Product lifecycle management systems allow apparel and fashion companies to effectively organise and bring together the key information, actions and personnel associated with the entire lifecycle of a product into a single collaborative platform.

Apparel brands, retailers and manufacturing partners are increasingly adopting and integrating innovative digital technologies across the entire value chain, from product planning, design and development to order execution and selling, to enhance operational efficiency and remain agile, relevant and successful in the business.

As e-commerce sales have increased following the Covid-19 outbreak, retailers face increasing pressure to bring customers back to their brick-and-mortar stores. More than ever, customers now favour experiences over products. Retailers have been implementing artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance customer experiences and improve operational efficiency.

Cloud computing allows apparel companies to minimise their upfront infrastructure spending, enabling them to focus on other critical aspects such as designing, manufacturing, and marketing.

Since the pandemic, more retailers than ever are creating online platforms and providing omnichannel experiences. To do this, they are incorporating key technologies into their business strategies such as cloud, artificial intelligence, big data analytics (BDA), and the Internet of Things (IoT). Including these technologies in their businesses comes with significant cybersecurity risk.

Following the Covid-19 outbreak, many retailers used the Internet of Things (IoT) to capitalise on the shift to online shopping. The pandemic accelerated the rollout of interactive web pages, apps, and new creative product launches to maintain customer interest and improve retention.

The use of robotics in retail has gradually expanded from being predominantly used in logistics and supply chains to being used in-store to help converge online and offline retail.
