Justwin Technologies and Tukatech have formed a global alliance to integrate Justwin's Collaborative Product Commerce (CPC) software solutions into Tukatech's worldwide distribution channel.

The initiative is intended to benefit customers of both companies by reducing costs, accelerating time to market, and improving product and partner collaboration.

"It is our prime objective to reduce the cycle time and cost of manufacturing in the cut and sew industry," says Ram Sareen, CEO, Tukagroup. "It can be done - the automotive industry is a prime example of a global manufacturing scenario, similar to mass customization in apparel but with very little inventory and WIP.

"In apparel, the missing ingredients of information and technology are now available through Justwin products that are truly a great addition to our open systems," he adds.
