Top 20 Textile and Apparel Technology Solution Companies - 2016
Today, the line between fashion and technology is gradually diminishing. An effective textile supply chain management has become a balancing act between cost, quality, availability and environmental aspects. This is because short product cycles and long production time may lead to forecasting errors and huge variation between the supply and demand. As a result, apparel companies are fast embracing tools like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) for easy workflows and heightened productivity. From the producers of raw material to the grinners, agents, spinners, and fabric makers, these technologies help manage the end to end processes in the arena.
Further, on the consumer side, the textile and apparel sector is incorporating trends like big data, analytics, mobile apps, smart textiles, and interactive dressing rooms that are instrumental in transforming the customers' shopping experience.
