Foodservice distributor leader plans to leverage the X1 platform to automate and integrate operational processes

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - September 25, 2023 - CMX1, the leading provider of enterprise, cloud-based quality, risk, and compliance management solutions for the world’s most trusted businesses, has announced a new partnership with Shamrock Foods. The family-held foodservice supplier selected CMX1 to operationalize its policy and activity management processes so they can provide customers with the safest, highest-quality products possible. 

Based in Phoenix, Ariz., Shamrock Foods is the largest family-held foodservice distributor in the West.

With its extensive network of nationally recognized and valued suppliers and partners, Shamrock is dedicated to driving operational excellence within its own enterprise and throughout its customers’ businesses. These high standards are what ultimately led Shamrock to its partnership with CMX1.

“From quality and safety to brand standards and risk mitigation, the X1 platform is our strategic partner,” said Jared Keefer, Director of Food Safety and Quality Systems at Shamrock Foods Company. “It’s designed to do the heavy lifting by centralizing data, decreasing paper, and enabling automation for our internal processes as we scale. Above all, it elevates standardized workflows and decision-making to allow our teams to focus on cultivating relationships with internal and external business partners.” 

Shamrock Foods is partnering with CMX1 to develop and execute audit, self-assessment, inspection, evaluation, certification, checklist, and survey programs across the organization. With access to tools like an intuitive visual form builder, flexible workflows, automated scheduling and more, Shamrock will benefit from a more integrated, automated, and agile process. Additionally, by leveraging CMX1’s powerful reporting, Shamrock will be able to slice and dice data for valuable and actionable insights—ensuring the brand remains on an upward trajectory toward operational excellence.

“We’re not only excited to partner with Shamrock Foods because of its impressive, 100-year legacy in the foodservice space but also because its mission is very much aligned with CMX1’s,” said Bert Clement, CMX1 CEO. “We are both dedicated to protecting food quality and safety across the entire supply chain and creating superior, safer human experiences for customers. By leveraging PoliciesX1 and ActivitiesX1, Shamrock Foods will be able to elevate its existing quality and risk management processes and establish a new level of excellence—hopefully for the next 100 years.”
