SingTel, MSC team up to provide apparel service
Jan '08
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) and Hong Kong-based solution provider MSC Limited announced a strategic alliance agreement to offer the SingTel Global Apparel solution.

This enables apparel manufacturers to efficiently manage their production lines, processes, merchandising, purchasing and inventories.

As the first of its kind in Asia, the fully-managed solution enables the seamless sharing of information between manufacturing plants and offices around the world. Global connectivity is provided through SingTel's award-winning ConnectPlus IP-VPN (based on MPLS1 technology) and Satellite IP service.

Leveraging MSC's Factory Floor application, the SingTel Global Apparel solution uses cutting-edge Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to capture real-time production information and worker performance data throughout the production process.

It allows supervisors to monitor and make timely adjustments to the production line to ensure optimal efficiency. Production bottlenecks can be identified in real-time, allowing manufacturers to streamline, standardise and simplify processes.

Mr Edgar Tung, Chief Operating Officer of MSC said: “The solution reduces the cost of operations by minimising the number of errors and defects. It can improve factory floor productivity by up to 30 per cent, with savings of up to 8 per cent.”
