Despite a rather inexplicable political disruption in the US, and unrest within the EU, big brands in the West are still outsourcing apparel manufacturing to South Asian countries. The future of the industry according to a few recent reports, including one published by The World Bank, is looking extremely positive and upbeat.
The focus is no longer only on low cost; investors want guaranteed reliability of the product, but most importantly, highly responsive and rapid delivery. So how then, do apparel manufacturers in South Asia grab hold of this prospective opportunity?
The solution lies in digital investment that accelerates business functions. For most small to medium-scale apparel manufacturers in the region that were established towards the turn of the millennium to cater to growing apparel demands, operations were added accordingly. It was started off with an inventory management system. As these businesses grew to become end-to-end service providers, supply chain functions were added. The result was a fully-fledged, complete solution for operations with multiple departments and applications trying their best to fit in and function as one cohesive unit, increasing scalability and agility of business operations.
As a global technology solutions partner providing enterprise technology solutions among other service, Brandix i3 develops apparel ERP technology to address the challenges faced by these businesses.
