Growing Pressures for Brand Owners
As companies diversify their sourcing footprint, the pressure on apparel and footwear brand owners grows. They must deliver the right products at the lowest price with the most innovative materials produced by ethical, responsible partners into customers’ waiting hands right on time—all while collaborating across borders. It can be nearly impossible to exchange necessary supply chain information with trading partners due to the disparate applications and manual processes involved.
The reality of global sourcing is that brand owners need to leverage a single, common communication platform and standardize their procurement practices. The ability to rapidly share information across the supply chain ecosystem—including every key trading partner—will improve performance and guarantee success.

To gain a competitive advantage, brand owners that source from various regions can benefit from automated technology to help manage the end-to-end product lifecycle. Placing a greater focus on rapid product design, collaboration and delivery will enable these companies to reduce product development cycle times and improve time-to-market.
