If time-to-market is a measure of success, how do you improve the odds?
Changes in consumer habits are causing an upheaval in the fashion industry and brands and retailers must adapt if they want to survive. Social media provides new means to capture the voice of the customer and refine product offerings. Brands compete globally as well as locally and across multiple channels. But these new revenue streams also increase the demand for diversification, which means companies need flexibility to develop, cost and manage product variations. Without global visibility across seasons, categories, products and variations companies waste precious time tracking down information and being reactive instead of proactive. They also miss opportunities to leverage shared materials, optimize product placements decisions based on vendor capacity and manage quality checkpoints, all with negative impact to the bottom line – and to consumer satisfaction.
