What are Specialized Textile Quality Management Solutions?
In our previous blog titled Specialized Textile Quality Provider vs. Generalist, we explored the difference between specialized apparel quality providers and generalists and concluded why specialists offer you the most value. Would you want to work with an all-around quality agent who knows a bit of everything, or with an expert who is equipped with the right strengths and tools to meet your quality needs? Your answer will vary depending on your brand’s particular needs, but the value specialists provide can’t be ignored.
Specialized apparel quality management solutions are services which are offered by specialist quality providers who have many years of experience and knowledge in the apparel industry. They provide specialized services which are required in the apparel industry, such as quality control, textile laboratory testing, textile inspections, QMS & CSR audits and more. Many brands may already have an in-house quality manager or quality management team, but often lack the skills, equipment, and money needed to conduct these types of quality services.
Additionally, quality specialists have the expertise and skills needed when it comes to testing techniques, modern technology, applications or tools which are required for quality management in the fashion industry. Specialist quality providers work with a team of highly skilled professionals who can help you grow your brand by providing you with cross-training, support, knowledge, and sharing of experience.
Further benefits of working with textile specialists are:
- All work processes are streamlined as specialists have many years of experience
- They are experts in quality management solutions
- They ensure high-quality products which guarantee competitive advantage over other brands
- They know the industry inside and out which certifies that your brand meets the industry’s quality standards
- Specialists define the best quality management model according to your brand’s product categories and constraints
- Specialists help identify any potential risks regarding regulatory compliance and detect non-performance through laboratory testing
- They help identify any defects or major causes of non-compliance or quality problems during the development stages of production which helps reduce costs and saves time
What about the costs?
Now that you understand the value in specialized apparel quality solutions, you’re probably wondering whether the costs of working with specialists will cause you to break the bank. Fortunately, this isn’t the case!
The true value of specialized textile quality solutions lies in its cost effectiveness. Unfortunately, many quality managers are under the impression that implementing quality management systems within their supply chain will cost more and as a result skimps on quality in an attempt to keep manufacturing costs low. Moreover, some quality managers believe that outsourcing their quality management will cost more than doing it internally.
What many don’t realize is that there are many hidden costs involved with internal quality management. If you don’t believe us, follow this link to find out more.
