Globalization, delocalized production, backward traceability, and multidimensional item complexities are nothing new in the textile industry. Maintaining effective communications, visibility, and control over sourcing and operational platforms that transform fibers into finished goods is a must for enhancing profitability and building a competitive advantage. With most operations outsourced to China, Pakistan, or other opportunistic countries, some specialty coated and medical textile manufacturing may still reside in the United States, and sophisticated traceability of the whole supply chain is essential. You can have it all with a combined ERP + CRM solution from Microsoft, with industry solutions from Sunrise.
