CMX Tapped to Provide the Defense Commissary Agency with Product Recall Management
Software for Stores and Distribution Centers Worldwide
CMX1 Recall Management software automates the entire product recall process, allowing retailers to
respond more quickly while mitigating customer risk and protecting brand reputation
San Diego, Calif. – November 12, 2020 — CMX, a leading provider of Enterprise Quality Management Solutions (EQMS) for supply chain management and operational execution, announced today that the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) has deployed the company’s Product Recall Management solution to manage recalls and voluntary withdrawals in 238 stores and distribution centers worldwide.
Headquartered in Fort Lee, Virginia, DeCA operates a worldwide chain of commissaries providing groceries and household goods to military personnel, veterans, select federal employees, and their families in a safe and secure shopping environment. CMX’s Recall Management software empowers retailers with full lifecycle event management, including investigative tools, automated notifications, real-time response monitoring, and comprehensive record keeping and reporting. The solution will allow DeCA to automate and streamline the product recall process – from initiation to resolution.
Prior to deploying CMX1, DeCA used a manual process for recalls, which included a combination of email and phone for notifications and a spreadsheet for tracking responses and reporting. With nearly 750 food and product recalls per year, the team sought to add additional automation to the process for managing responses and providing analytics and reporting.
“Ensuring the health and safety of our patrons is paramount and CMX1 met our criteria for having a very intuitive and easy-to-use solution, both for our team and store personnel, including the automation needed to monitor and report progress to our leadership team in real-time.”
Richard C. Stith, Jr, Chief, Public Health Division, Defense Commissary Agency.
