Core Solutions, a leading provider of extended product lifecycle
management, global sourcing and supplier collaboration systems for the
retail industry, today announced it has signed an agreement with Safeway
to implement CORE’s CBX Enterprise software to support the retailer’s
global sourcing and direct import operations.
As a leading U.S. grocery retailer, Safeway’s supply chain, from concept
to delivery, has been engineered to ensure their high standards.
The CBX Extended PLM system will help Safeway streamline sourcing,
order, logistics and finance to enable greater operational efficiencies.
As part of the end-to-end solution provided to Safeway, CBX will
automate the tendering process and facilitate order planning and
execution. CBX will also support Safeway in managing supplier
onboarding, quality assurance and shipment inspections, helping Safeway
comply with regulations such as ISF 10+2.
To minimize unnecessary manual data input and increase productivity, CBX
will be integrated with Safeway’s systems as well as 3PLs and customs
Safeway will utilize the Software-as-a-Service version of CORE’s CBX,
which is delivered through CORE’s robust cloud platform, eliminating the
need to invest in additional infrastructure.
“Safeway is a highly respected and innovative supermarket chain,” said
Michael Hung, CEO of Core Solutions. “We are very pleased to win them as
a client and partner and look forward to working with Safeway, rolling
out CBX and making a positive contribution to Safeway’s supply chain.”
