Gail Greatorex interviews Matt Smith of ICIX

How do you know what’s in your products? Which companies are supplying the component parts? Who’s provided them with the raw materials? Have independent checks been done along the way? How can you manage the myriad actions and transactions that go into your product? ICIX is a global company that enables transparency throughout the supply chain. In this interview, Matt explains the value of whole-of-system transparency using data systems, compared with product traceability.
