OPTITEX: Future-proofing the uniform industry through digitalisation

The OPTITEX webinar will educate on how uniform and PPE companies can future-proof growth by digitalising the production chain to become truly sustainable brands.

As the professional clothing industry focuses on its progress to net zero, OPTITEX’s solution offers an efficient workflow that supports sizing and fit predictability, increases productivity, reduces textile waste and mitigates against the supply chain challenges of skill shortages and inflation.

Hosted by OPTITEX’s EMEA Manager, James McDermott, this webinar will also include Customer Success expert, Tamar Kikoria. Kikoria will explore the various tools OPTITEX’s product development solution offers for reducing returns and waste by utilising useful tools, ranging from cross-size simulation and advanced fit analysis tools, to PLM integration and costing.

The PCIAW® and OPTITEX will then take a special look at OPTITEX’s capabilities for military and outdoor clothing, where complex patterns and costly materials are involved.

To inspire your digital process, Giulia Sarno, OPTITEX’s Italy Manager, will share one of OPTITEX’s great customer stories in the uniform domain.
