In addition to flattening the consumer-facing end of the fashion industry, digitization is also shaking up the supply chain. According to integrated technology solutions-provider Lectra, the fourth industrial revolution — or, Industry 4.0 as the company calls it — is well underway, marking opportunities for brands and wholesalers.
“Industry 4.0 will change everything about how fashion brands, retailers and manufacturers work and respond to customer demands,” said Jason Adams, president of Lectra North America, “The companies that begin to embrace digitization and smart manufacturing now will be the ones best-positioned to take advantage of the big business opportunities that come with such profound change.”
