Transforming Outdoor Hard Goods Product Development
High quality, technical performance products that enhance users’ ability to enjoy their activity in ultimate comfort and safety are at the heart of outdoor hard goods and gear brands and retailers.
Challenges to growth include managing complex supply chains, meeting rigorous compliance rules, ensuring sustainable production and reducing errors that affect product quality and drive up costs. The efficient handling of product development data from initial concept and planning to sourcing, manufacturing, quality control and retail is crucial.
