Discover e-Solutions (DeSL) has launched the first cloud-based ‘end-to-end’ digital transformation package specifically designed for growing SMBs. DeSL is a provider of PLM and integrated web-based solutions for the fashion, apparel, textile, and footwear sectors. DeSL software can accommodate the demands of businesses of all sizes, SMB to enterprise.
To survive and thrive in a post COVID-19 era, the fashion sector must drop its reliance on outdated software and manual processes to move rapidly into total digital transformation.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 standardised 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. The Essentials edition includes PLM, PO management Ai plug-in, and 3D integration. The Advanced edition includes Standard edition plus sales/marketing management or digital colour approvals. The Premium edition includes Standard edition plus sales/marketing management and digital colour approvals, according to DeSL.
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.
