Our client is on a mission to transform the cotton industry for good. The organization is working with brands and retailers to enable them to develop a more robust and resilient cotton supply chain and establish a traceability for better cotton.
The traceability of cotton, starting from the farmers, through many different processors to the brand and retailers is a biggest challenge keeping in mind complex Cotton to Garment supply chain.
After analysing the challenge, we designed a solution keeping FarmERP at core as a smart ERP platform where client will be able to connect brands and retailers to the farmer. This system keeps track of every single transaction of cotton moving through entire supply chain. Entire chain comprising of Farmer-Ginner- Spinner-Weaver- Dyer-Garment is mapped in FarmERP and every transaction is captured in detail.
Android Mobile application is used to collect the information at farmer level located at remote areas and synchronize all the data to centralized server. This comprehensive solution gives project officers and Brand mangers an extra visibility towards data in order to take faster decisions.
This solution has saved considerable costs for the client minimizing the gaps between cotton supply and market demand. Manging the inventory, monitoring the cotton to garment process and establishing a traceability for Better Cotton Initiative are inherent benefits of this system. It also helped the client to support farmer to enhance livelihood by creating opportunities under socio economic development.
