Today, our commercial director, Ben Balfour, and our business and client development director, Caroline Ellis, are heading to London to take part in a roundtable discussion hosted by leading fashion industry magazine, Drapers.

They will be joined at The Ivy by a handpicked group of industry experts to discuss the latest supply chain technology and emerging innovations being employed by retailers within the fashion industry.

At ASCG, we work closely with our retail clients to design innovative, bespoke solutions that speed up and streamline processes and remove complexity from the supply chain. We help to reduce costs and increase speed, helping retailers to provide consumers with a great experience from start to finish.

We’re delighted to be asked to share our insights and innovations with Drapers. Open discussions such as this provide a valuable opportunity to promote best practice across the industry.

As the retail sector both tackles challenges and takes stock of new opportunities, it’s important that the industry remains committed to driving innovation, keeping pace with the huge strides being made in e-commerce. Collaboration is vital and we hope that in sharing our insights, others will benefit.

A write up of the roundtable discussion will be published by Drapers on 27th April 2018.
