Video transcript: Hey, it’s great to see you here! I’m Emma at natific. You are probably watching this because you are curious about natific. I made a short video to give you an overview of how we can help you create an ultrafast colorful supply chain. I hope this video will make it easy for you to reach out to us at natific, with whatever questions you might have. So, what can your color process look like in the future? Imagine that…
A designer is walking down the street, or visiting a fabric fair… when he or she sees the perfect color for the next season. Luckily, you can capture any color and then store, modify, match and share it by using natific’s app, and using the web-based system ColorBuckets.
Now, the design team has the color palette ready for the season. The decisions that you make at this stage will have a significant effect on lead time and money spent. You can make efficient and sustainable decisions by checking your color’s feasibility on selected shades and fibers, using natific’s Voodoo system. Are you worried about your color coordination, restricted substances and fastness issues? No need, they are taken into consideration as well.
When you know that you have feasible colors for your selected shades, an optimized reflectance curve will be developed and used as your digital color standard. This way, your suppliers can get the color right the first time, and the digital color standard can be used to meet your color requirements again and again.
With a feasible digital color standard, it will only take seconds for your supply chain to receive your color request in natific’s web-based system ASAP. You can send all of your color, print- and pattern requests through ASAP. You can also; communicate, make your color assessments both digitally and visually, approve or cancel your colors, and track the performance.
We have noticed that personnel who handle color processes and color communication often lack crucial knowledge and understanding. It’s important to educate designers and retail personnel to meet the need of the designer and the timing, accuracy, and precision of the sourcing team.
It’s equally important that your suppliers are well trained. natific’s Color Accreditation Program trains your suppliers with the goal of eliminating the need for lab dips and first production submits. Imagine what that would mean for you! Training is the new inspection.
Now, imagine that your colors are in production. This is the time when you need real-time transparency in your supply chain. Our web-based system, the ColorWarehouse, enables you as a retailer to see the shade continuity from batch-to-batch and to compare shades from different suppliers. How about getting real-time notifications for batches that are out-of-tolerance? And to be able to act on them from any of your devices, wherever you are? That is possible too! And, garment manufacturers can connect to the ColorWarehouse Network to see their fabric supplier’s production status and color quality results in real-time.
Your main focus should be to move forward, but that’s not always what happens, right? What you want is ultrafast and meaningful statistics to support your color coordination in store and improvements for the coming season.
So we have talked about color quality solutions that will create a fast, accurate and precise color process throughout your supply chain, from the design phase to the end-customer. To make your life even more simple and joyful, we have connected natific’s technologies and services and created the Color Lifecycle Management. This means that you can manage the complete lifecycle of a color within one flow. It is done by interlinking the retailers existing PLM system with natific’s Color Lifecycle Management.
If you aren’t ready for the complete connection yet, your supply chain can still benefit greatly from any of our single services too. And if you wish, you add one service at the time, at a pace that suits you and your supply chain. Because everyone in the retail supply chain benefits by transitioning from being color reactive to proactive and predictive.
That’s it! Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more.
