Ethical Trading Requirements

CARDIFF, Wales, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
DeSL , a global company delivering integrated web-based solutions for the
Fashion, Apparel, Textile and Footwear sectors, has seen increasing demand for
their solutions which help to address Ethical Trading requirements for fashion
With fashion companies facing increased exposure to a range of social and
ethical issues in the supply chain, DeSL's iPad applications have been
designed specifically to ensure ethical compliance and enable inspection teams
to perform stringent product and quality audits at factory locations. Today,
a number of companies have already embraced the DeSL solution to help manage
their Ethical Trading process. Most recently in January 2013, A. H Schreiber,
one of the largest swimwear manufacturers in the United States, selected DeSL
solutions to help manage their supplier relationship process.
The DeSL application enables clothing companies and fashion brands to fulfil
this due diligence in the most thorough yet simple way, preventing the
likelihood of negative publicity as a result of potential negligence in social
and ethical management, such as health and safety issues. The solution is
built around the concept of close collaboration between vendor and company,
sharing required information and processes via the Internet. Many vendors are
located remotely from the company they are supplying, in different time zones,
so a real-time, web-based solution is the ideal solution.
Colin Marks, CEO, DeSL, commented, "All processes from start to finish are
managed by the application using a real-time, web-based solution, backed up by
iPad/Android, off line, synchronised apps. Many factory locations do not have
good Internet access; using this technology enables work to be completed
off-line at the factory, then simply backed up to the system when Internet
becomes accessible. Our solution is extremely functionally rich, incorporating
inspection requirements management, critical path tracking and performance
Colin continued, "The beginning of 2013 has already seen a number of Ethical
Trading issues hit the headlines. The consequences of poor Ethical Trading
processes are enormous; often a company will genuinely think they have all the
boxes ticked, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. We would
ask any fashion company that has a desire to strengthen its Ethical Trading
process to contact us now to see how we can help."
