LONGUEUIL, QC, Oct. 9, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - MERX Networks Inc., a Canadian leader in Strategic Sourcing, and subsidiary of Mediagrif Interactive Technologies Inc. (TSX: MDF), has been awarded a contract by Service New Brunswick to upgrade the New Brunswick Opportunity Network (NBON) to the latest version of MERX technology.
Through this agreement, MERX will continue its long-standing association with Service New Brunswick by enhancing the automated stream of New Brunswick opportunity notice information to include UNSPSC coding categories, thereby providing suppliers who use the network with a one-stop shop.
This enhancement will further strengthen the overall MERX-based content portfolio while providing greater exposure to New Brunswick-based organizations when they post opportunities. The syncing of NBON UNSPSC codes is a CETA-compliant tool, making the MERX platform a central point of access – a winning solution for everyone.
"We are committed to our relationship with Service New Brunswick and are pleased to offer a design with the whole network in mind," said Mediagrif Vice President, Canadian Operations Jean-Michel Stam. "This latest version delivers to NBON a seamless sync of data feeds which offers a better user experience to suppliers. This award further consolidates our position as the Canadian leader in Strategic Sourcing," added Mr. Stam.
