Coats Global Services (CGS), which provides software solutions to apparel and footwear supply chains, yesterday concluded the first edition of a series of events aimed at initiating a discussion on the value of technology for the apparel manufacturing space.
The daylong Apparel Tech Up, taking place in Dhaka on Tuesday and in Chattogram yesterday, received “huge response” from stakeholders of the RMG industry, says a statement.
Top garment makers were present during keynote speeches from international members of the CGS.
In Dhaka, David Berry, director for sales and marketing for GSD, a part of the CGS, talked about the vision of the CGS for the upcoming year. He elaborated on the intent of the CGS to be a complete end-to-end manufacturing supply excellence solution provider.
“We, at CGS, completely understand the power of data and analytics powering manufacturing businesses,” said Anas Shakil, director for manufacturing excellence at ThreadSol, another part of the CGS.
“The focus needs to be on assessing and driving value through data, rather than just accumulating vast oceans of data. We need to create a platform that brings it all together intelligently,” he added.
The event in Dhaka concluded with a panel discussion where Tram Anh Tran, managing director of Coats Bangladesh, was present. The panel discussed the current challenges and opportunities for RMG manufacturers in terms of data.
