The textile supply chain is long and complex, spanning multiple countries and type of companies such as farmers, ginners, traders, spinners, importers, garment manufacturers and retailers. In order to get insight into a supply chain of such complexity itis vital to onboard and assess suppliers, verify their compliance with standards and gather information regarding one segment, line and season in one single place.
ChainPoint has been active in the textile industry for quite some years. With our work for BCI, Textile Exchange, GOTS, Goodweave and others we’ve been supporting the textile and apparel industry from multiple angles. We have now consolidated our years of experience in Textile Trace, a platform designed especially for the textile and apparel industry. This extremely flexible solution will benefit anyone working in the industry.
With Textile Trace you can onboard your suppliers in a very efficient and easy way to the platform. This can be done by simply capturing basic supplier information manually or by interfacing with an existing ERP or other company IT system. Your supplier can then complete and validate information as well as add information for own suppliers.
Once a supplier is registered in the platform, adding certificates for the supplier is easy. Our platform lets you assign certificates for all standards to a supplier, with scope, certificate number and expiry date. Via the platform you can ask your supplier directly for additional certificate information like a scan of the certificate. The supplier then just follows a link in an email to add the required information into the platform. The platform will also automatically notify you when a certificate is about to expire, so you can be sure your suppliers always have valid certificates.
