Fashion and Apparel Software
Fashion and apparel brands face some of the most significant supply chain challenges of any industry. In addition to ever-evolving consumer desires, fashion product shelf lives made even shorter by seasonality. Like most industries, apparel brands have found significant success via eCommerce; but fashion products have one of the highest return rates of any product type. Add to that the increasing importance of sustainability, rising transportation costs, razor-thin margins, and a high rate of store replenishment, and it’s no wonder fashion businesses are looking for ways to simplify their operations.
