Fashion companies are still finding themselves with months' worth of overstocked inventories, which has resulted from rapidly shrinking consumer demands leaving them with excess stock, demand forecast inaccuracies, and lower quality products.

By manufacturing in limited volumes, fashion companies can easily avoid overstocking their inventories and reduce waste while offering capsule series, limited editions, in-season replenishment, and personalization to their consumers.

Join us in LA as we learn how producing On Demand can:

  • Allow you to go from order to cutting within minutes
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Streamline how you manage orders and configure workflows with production rules you can change at any time
  • And so much more!
