“The fashion industry is witnessing a paradigm shift in the competitive sphere and hence fashion businesses need technologies that help to accelerate thinking, streamlining decision making, reduce costs and improve agility,” Infor says.

Infor Fashion is a suite of software products designed specifically for small- to large-sized fashion, apparel, footwear, accessories, luxury goods, and textile companies.”

“CII - Institute of Logistics organized this conference to provide our members with insights into the best technology practices in the fashion sector, which was supported by Infor as the knowledge & strategy partner and content provider,” said KV Mahidhar, Head at CII Institute of Logistics.

Veterans and experts from fashion and retail technology addressed brand and logistical challenges faced by the apparel-textile-fashion industry in India, highlighting the need for demand planning and forecasting, managing inventories and collaborating effectively with value chain partners. (AR)
