The home improvement company aims to enhance its product buying, creating visibility to more than 200,000 suppliers. Through RangeMe, suppliers around the world will have a direct and unified journey to present their products to Wickes buyers.
RangeMe first launched in 2014 and is used today by more than 15,000 retail buyers in the UK, Europe, North America, and APAC region.
The company helps retailers and buying teams scale product sourcing efforts with “streamlined submissions, simplified discovery tools, and the industry standard digital sell sheet.”
“Wickes are very excited to begin working with RangeMe to expand our access to new products and innovation and to streamline the procurement process,” Wickes director of strategic procurement and responsible sourcing Andrew Cotterill said.
RangeMe chief executive Nicky Jackson added: “This partnership forms part of the Wickes wider digital strategy and we are thrilled to be a part of this journey with such a loved household-name retailer in the UK, as they transform their product sourcing experience.
“This is also an extraordinary opportunity for suppliers around the world to connect directly with Wickes buyers and showcase their products”
