Coats web based zip sampling service reduces lead times

UK based industrial thread and consumer textile crafts marketer Coats Group plc said it is launching Coats Opti Express, a revolutionary zip sampling service which reduces lead times.

According to a Coats press release, this new service for the fashion and textiles industries delivers zips via a web-based state of the art sampling system.

The new service is being showcased on the Coats stand in hall 5.1, stand B-30 at Texprocess, the international fair for the processing of textile and other apparel materials in Frankfurt, Germany.

Opti Express provides the fastest and simplest zips sampling service in the market and while current lead times for a standard zip sample averages 14 days, Coats Opti Express reduces this to just five days.

“The lead time for a fully customised zip will be reduced from several weeks to 10 days,” Coats added.

The increased speed of delivery is driven by newly created digital tools which help customers quickly and easily select the most appropriate zip sample for their needs, specify the shade and length and select a puller.

“Production of the sample starts as soon as the request is submitted and the digital tool also helps eliminate several time consuming manual interventions in the ordering and production process,” Coats informed.

Each individual zip comprises several elements including tape, teeth, slider and puller but with so many different varieties and styles to each element, the choice can be overwhelming and consequently time consuming.

Opti Express said it has a large and easily searchable online catalogue of components featuring intuitive layouts, automated zip and puller configurators and guidance to easily select the right zip and puller.

Rajiv Sharma, global CEO, Industrial, Coats Group plc, said, “Coats Opti Express is an industry game changer as it makes zip selection simple, quick and easy and significantly reduces sample delivery time.”

Picking the perfect colour match is also made easy using the Coats Colour Capsure device and the online application helps locate the closest sample, while custom pullers can be ordered using four rapid sampling options.

These include technical drawings for bulk production in two days, 3D plastic samples printed within three days and the Coats propriety cast metal prototype, the ProtoPul, ready in five days.

“It is also possible to track the order request at all times by logging on to the online system,” the industrial threads maker informed.

The new service has been piloted in China, Sri Lanka, UK and the US and is now being rolled out to more customers.

In the next phase of the project, Coats will add a ‘Bulk’ order facility to help convert sample requests to bulk orders.

Coats markets its products in more than 70 countries, employing over 20,000 people across six continents, while 2014 revenues stood at S$1.7 billion. (AR)
