Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is proud to announce the launch of iCare in Bangladesh.

Following its successful introduction in Turkiye last November and India in March, this innovative digital platform is set to support the local textile industry by offering a seamless and pioneering solution for managing testing processes from start to finish, a press release said.

Driven by increasing regulatory scrutiny and heightened consumer expectations, there is growing demand among customers in the ATIC space for bespoke, end-to-end solutions that can improve transparency and traceability around the processing and testing of lab samples, reports BSS.

iCare, our one-stop Science-based Customer Excellence portal, is designed to address these challenges, providing clients with a pioneering, industry leading solution that will allow them to seamlessly manage and monitor their testing processes from start to finish.

With the textile industry serving as a crucial pillar of the Bangladesh economy, the launch of iCare in the country -featuring English and Bengali language options - showcases Intertek's steadfast commitment to empowering manufacturers in the region to achieve superior quality standards with ease.

At a launching event on Monday, Sandeep Das, President of Global Softlines and Hardlines and Regional Managing Director South Asia at Intertek, said, "iCare's industry-leading capabilities are not only a response to current customer demand but also a testament to Intertek Softlines' commitment to pioneering innovation. By harnessing advanced technologies and redefining the benchmark for transparency and traceability, iCare sets a new standard for the ATIC industry and solidifies Intertek Softlines' position as an industry-leader for customer excellence in the field of quality assurance and testing services."

Neyamul Hasan, Country Managing Director, Intertek Bangladesh, said: "I am proud of Intertek's strides in Bangladesh since the year 2000, starting with audit and inspection services and expanding to establish state-of-the-art laboratories in key locations like Dhaka, Chattogram, Gazipur, and Savar. The introduction of iCare marks a significant milestone, streamlining our customers' interactions with Intertek Softlines labs and reinforcing our dedication to quality, safety and sustainability through continuous innovation."

Shelly Lo, Senior Director of Marketing and Innovation for Global Softlines and Hardlines at Intertek, said, "iCare's launch underscores Intertek's commitment to providing innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers. The platform has been designed with the suppliers' needs at the forefront, setting it apart in the ATIC market."

iCare operates alongside Intertek's world-beating Global Market Access, i2Q, Interlink, and ToxClear solutions, meaning that its customers can benefit from the company's full range of Total Quality Assurance offerings.
