A partnership between supply chain compliance solutions supplier QIMA and Bamboo Rose, a multi-enterprise platform that connects retailers with industry business partners for global sourcing and supply chain management, offers direct integration between the two company platforms. Shared clients will now be able to use the out-of-the-box connector to facilitate quality control and supplier compliance management in the supply chain.

"We believe supply chain digitization, already well under way for many brands and retailers, will accelerate following the recent disruptions that have hit global retail," said Mathieu Labasse, QIMA CMO. "In that light, we are convinced that integrating QIMA digital tools with quality and compliance data from across the global supply chain technology ecosystem is the way forward and we are delighted to join forces with the great team at Bamboo Rose to create value for our respective customers."

The new cross-platform integration allows consumer brands and retailers to trigger factory quality inspections and compliance audits using QIMA from the Bamboo Rose platform, along with the convenience of retrieving reports and data within a single user experience. The quality and compliance data collected by QIMA is aggregated within Bamboo Rose. This enhances supply chain and order management operations on one platform.

"Transparently managing suppliers and maintaining stringent quality control standards are business critical requirements for our retail and brand client base," said Nate Fleming, VP of marketing at Bamboo Rose. "We're excited to partner with QIMA on a market leading platform integration that weds their strong digital supply chain compliance tools with Bamboo Rose's breadth of digital product and supply chain process support and data intelligence."
