Justwin Technologies, the provider of an Internet based supply chain management solution for the apparel and textile industries, has opened a new office in New York and announced that it is to support outsourced hosting of its core eProcess solution.

The moves reflect strong growth in the company's staff and customer base, coupled with industry demand for solutions to help manage the increasingly complex issues of creating accurate documentation and managing standard business processes.

Commenting on its service extension, Geoff Benstead, COO said: "With the growing acceptance of Application Service Providers (ASPs) and companies becoming more willing to outsource hosting of business solutions, we felt the time was right to announce our latest offering."

He added that this completes Justwin's two-tiered approach to offering ASP services, the first step of which was the launch of Justwin Connect for small to medium sized companies. By adding hosting support for the e-Process solution, users can now focus on their core competencies, "eliminating the need for adding to what may already be a technically complex back office with the technical expertise required to manage it."

Using Justwin Apparel can help businesses better manage standard processes, product specification sheets, and communicate more effectively. Communication with both internal users and external suppliers is critical as revisions occur during product development. Failure to keep current with these revisions can result in fines from retailers, wasted materials and unhappy customers.

"More and more companies are searching for ways to communicate better with their customers and suppliers," said Jon Perrin, vice president of sales and marketing. "At the same time, they are searching for tools to help ensure they deliver a quality product on time within the profit margin they expect. Unfortunately, technology issues frequently get in the way. This new offer provides a way for our current and future customers to continue focusing on the most critical components of their business."
