RangeMe, an online platform that streamlines new product discovery between suppliers & retailers, has launched across the Benelux region. Buyers at retailers across Europe can now source over 750,000 products and connect with more than 200,000 global suppliers to fill their shopping aisles and online stores with curated products meeting consumer demand.
This announcement follows recent RangeMe launches in the UK and APAC earlier this year. Buyers at health and wellness retailer Holland & Barrett are currently partnering with RangeMe as they seek the latest products for their customer base. Suppliers already on RangeMe will immediately be available to European retailers, as they are to US, Canada, UK and APAC retailers.
RangeMe first launched in 2014 and is used today by nearly 15,000 retailers in the US, including Walmart, Sephora, Walgreens, Petco, 7-Eleven and Albertsons. It has quickly established itself as the industry leader for retail product discovery and sourcing by becoming the world’s largest source of brands and products purchased by buyers in the US.
RangeMe helps retailers and their buying teams scale product sourcing efforts with streamlined submissions, simplified discovery tools, and the industry standard digital sell sheet. RangeMe lets buyers filter searches to find brands meeting exact sourcing needs, enables seamless connectivity and collaboration with suppliers, and provides curated collections to help identify and understand category trends and emerging brands.
“The Benelux region represents a powerful economic area in Europe with a strong, well-organised retail sector. It provides the perfect setting for us to launch RangeMe in Europe. Moreover, like in most countries, there is a significant shift to online and retailers will be keen to stay on top of the latest demands and trends. RangeMe will offer buyers a full spectrum of choice to service this shift to remain competitive and relevant for their customers and beyond,” Nicky Jackson, founder and CEO of RangeMe, said in a press release. “We will pick up the heavy lifting for buyers and present the global product market opportunity in one screen.”
“We have grown by virtue of being relevant to our customers over time, around the world. Our customers trust us to offer the widest range of products that meet the highest standards, and we do this day in, day out. Through RangeMe, our buyers will be able to provide products for a wider audience. We want to offer the latest products on our shelves quickly and, with our sustainability agenda in mind, we want to source locally. Additionally, we will quickly scale our buying operations through the platform by reducing the friction and time to get more products on our shelves,” Marc Estourgie, managing director at Holland & Barrett Benelux said.
“This is an exciting development for retailers and suppliers across Europe. Retailers now have access to the latest technology to engage with buyers anywhere seamlessly to drive positive outcomes, faster. Great to have Holland & Barrett adopt RangeMe and it bodes well for our launch and expansion across the Benelux region and further into European markets,” John van der Valk, CEO Europe at RangeMe, said in the release.
