A PLAN FOR EVERY BUSINESS AND SUPPLY CHAIN   Best Viewed in Landscape on Mobile Devices

LINK is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, with subscription plans and features scaled for any size retailer, brand, and supply chain, from one factory to 1000s of factories, vendors, agents, licensees, and labs. Pricing is not affected by number of users — register/login for details. Your privacy matters to us.



Your subscription doesn't start until the first phase of the project is completed and your site is configured with your test program(s), supply chain data, and user login(s). Depending on your plan, this phase also includes the branded site, test requests, and test reports, along with custom fields configuration. Naturally, you will have an investment of time into the project, but we minimize the impact with this quick launch and multi-phase approach. AFIRM Members have it even easier: LINK is delivered with a starter configuration based on the AFIRM RSL, as well as a representative product quality/performance testing program.
