Mercado Solutions

Supplier Vetting

The success of your products starts before an order is even placed. Mercado helps you better understand and validate your supplier’s capabilities and ensure that they, in turn, understand your requirements. The result? Minimize unforeseen issues and unnecessary re-work that is costly and significantly hinders your time to market.

Supplier Compliance

Social, supply chain, and regulatory compliance has never been more important, with increased consumer expectations and heightened governmental pressures. Establish, share, and monitor supplier compliance with Mercado’s Compliance Kits. Ensuring on-going compliance to prevent products being held up downstream. Quality control in the first mile is the key to speed in the final mile.

Supplier Onboarding

After a supplier has been vetted, it can take weeks (if not months) to get them integrated and plugged into the complex supply chain network. Mercado eases this process by onboarding your suppliers in 30 minutes or less. Enabling them to start receiving orders within minutes, so you receive your products sooner.

Order Management

Every day, importers and suppliers around the world rely on email, spreadsheets, and printed, analog purchase orders to manage millions of dollars’ worth of inventory. Mercado’s patented digital Purchase Order puts you back in charge of the planning, buying, and moving process. Keeping you digitally connected to your orders, suppliers, and products throughout the entire process, so you can be assured your products are completed exactly as ordered and delivered ahead of schedule.

Production Controls

Delays in the production process can result in a domino-effect of issues, dramatically affecting downstream operations and adversely impacting your ability to get products to market on time. Mercado’s in-built Production Controls ensure your orders are executed as planned – from first to final mile. Reducing the risk of unexpected damages, defects, delays, and discrepancies along the way.

 

Mercado Features

Native Language Translation

Language barriers can present a variety of challenges when collaborating with suppliers. Reduce miscommunication and share information seamlessly across your teams and partners with Mercado’s in-built language translation. Allowing parties to view details in their native language and avoiding those ‘lost in translation’ moments that throw-up unnecessary issues and delays further downstream.

eDocuments

There are many crucial and specific documents required for your products to ship seamlessly and arrive at destination. Mercado automatically creates all the necessary documentation you need to successfully plan, buy, and move products across your supply chain,and stores them against the relevant order and booking. So you can proactively manage paperwork with ease and access all necessary documentation at every step.

Change Control

An average order has seven changes made throughout the sourcing and buying process. Importers must effectively manage these changes to ensure that products arrive as agreed, in the right configuration, and in the right quantity. Mercado automates the change control process, tracking all changes live against the order, eliminating mistakes and miscommunication that can create delays and confusion.

Media Sharing

Not all products are cut and dry — when it comes to colors, fabrics, sizes, shapes, styles, materials, fonts, boxes, and more, it’s easy to mess up an order during production. With Mercado, ensure what you order is what you get. In-built media sharing tools allow suppliers to send you audio notes and videos of your products as they are being produced. No more surprises at shore — when you get your products to destination, you can be confident that you can get them straight to market.
