Cambodian garment factories are exploring options to automate and digitise operations in order to grow efficiencies and secure new business, according to fashion tech platform Zilingo, which recently showcased its offering at a conference hosted by the Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC).

Zilingo introduced its proprietary production software which will help Cambodia’s garment factories increase efficiency and reduce defects. Zilingo Production Software allows factories to use real-time production data to produce actionable performance reports that will help factories improve efficiency and productivity.

Zilingo was invited by Kaing Monika, GMAC’s deputy secretary-general, to show how it can harness its smart technology-led solutions to bring factories in Cambodia onboard the digital revolution and maintain their position as major players in the fashion industry.

“In the Industry 4.0 era, we are observing the progressive pace of automation and digitisation across our factories. Automated machines are increasingly being used in most factory processes, including designing, pattern making, cutting, printing, embroidery, sewing and quality control,” said Monika, adding that digitisation is essential across the garment industry. “Cambodia must respond to this challenge of automation and digitisation at a faster pace in order to transform our workplace and workforce.”

The introduction of the software is part of Zilingo’s plans to launch in Cambodia as a key market, with a vision to empower fashion businesses with unprecedented access to a transparent supply chain solution with software, financial services and marketing services.

“As we scale our presence in Cambodia, we look forward to leveraging our platform to bring more Cambodian factories into the digital age while connecting Cambodian sourcing to global fashion brands in the West. The role of technology should be used to create inclusive growth. With Zilingo’s suite of tools and services, fashion businesses will be better equipped to compete in a global marketplace,” said Cian O’Dowd, head of expansion, Zilingo.
