In 2006, eFashionTrack (eFT) was formed as a joint company by Textile Online Marketplaces Limited (TOM) and Sesam Ltd. At this time, the company decided to focus on further development and marketing of supply chain management (SCM) solutions for the garment industry through eFT. Early in that same year, the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) version of the application environment was completed, enabling rapid conversion from .NET to J2EE code for clients using an Oracle database. The company@s mission is to provide Web-enabled solutions to the garment industry, in order to address the quick turnaround requirements of fashion buyers in a highly fragmented global sourcing environment. Headquarters for eFT is located in Cheshire, UK, with a division office in Istanbul, Turkey.
The company eFashionTrack offers its eponymous Web-enabled and customizable workflow solution in the form of a product lifecycle management (PLM) application, with a specific focus on apparel sourcing. The solution has a reconfiguration capacity that allows the application to be adapted to the business processes and the organizational structures of its user companies.
The solution@s modules include Line Planner (for product development, sampling, and pricing/costing), Order Management, Supplier Management, and Compliance. Each module is integrated with a user-configured workflow engine. The company also offers customized implementation support, including online and offline training, to help the client self-manage and maintain the application with a minimum of long-term support from eFashionTrack.
