SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – October 9, 2014 – How well retailers and manufacturers manage supply chain compliance is critical to mitigating risk and ensuring consumer safety, and technology is playing an increasingly crucial role. CIO Review, a technology magazine focused on enterprise solutions that redefine businesses, announced today that icix, a leading supply chain risk management company, was selected for its annual 20 Most Promising Compliance Technology Solution Providers list. icix was chosen for its expertise in effectively and efficiently managing risk across global supply chains through cloud applications that help companies manage supply chain and regulatory compliance, product safety and corporate social responsibility.
The annual list of companies is selected by a panel of experts and members of CIO Review’s editorial board to recognize and promote technology entrepreneurship. “icix has been on our radar for some time now for stirring a revolution in the compliance space, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven solutions,” said Harvi Sachar, publisher and founder, CIO Review. “icix’s solutions continued to break new ground within the past year benefiting its customers, and we’re excited to have them featured on our top companies list.”
“We are honored to be included in CIO Review’s 20 Most Promising Compliance Technology Solution Providers list,” said Matt Smith, founder and chief strategy officer, icix. “Managing supply chain compliance is incredibly complex. Today’s increasingly global network of trading partners poses significant challenges for most companies in gaining the appropriate level of transparency into their extended supply chain. This lack of transparency exposes companies to significant risk and the potential for legal and financial liabilities, damaged brand reputation and even customer injury, illness or death. Companies need a centralized way to drive compliance and monitor their supply chain, and we’ve spent the last decade developing software solutions like Direct Test and Audit Manager that make managing compliance much more efficient, enabling control and reducing risk.”
