Efficiency, Creativity and Speed for Fashion Footwear

Footwear companies need to maintain growth targets and accurately read the consumer while handling cost and supply chain ambiguity, managing large volumes of data and creating new styles and innovations. Longer lead times mean that line planning, merchandising and product development have to be completed far earlier than for soft goods.
