October has been quite a month so far. The volatility of the financial markets and its impact on the global economy makes it critical to focus on business fundamentals: leveraging every dollar invested while lowering the cost of doing business, and staying extremely close to our customers.
For iTradeNetwork (ITN) it means continuing to focus on our core mission of helping our 5,500+ global distributor, manufacturer, operator and retail customers achieve strong financial returns. ITN's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model allows customers to fully leverage their limited IT investments through our hosted applications available at a fraction of the cost of traditional ERP solutions.
As part of our strategic plan to continue to deliver innovative supply chain management and intelligence solutions to address the unique challenges facing the foodservice and retail industries, we recently completed our merger with Amphire Solutions. The Amphire team, and their proven success in delivering global supply chain management and automation solutions for the foodservice, hospitality and beer, wines and spirits industries, is a strong addition to our growing company.
With Amphire, barbox and Instill as part of the iTradeNetwork family, we now offer the global food industry a proven partner poised to help you, not only survive, but thrive in this challenging economic environment. To learn more about the "new ITN" and how we can help your organization meet and exceed its strategic objectives, visit our updated website at www.itradenetwork.com.
I also look forward to seeing and speaking with you in Las Vegas at the 2009 ITN Global Supply Chain Conference in January. You will hear first hand, from your customers and/or supply chain partners, how they are tackling the challenges of a global supply chain. You will learn best practices from companies that are using advanced analytics to increase sales and collaborating with partners to drive costs out of the supply chain. You will leave this event with the information you need to begin implementing positive changes in your organization immediately. Learn more >>>
Sales Insight Pilot Completed Successfully
The quotes above are statements made by Sales Insight pilot users to express their opinion of ITN's latest product. Sales Insight was developed from the ground up in close collaboration with our users, so we had expected positive feedback. But, the actual responses we received far exceeded our expectations. Our users are sophisticated, knowledgeable individuals who are familiar with the latest technologies. As such, our users know the difference between good and excellent products. Their definitive feedback, coupled with the request to continue using Sales Insight beyond the completed pilot, told us that we had a winning solution.
Sales Insight, the revolutionary, new application for foodservice manufacturers, improves compliance, boosts sales force efficiency and increases trade spend effectiveness. ITN has successfully completed a 5 month pilot program with leading foodservice manufacturers using real world data to drive the application.

Sodexo CaRMA Initiative Momentum Accelerates…Again
When Sodexo selected ITN’s CaRMA solution they were confident that CaRMA would enhance their contract management through better synchronization of data, better collaboration within their supply chain, and the eventual provision of more timely, transparent information.
“We are extremely pleased with the positive response received throughout our vendor community” stated Ann Oka, SVP Supply Chain, Sodexo. “Many of you have invested significant resources to complete your on-boarding efforts and move into live production. You have demonstrated true partnership and as a result of your hard work and commitment, we continue to rapidly grow the number of vendors in live production. I would also like to thank our partners at iTradeNetwork (ITN) who have supported the Sodexo vision and assisted in bringing our vision to life.”
If you are a vendor seeking more information about the Sodexo CaRMA program, either contact your Sodexo Supply Manager or contact ITN at: email@example.com
Since the August “go live” date, dozens of Sodexo supply chain partners and ITN customers have been added to the Contract and Rebate Management (CaRMA) initiative.
