Brands and Co-man Collaboration

The only solution for outsourced manufacturing partners, brands, and everything in between.

More co-mans,
more challenges

Co-man use is on the rise. A recent survey of the TraceGains community reported that 55% of companies use more than 10 co-manufacturing partners to help reduce labor and operation costs, limit risk, and get products to market faster.

Manufacturing partnerships expand options, but they also introduce complications.  To succeed, brands and co-mans need is a 360-degree view of partnerships, the materials flowing through them, and the finished products being delivered. 

Networked Finished Goods brings it all together

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to working with co-mans. But regardless of what your co-man relationship looks like, its important you don’t feel like it’s a tangled web where essential information and documents get siloed and die. TraceGains Networked Finished Goods gives users the ability to keep all documentation, from suppliers, ingredients, co-mans, finished good specs, and wrap it up in a nice bow to be able to give it to your final retailers or customers.
