The textile industry has a full array of software technologies available to it. From front of store POS solutions to factory floor pack and scan solutions to delivery visibility offerings. But in order to be competitive in the future, it is important for the industry to choose the right software.

According to industry representative, textile sector is comfortable in spending on technologies which can provide analytical data about the business deficiency and consumer choice.

In a conversation with fibre2fashion, Mr. Bob Mckee, fashion industry strategy director of Infor Global, said, “Generally every member of the textile value chain is more comfortable spending on technology that produces visual results and those are directly related to the product.”

“The textile sector is looking forward to software which can provide constant input and feedback regarding good decisions versus bad, profitable products versus those that are losing money as well as tying all the yarn and textile demand to the brand because ultimately consumer is the only way to produce successful results in the future,” he explains.

Echoing him, Rasitha Wickramasinghe, director of business development at GT Nexus, says, “Consumer today have the power to demand what they want, where they want to shop, how they want it to be delivered and where they want to get it.”

“Hence, remaining competitive in the future requires a well-aligned, agile supply chain that allows the textile sector know about where their entire inventory resides. Having this visibility and then being able to act upon it to get product delivered to meet consumer demand is the key to competing in the future,” he concludes.
