The ARENA Alliance, which is focused on sourcing, negotiation and quality for home- and garden-improvement products, is looking to CBX Software to help manage its product development lifecycle with a focus on private label. CBX Software — and its end-to-end PLM Software in particular — now will be used by ARENA and its allies, which include eight leading home improvement retailers in Europe. 

Earlier in the year Nashville, Tenn.-based Tractor Supply spoke with Store Brands about its use of a CBX private label sourcing platform as well. 

"After a long evaluation period, we are very confident that we have chosen CBX Software as the best partner to address our sourcing issues and are looking forward to evolving our ability to meet the needs of the changing retail landscape," said Vincent Maïquès, ARENA president. "We are completing a thorough transformation plan within the Alliance, and solutions at CBX Software are ideal for the goals we are looking to achieve, among them is to continue to develop the most efficient solutions for our partners to source from suppliers worldwide."

CBX Software offers a supply chain management software hub, which modernizes processes to help companies overcome the challenges that accompany sourcing thousands of products from around the world. 

"We are very happy that ARENA has successfully chosen CBX Software," says Tim Chiu, senior vice president of CBX Software. "In partnership with the entire Alliance, we are creating an integrated digital platform that will enable ARENA and its allies to boost speed, quality and efficiency, driving future expansion of home improvement private label and the sourcing from suppliers across the globe."
