24/10/2019 – Digital color matching also benefits the environment — auf Deutsch lesen
natific at the Performance Days trade fair
As digitalization advances and new technologies emerge, the product development process is becoming more and more sustainable.
Color matching is the only step that is often still a manual, time consuming process. Digital solutions offer tremendous optimization potential, with high 1st-Hit-Ratios that reduce production lead times by up to 6 weeks. In addition, CO2 emissions can be significantly reduced because digitalization helps to match colors more accurately and precisely, rendering post-production color adjustments obsolete. It also eliminates the need to ship physical lap dips and production strike-offs by costly couriers. natific will be providing more information on its color solutions at the Performance Days trade fair at Messe München, Hall C1, Booth Q 20.
Christoph Bergmann, Senior Partner of Switzerland-based natific AG:
“There are very clear advantages: In addition to greater sustainability and shorter production times, it is the uniform color values within a collection that speak most in favor of switching to digital color matching. But it does require everyone in the entire supply chain to rethink their practices.”
Once companies decide to digitalize their color matching processes, natific offers them not only expert software solutions, but also extensive support and training for the transition. Today, 9 of the top 20 US-based brands work with natific systems. Three of the world’s largest sportswear suppliers — namely adidas, Nike and Under Armour — are among natific’s customers. natific’s portfolio of product and services will be showcased at the Performance Days event on November 13 and 14 in Hall C.1, Booth Q 20. Christoph Bergmann will be giving in-depth presentations of the natific systems (ColorWarehouse, ASAP and WhiteWarehouse) and services, using a number of real-life case studies.
