections. As a result, QIMAone will help Ariat minimise disruptions at a time when effective supply chain quality management has become even more critical due to a number of converging factors,” Sebastien Breteau, CEO, QIMA said.

“We are very excited about the QIMAone quality management platform and it could not have come at a better time. Its intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard and mobile app enable us to collect reliable data on inspections and provides a more accurate view of the quality and compliance performance of our supply chain. We can now empower our vendor partners with the ability to conduct self-inspections, analyse results, plan corrective actions, and monitor progress with full visibility. We’re confident that QIMAone will help us to establish transparency and synchronise efforts to ensure product quality, drive proactive continuous improvement, and reduce associated costs in the most effective manner,” George Rodriguez, VP sourcing, procurement, quality at Ariat said.
