RangeMe launches global retailer solution in A/NZ market

By Catherine Knowles

RangeMe, the company behind the world’s largest product discovery and sourcing platform, has launched its global service to retailers in Australia, New Zealand and the wider APAC region.

Prior to today, retailers using RangeMe in this region were able to access 20,000 local suppliers. Now, they will have access more 200,000 suppliers.

Buyers have already started using RangeMe at retailers including health and beauty retailers Blooms The Chemist and Good Price Pharmacy Warehouse, and pet retailers Pet Circle and Pet Culture.

This expansion into APAC follows RangeMe’s launch in the United Kingdom earlier this month as the company scales operations worldwide.

RangeMe first launched in 2013 and is currently used by more than 12,000 retailers in the United States, including Walmart, Sephora, Walgreens, and Albertsons.

It has become a known name in the retail product discovery and sourcing space by becoming the world’s largest source of brands and products purchased by retail buyers.

The solution is designed to help retailers and their buying teams scale product sourcing efforts with submissions, discovery tools, and the industry standard digital sell sheet.

Buyers can filter searches to find brands and products in order to meet sourcing needs, achieve connectivity and collaboration with suppliers, and offer curated collections to help identify and understand category trends and emerging brands, according to the company.

Overall, suppliers can showcase their range, bring new products to market, increase brand visibility and grow sales, while buyers can use RangeMe to discover new products, search trends and communicate directly with brands.

RangeMe also invites suppliers in the region to join the platform and join those using the place to represent their brand and products to a network of thousands of retail buyers.

RangeMe CEO Nicky Jackson says, “We built RangeMe to connect buyers and suppliers anywhere in the world. Our expansion in the APAC region is a natural extension of this vision.

"Through this expansion, we will enable buyers a wider view of the market and support them to serve the needs of their consumers.

"We’re delighted that several retailers have joined RangeMe’s family of buyers looking to expand choice on their aisles. This will be a transformative experience for their buyers."

Jackson says, “Our mission has always been to empower retailers and suppliers to be productive and successful. The world has become a smaller place, but it remains distant for forging strong cross-border buyer and seller relationships.

"RangeMe will bridge this gap for buyers and sellers around the world and ensure extraordinary products hit store shelves faster than ever before."
