QCA and ZOOMcatalog Announce Strategic 'Brand Safety' Partnership
Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), Chicago, and ZOOMcatalog have partnered to help industry distributors easily search catalogs from suppliers with verified responsible sourcing best practices. ZOOMcatalog has created a page that allows distributors to refine their search results to only show catalogs from those suppliers that currently hold QCA accreditation. As a bonus, distributors will be able to create custom catalogs for their clients that only contain products from accredited sources.
“Understanding the importance of product safety and overall responsible sourcing best practices in general, we are excited to make it even easier for our distributors to find products from suppliers accredited by QCA," said Bryony Zasman, co-founder and chief product officer of ZOOMcatalog. "Almost every QCA-accredited supplier has their customizable catalogs and flyers available in our search engine, so allowing people to search across only those suppliers was a no-brainer."
“As industry distributors ramp up their responsible sourcing efforts, they are also seeking effective ways to manage all the compliance complexities better," said Tim Brown, MAS, executive director of operations for QCA. "As a result, suppliers that are accredited by QCA are becoming the sought-after solution. Accredited supplier processes are routinely validated by independent third-parties to assure ethical and legal compliance throughout their supply chains. This gives distributors and end-buyers the assurances they are looking for while, at the same time, allowing them to focus less on regulation and more on growing their business. Partnering with ZOOMcatalog, now makes it even easier for distributors to locate products manufactured by suppliers with proven track records of going above and beyond the typical brand safety norms.”
