Managing your textile Supply Chain: making the right decisions at the right time!

Supply chain - e-SCM

Long considered a necessary evil, the Supply Chain has become the crucial link for companies to satisfy their customers and optimize their supply costs . In fact, the numerous studies on the challenges of the latter systematically highlight the need for anticipation of stakeholders in the face of the hazards encountered. Changes in availability dates or prices, quality defects, production delays or shortages of raw materials are all reasons why the initial objectives are not met.

The key elements of real-time Supply Chain management

In the textile industry, the Supply Chain is a complex process to organize and manage because it involves several varied actors, in different time zones and over relatively long periods. Real-time Supply Chain management makes it possible to streamline the organization and management of supplies.

It is based both on an organization and on collaborative tools capable of involving each actor in the supply chain. Maximum efficiency is obtained when each person is informed in real time without even having requested precisely the information that is useful to them and which allows them to react and adapt.

The implementation of a Supply Chain Management is based on 2 postulates:

  • Seizure at the source of the information, that is to say directly by its holder. The challenge is to avoid fishing for information and redundant data entry.
  • The provision of a useful service in return for entering information to encourage stakeholders to contribute.

e-SCM, a collaborative operational management tool 

With more than 16 years of experience in the field to support our fashion and luxury clients in their management of outsourced supplies, e-SCM now offers integrated management tools to manage and supervise this activity. Through simple, customizable and intuitive dashboards, the supplier now has a control “cockpit” to observe, measure and act on its supplies. In real time, he will be able to notice production problems and thus contact his supplier to understand what is happening and, if necessary, to remedy this problem. In the same way, he will have tools to ensure that all of his quality controls are carried out on time and in fact will be able to intervene with his interlocutors to take the necessary measures to respect their specifications .

The supplier no longer acts in reaction but becomes an actor in Supply by setting the pace which will allow the company to deliver to its customers on time. It now focuses on high value-added tasks that are real performance levers.


At the same time, other actors in the chain will also have information allowing them to act accordingly to achieve their objectives. Of course, these indicators are dedicated to them and correspond to their needs. For example, a supplier has not received the raw material to begin production: he is alerted from his home page and can contact the ordering party.

The e-SCM solution has established itself today as a reference solution for supply management. The feedback from our customers proves it!



e-SCM, thanks to its complete range of customizable tools and its ergonomics, gives different users the opportunity to make the right decisions at the right time. Increased visibility at all stages offers more flexibility and makes this key stage a vector of success for the company.
