The textile and apparel sector of India needs to embrace modern technology and change their attitude towards new technological advancements, said the strategy director of Global Fashion Industry, Mr. Robert McKee to fibre2fashion on the sidelines of ‘InPower of Fashion – Business Efficiency Series’ seminar in Mumbai.

Talking about the importance of technology, he says, “Without the right source of information, without the business intelligence and without the right data available, it will be difficult for any organization to take up the right decision.”

In the context of Indian textile and clothing industry, he said, “The manufacturers need to be more open in embracing new technology, as there cannot be a cheaper and easier way for doing everything. In today’s new environment, companies with right kind of software can excel.”

“Right kind of software for textile and garment industry will help the manufacturers to have the right data to reduce the number of things to guess and increase the things that supports decision making,” he continues. 

According to him, the most unique things about the textile and garment industry of India is that it provides exports in smaller and more frequent batches “unlike countries like China that look for large orders,” he adds.

“Indian textile and clothing manufacturers should concentrate more on domestic market and should focus on serving the domestic economy,” he opines.
