Intact to Develop and Advance GRMAuditsphere

The Global Retailer and Manufacturer Alliance (GRMA) has announced the selection of Intact to develop and advance the GRMAuditsphere – the global product safety and quality management system developed by the GRMA. Along with the GRMA certification program, GRMAuditsphere serves the worldwide dietary supplements, cosmetics, and OTC industry as the repository of all relevant data related to audits and certification.

The new GRMAuditsphere is expected to launch in November 2021, with the explicit goal of providing easy access for manufacturers, certification bodies, and retail members.

“After careful review and consideration, the GRMA has initiated a long-term partnership with Intact. When reviewing our options for this important project, we wanted to identify a company with a global footprint, a market leader within the audit, certification, and standard management space, and an organization with a strong analytic platform to support our audit integrity program. We are confident in Intact’s capacity to meet our needs and have been building a unique tool for the GRMA’s certification program.”

Allyn Shultis, Executive Director, GRMA

GRMA and Intact – Strong Partners

In support of the economic value and impact that GRMA member companies have worldwide, Intact’s software solutions will provide all industry stakeholders with an entirely digitized auditing system. In addition, the improved platforms will provide innovative capabilities, value-added data access, and upgraded efficiencies to auditors and certification bodies in the sector. The entire retail and manufacturing community will benefit from the Intact Platform. This includes areas like day-to-day quality, audits, and the ability to later apply Intact Analytics for long-term trend, root cause, and audit anomaly monitoring.

“We are thrilled that the Intact Platform will be used by every player in the quality, auditing, and certification ecosystem of these highly utilized product categories. The GRMA has established the groundwork for long-term analysis and quality across the sector. Their digital transformation is a major leap forward and solidifies their stature as a global leader. Coupled with the Intact Platform to manage audits, certification, supplier directories, and more, the GRMA is on solid footing for long term success.”

Jake Lewin, CEO, Intact – US
