"Apparel retailers, brands and suppliers face risk at every turn in today's complex global supply chains," said Cavano. "A growing number of companies are doing business with partners outside of their traditional comfort zones. Economic and political risk, rising fuel and labor costs, rapidly changing consumer tastes, and growing complexities to fulfill demand profitably are just a few of the complicating factors. Agility and visibility are essential to mitigating risk when dealing with customers, factories, financial institutions and other key parties in different languages and time zones. Cloud technology, combined with local expertise and presence wherever you do business, can keep you one step ahead."
