Undoubtedly, our industry faces a fundamental challenge as a result of the impact of the worldwide economic shock and as consumer behaviour resets.
It is extensively acknowledged that a key element, which will enable the businesses to survive and move forward, is Digitization.
Digitization has been primarily focused on client-facing services without major consideration at the sustainability of manufacturers, placing huge pressure on the supply chain. Brands and Vendors always strive to work together but in reality, they remain fragmented with different application and siloed data sources inhibiting this crucial connection. Consequently decision-making, and executing at scale continues to be a huge challenge.
A connected digital eco-system linking Brands and Vendors is essential, via affordable, accessible and achievable solutions that integrate and provides real-time digital feedback loops. This will empower the fashion supply chain with connected intelligent applications that optimise end to end processes, connect people and accelerate design, development, costing, sourcing and manufacturing.
Simple solutions that solve complex questions are essential to ensure man, method and machine work together and flow seamlessly to deliver real-time data-driven decisions.
