Digital Color Approvals are an easy step in the Digital Transformation Process

Discover e-Solutions Ltd. (DeSL) is pleased to announce the release of the latest module in the company’s suite of software applications designed to enable brands, mills and factories to readily embrace and deploy end to end digital transformation.

The traditional approach to color management has become outdated, open to error and time and money consuming. As brands strive towards complete digital transformation of the supply chain, color management is often forgotten, or misinterpreted.

DeSL’s software solution, created to communicate color requirements at a scientific and digital level throughout the enterprise, enables companies to completely digitalize the previous manual processes which were reliant on a plethora of physical samples which were evaluated via human eye. It is now possible for brands and mills to approve lab dips and strike off’s in real time over the Cloud without the need for physical samples to be sent.

The solution integrates with a range of equipment such as spectrophotometers, digital fabric printers and sublimation printers to shorten production timelines and ensure that quality of color/print is consistent from initial definition right through to final production, irrespective of physical location.

Getting color wrong can lead to increased returns and markdowns. By digitizing color into the supply chain, brands are ensuring consistent color through controlled and scientific methods involving all parties in the process.

To continue the conversation, DeSL’s Julian Mussi, Vice President of Business Solutions, is speaking about the Holistic Approach to Color Management of Digitally Printed Textiles at AATCC/SGIA Digital Textile Printing Conference 4.0 on December 11.

Dynamic Purchasing Platform for Supply Chain Digital Transformation

Introducing DeSL’s Dynamic Purchasing Platform designed to provide fashion companies of any size the tools to more effectively manage and control purchases of products from initial requisition through to delivery. Dynamic Purchasing Platform is part of the Made for You series of specialized, standalone, or fully integrated modules.

Despite buying merchandise being the largest expense in most organizations, many brands in the fashion sector still control purchasing with outdated ERP software or manually created spreadsheets. These antiquated methods provide little to no visibility of PO progress, with a total reliance on emails to communicate with vendors, and no integration to product specifications or agreed costing processes.

DeSL’s Digital Purchase Order enables the further expansion of digital transformation by fashion companies globally. With real-time workflow driven integration to existing ERP systems and logistic providers, Dynamic Purchasing Platform offers powerful functions including progress tracking, centralized communication, tightly coupled product specifications and full visibility to buying budgets, cash flow projections, and planned costs.

Dynamic Purchasing Platform module delivers a complete end-to-end tool for managing suppliers and covers all activities in the procurement processes. The cloud-based platform gives users access to a real-time, web-based overview of the supply chain incorporating suppliers, vendors, and mills.

Dynamic Purchasing Platform joins DeSL’s other Made for You series of modules covering all key business processes starting at product concept and reaching through to final sale and delivery.
