Clary Business Machines

Perhaps no other business sector has been squeezed by the tightening economy like the clothing and apparel industry. Panasonic helped a clothing wholesaler to cut costs and increase business with HD Visual Communications.

Challenge

Ensuring material and production quality requires close, visual inspection to ensure proper texture, color and fi nish. A slight variation in shade or weave can result in a rejected order. Accurately assessing drape, stitch quality and the overall look of a garment prior to production often entails the ineffi cient, lumbering practice of shipping swatches and prototypes back and forth via overseas courier and even worse, onerous, costly international travel.

The degree to which HD video conferencing has allowed clothing companies to save money while shortening the product cycle has been truly revolutionary. We’ve seen our clients dramatically lower costs while maintaining and in some cases enhancing quality-control standards. One of our customers has already leveraged the system to reduce the number of annual trips to their South American factory from twelve to three. And when it comes to video, the Panasonic brand makes it an easy choice compared to competing video technologies.
