German Lighting Pioneer Briloner Adopts TradeBeyond as its End-to-End Supply Chain Platform

Hong Kong – August 24, 2023 – Global lighting brand and retailer Briloner has adopted
TradeBeyond as its multi-enterprise supply chain platform. Briloner will use TradeBeyond to cover its
end-to-end supply chain operations, from product development to sourcing and supply chain.

Retail’s leading provider of supply chain solutions for private label merchandise management,
TradeBeyond has worked closely with Briloner to implement the platform’s product development, sourcing, supplier management, and vendor purchase order modules. Briloner has also gone live with TradeBeyond’s sophisticated logistics capabilities, which the company uses to combine purchase orders and consolidate shipments. These tools have already created significant efficiency
improvement and cost savings.

This fall, Briloner will launch a second phase with TradeBeyond’s quality and sample management modules as well, including its innovative Mobile Inspector app, which allows quality inspectors to
record all data electronically on tablets and mobile devices, and easily attach photos, videos, and voice memos to inspection reports. The app eliminates the massive amounts of manual work and
corresponding errors created by paper reporting and data sharing across multiple software systems.

Briloner sources across Europe and Asia, with vendors in all major European countries. The company has already onboarded more than 100 suppliers on to TradeBeyond.

“With such a vast network of global suppliers to manage, we recognized the need to automate core
processes and simplify workflows,” Briloner’s Procurement Department explained of the decision.
“TradeBeyond’s platform was best equipped to meet such a wide range of our business needs. Over
time the platform will cover all of our supply chain operations, and we’re already enjoying the
benefits of the efficiencies it has introduced.”

“We’ve worked closely with Briloner to implement solutions that will help Briloner continue to scale,
synchronize processes, and to better navigate their global supply chain,” said Tim Chiu, Senior Vice
President at TradeBeyond. “It’s a privilege to help drive the continued growth of such an esteemed
