Costco Collaborative Retail Exchange (CRX) is a single, global solution for category, POS and supply chain tracking at Costco, which is available in US, Canada, Mexico and now Australia.
The state-of-the-art technology platform gives manufacturers a detailed solution for total Costco tracking. Rather than relying on several disparate data sources to gather information, manufacturers can use this single, overarching tool to obtain a full view of Costco’s global business. The platform provides a consistent set of Costco internal data points to meet all Costco manufacturer needs and facilitates a collaborative relationship between manufacturers and buyers.
More than 750 global vendors have participated in the Costco CRX service since it launched in the United States in 2004 and in Canada in 2009.
“The Costco CRX platform has been a tremendous success in the US and Canada, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer our manufacturers in Australia the same quality solution and enable a more global view of Costco’s sales,” Costco Australia General Merchandising Manager Rick Woods said.
Information Resources, Inc. (IRI), the provider of Costco POS and inventory information, announced the launch of Costco CRX in Australia this week.
