Issues and Challenges

Many companies incorporate fashionable and functional materials, combined with quality, comfort and performance, to distinguish their products in the marketplace. These companies need to fulfill their product integrity and compliance requirements by effectively tracking all product materials throughout the development lifecycle. Maintaining a current and accurate listing of product materials can be a difficult task, especially for organizations relying on a global supplier base. With an increase in demand for specific colors, styles and products, companies are also facing complexities that can lead to unexpected material shortages.

Supply Chain Collaboration

Today, supply chain collaboration between buyers and their overseas vendors is usually conducted with an unending merry-go-round of Excel documents, emails, last minute changes and zero visibility into the real-time status of orders and shipments.

We change that by providing a cloud-based platform that all parties access across the supply chain.
