Announcing Digital Transformation Packages for Small-Medium Businesses

DeSL launches the first cloud-based ‘end-to-end’ Digital Transformation package specifically designed for growing SMBs

Discover e-Solutions (DeSL) launches the first cloud-based ‘end-to-end’ Digital Transformation package specifically designed for growing SMBs.

To survive and thrive in a post COVID-19 era, the fashion sector must drop its reliance on outdated software and manual processes to move rapidly into total Digital Transformation. To meet these requirements, fashion companies must embrace the new opportunities and perform a paradigm shift to go digital from end-to-end. Processes at every step in the supply chain eco-system will be affected in more ways than traditional fashion PLM solutions can manage. Digital workflows that are standardized and automated will enable companies to increase speed and improve efficiencies.

The solution is available in a number of editions each designed to address specific key areas in the overall process:

  • Essentials edition includes PLM, PO Management Ai plug-in & 3D Integration
  • Advanced includes Standard Edition plus Sales/Marketing Management OR Digital Color Approvals
  • Premium includes Standard Edition plus Sales/Marketing Management AND Digital Color Approvals

A number of financial options are available to SMBs to help reduce the impact of prohibitive up-front costs. One option is fast track, remote implementation and setup costs being included in the monthly per user price and spread over the contract term.

Once true Digital Transformation has been achieved, companies can implement these digital processes and apply them to new markets, opportunities, products, differing customer requirements, and easily appoint and work with new vendors/factories with no disruption. SMBs can now take advantage of the technology traditionally not available to companies of their size through DeSL’s cost effective hosted solution and move to a totally digital future. DeSL is committed to supporting grass roots fashion and apparel companies and believes that if SMBs are to have the best chance of survival and unhindered growth, the starting point should be laying down the foundations of a solid Digital Transformation platform from the outset.

ModCloth Partners with DeSL

ModCloth Partners with DeSL for a Complex, Quick, and Completely Remote Implementation

ModCloth

ModCloth takes its next steps towards supply chain transparency with DeSL’s PLM software. Founded in 2002, ModCloth has raised fashion industry standards through size inclusion, anti-photoshopping policies, and female leadership. As ModCloth continues to grow due to its freestanding and new independent ownership, it realized the importance of streamlining the supply chain.

The recently independent company required a flexible, powerful software that can be implemented quickly, in order to replace their current outdated program. When assessing ModCloth’s pain points, DeSL found the overall need for supply chain end-to-end visibility, along with 3D capabilities.

Chris Schreiber, Chief Operating Officer of ModCloth explains, “We chose DeSL due to 1) end-to-end visibility, integrating all functions for robust decisions, 2) flexibility in terms of current and future processes (such as 3D), 3) simplicity of configuration in order to implement and pivot quickly.” She goes on to mention, “The product development process can be cumbersome, but the tools to support it don’t have to be; and in this case, the DeSL PLM tool will definitely reduce complexity.”

Despite the obstacles presented by COVID-19, DeSL and the ModCloth team has worked hard to handle all business processes remotely. DeSL is beyond delighted to begin this partnership with ModCloth. The quick, remote implementation will provide a strong foundation for DeSL and both parties are looking forward to the future of PLM.

Improving enterprise critical paths with remote PLM implementation

DeSL offers remote implementation for all brands globally due to COVID-19. Ultimately saving time, travel fees, and abiding by safety precautions.

 

As employers continue to respond and navigate global lockdowns due to COVID-19, offices are closed and staff are acclimating to working from home. Planned technology projects don’t need to face postponement during these times. Remote implementation can allow organizations to efficiently move forward, even with team leaders working from their homes.

The DeSL team has successfully completed implementation projects remotely without a significant difference from the traditional onsite process. DeSL can securely connect while communicating with critical project leaders because it is cloud-based and remotely accessible. Scheduling important team meetings are often easier to arrange since they no longer must take place in person, and video conferencing provides many of the benefits that traditional face-to-face interactions offer. A remote implementation is also a perfect choice for companies with high security or strict on-site policies.

The move to virtual meetings and remote software connections will generate savings for the project by eliminating normal travel expenses.

DeSL draws on its industry experienced team and expansive global projects to provide a streamlined and efficient implementation process. DeSL’s goal is to get companies seeing results quickly, while being fully supported. To learn more click here to request a demo with a DeSL representative.

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.
