SA apparel software developer iSync expands to US

The iSyncSolutions team, who developed the apparel ERP & PLM software system Sync, has known for a while that their product is world-class, having won tenders for big SA retailers over international competitors. Now firmly established as the market leader for Apparel software in South Africa, Sync will fly to new heights this year with expansion into the USA.

Terry Gormley & Peter Booysen of iSyncSolutions have just returned from Las Vegas, where they exhibited at Magic Market Week, the world’s largest apparel trade show. MAGIC MARKET WEEK is the most comprehensive global market for contemporary fashion and apparel sourcing. Each February and August, MAGIC MARKET WEEK unites the largest influential network of buyers, brands, media, and decision makers in Las Vegas at conveniently merchandised show areas.

“What we have seen in the US is a number of older systems which have been around for 2-3 decades & have not improved much from when they were first developed”, says Booysen. Compare this to Sync, which has added 10 new modules within the last 2 ½ years alone. The IT industry has reinvented itself over the last 3 years with a huge change in the way people deal with information on a daily basis, which puts more focus & importance on having an agile development capability to be able to keep up with continually changing technology. Sync’s highly skilled team works daily on developing & enhancing the system to ensure that it remains the best possible solution for apparel businesses.

From an affordability perspective, Sync is significantly better priced than international competitors, while offering up to 5 times more features & modules than other systems. This converts into a much shorter return on investment (ROI) & better value for money.

Sync is forging ahead of international competition with cutting edge software that delivers visibility into the supply chain, specifically Product life Cycle Management (PLM). “We have recently expanded Sync to include web based modules for areas of the application where users require a mobile experience & where external suppliers need to provide updates.

This has been piloted by the introduction of a web based QA module, Task Module and Vendor Portal. The QA module allows offsite users & suppliers to capture garment Quality Audit submissions thereby improving efficiency in the QA process, reducing lead times & improving communication.

The web based task module allows users to provide valuable order updates whilst they are out of the office and also links suppliers to the critical path module.” The improvement in visibility in the supply chain is something that has underpinned massive improvements in performance & growth, which has been proven by brands such as the phenomenally successful fast-fashion retailer Zara.
