High-Tech Innovation, robotics & digitalization: How brands can pick up the pace of production cycles
In a world where consumer expectations and trends are increasingly shaped at the speed of Instagram, brands are being forced to take note and explore on-demand manufacturing and personalisation. The mismatch right now is that a digital consumer is being served by an analogue supply chain. The rise of digital media only magnifies the issue.
To become competitive, fashion retailers and brands need to embrace new production strategies and technologies, such as data and intelligence, robotics and digitalization, to use customer data to provide tailored, on-demand items.
Join us to discuss the four key steps to working smarter and faster:
- Know who your customer is!
- Building flexibility into your production model
- Innovation – technology is the answer
- Empowering people
