ICICI Infotech Inc has launched a new Product Tracking solution to help apparel firms monitor each stage of the global supply chain from development to shipment and delivery.

Information is supplied in real time, and has been designed to reduce costs and production cycle times.

Also new is a scanning and packing module. Factories apply industry-standard UCC128 labels to shipping cartons, scan the labels with a handheld scanner, and generate an online packing list for real-time access.

Real-time visibility also allows for pre-allocation of in-bound shipments before they arrive in the warehouse.

Said Vincent Candela, vice president of fashion technology at ICICI Infotech: "While our solutions manage production and development through the entire supply chain, they are also very visual to suit our end users within fashion, for increased usability and productivity."
