BOZEMAN, Mont. — January 21, 2013 — TEXbase, a leading provider of web-based, on-demand and
interactive Product Integrity Management software solutions, has now amassed more than 100
suppliers and testing labs on TEXbase CONNECT, its on demand supplier collaboration platform.
CONNECT securely unifies brands, retailers, suppliers and labs for material and product
development, testing protocols, RSL’s, COC’s, quality testing and compliance documentation.
TEXbase delivers Quality data management, supplier collaboration and product compliance
solutions that improve quality, streamline operations, manage compliance and reduce cost.
The TEXbase collaboration platform includes new suppliers like YKK, Esquel Enterprises, TAL
Group and testing labs such as SGS Consumer Testing Services, and UL-STR, which increases the
breadth and depth of collaboration options for our brand and retail customers.
CONNECT provides brands and retailers with real-time access to their supplier and testing lab
data, by virtue of its multi-dimensional collaboration platform which reduces production errors and
ultimately lowers the cost of non-compliance. CONNECT provides suppliers with a solution to promote
materials and components to TEXbase brand clients, who can instantly search, view and import
materials directly into their product development process.
Joe Walkuski, Founder and CEO, TEXbase: “CONNECT is a unique platform and represents the
underpinnings of our entire solution suite, providing a data management and collaboration platform
that produces a single version of the truth by uniting brands, retailers, suppliers and labs. Much
of the apparel industry suffers from manual, fragmented and linear business processes that consume
too much time and introduce too much risk. CONNECT provides actionable data, not just documents and
a streamlined shared process that enables brands to innovate, suppliers to rapidly increase sales
and labs to cost effectively test and validate compliance requirements. This milestone of 100
CONNECT partners, validates market requirements and highlights the unique value TEXbase enables. We
expect the CONNECT ecosystem to continue its rapid growth throughout this new year.”
