Procurement software provider Porcurant adds module to platform
Cloud-based software provider Procurant has released a new module within its Procurant One platform.
The new module, Procurant Connect, consolidates third-party information for retail buyers and their trading partners and provides quick access to this information during the procurement process. Procurant Connect builds on Procurant One’s open network architecture, providing a hub for produce supply chain data that can be customized and personalized.
Procurant Connect integrates external data sources into Procurant One, a procurement platform for retail grocers and their perishable goods suppliers. Users can access Procurant Connect to quickly get information about:
- Commodity pricing
- Transportation lane rates
- Recall notices
- Currency conversion rates
“Having recall information, from Procurant Connect, right in my Procurant One dashboard will be very helpful. Now, I have to search for recall information in news articles and data from subscriptions. Procurant Connect is a great addition to Procurant One, which has already improved my daily routines since our buyer traded up to Procurant,” said Noemi Aguilar, Account Manager, Duda Farms Fresh Foods.
Procurant Connect is available at no cost to any retailer requesting access. Suppliers on the Procurant One platform have access to Procurant Connect as part of their annual subscription.
Procurant One is a web-based procurement and supply chain platform, connecting all suppliers and stakeholders across the perishable goods supply chain. It is the first new perishable goods buying platform available to retailers in more than 20 years, and it uses modern technology and design to improve the speed, efficiency and reliability of order management in a critical category for retail grocers. Since launching Procurant One in October 2021, the network has added more than 1,000 active users representing more than 70% of the fresh produce and floral industry in North America.
