Need to speed up collection development but fragmented information and chaotic workflows are causing delays? Exchanging spreadsheets with global suppliers generates misunderstandings around the product? Merchandise Planning and the creative perspectives are reconciled too late in the process producing a lot of rework, sampling proliferation and ultimately high product development costs?
