“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.

The main objective of the conference was to demonstrate the business benefits of adopting applications which are simple to use, beautiful, and can help provide continued competitive edge by achieving high quality standards and at the same time reduce costs and risks attached.

He added, “Infor is working collaboratively with enterprises to help address their industry challenges as we provide specialized, purpose-built solutions that consolidate financials, sourcing, manufacturing, supply chain, sales and distribution management information into one coherent view of operations.”

“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)
