TradeCard Releases Document Management and Collaboration to Facilitate Quality and Compliance

Trade Platform Helps Companies Control and Share Key Documents With Members of Private Trade Communities to Ensure Accuracy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - TradeCard, Inc. has released the latest version of its supply chain collaboration platform featuring new enhancements for document management and distribution in an online portal environment that enables in-depth communication between supply chain partners. The TradeCard Community page allows members to plug into a private community to disclose documents to partners and store and communicate important information such as compliance instructions, customs manuals, routing guides, human rights guidelines, process updates and training materials in an easy-to-use online location.

"Today, more than 4,000 brands, retailers and suppliers rely on TradeCard for collaboration and communication with trade partners, and in the coming months they will face a number of new trade requirements. Our latest enhancements will be a major step towards compliance," said Kurt Cavano, CEO of TradeCard, Inc. "On TradeCard, buyers and suppliers can go to one place to find all key documents from purchase order through settlement, as well as customs manuals, rules and transaction instructions for compliance and quality, and customized training materials. It's an easy way to communicate with trade partners to eliminate errors, delays and costs while ensuring quality and compliance."

New border protection and consumer safety laws such as 10+2 and CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Information Act) are placing pressure on U.S.-based brands and retailers to improve communication and collaboration with supply partners to comply. The TradeCard Platform empowers users to access and share many of the key data elements necessary for compliance with regulations, within a simplified online environment. The latest TradeCard features enable users to upload and share documents with all members of their community using just a web browser. Users can set up and manage shared files, set descriptions and customize and share documents with a private community of trade partners.

TradeCard helps retailers and brands source smarter and faster through a rapidly deployed network that connects and enables the extended supply chain.
