Unite material management and digital color approvals

We all know that color is a very important part of the decision making process made by consumers when selecting fashion products. Why leave the selection and approval of product colors open to human error, when it can be a key part of a holistic digital transformation process?

DeSL is the only company with a full raw materials development and management solution with scientific color management and integrated to the widest range of color measurement devices and digital/sublimation printers. The solution not only covers all aspects of raw materials management such as full physical, chemical, and compliance testing, but also uniquely extends into scientific color evaluations. All aspects of the material development processes are managed in a cloud-based solution which unifies the entire supply chain, from initial development right through to final production.

Reduce need for physical samples

The system delivers real-time, digital lab dip/strike-off requests to mills and partners. This will include full scientific color requirements to enable online digital color approvals and vastly reduce the number of physical samples required. All relevant parties can access this key data and enable the real-time quality assurance to ensure that the colors delivered are those that were requested.

This is a huge opportunity to vastly reduce the costs of color and slash the timescales currently taken to approve product color across all vendors, irrespective of location. All key events are measured to enable the creation of KPI’s and the solution’s intelligence even delivers the ability to advise which colors will work on which substrates with which vendors.

All aspects of raw materials development and production are now available on a real-time cloud-based solution which will deliver the ultimate goal of Material Digital Approvals.

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The traditional approach to color management has become outdated, open to error and time and money consuming.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.
