The acquisition of nCinga will drive the adoption of the manufacturing execution system (MES) software across Zilingo’s global network of 6,000 factories and 75,000 businesses, enabling access to previously untapped markets. An addition to Zilingo’s technology stack, the MES software automates operations on the factory floor by enabling access to real-time data on the go.
Fashion is an over $3 trillion industry, in which a majority of retailers struggle with meeting consumer demand for fast, on-trend and responsibly produced products due to inefficiencies and information asymmetry. To address this, Zilingo
said it has created a full-stack technology platform that makes the supply chain fair, transparent and connected. The acquisition will bring added features to the company’s customers in the US, Europe and Australia, where brands traditionally lack transparency over supply chain and manufacturing processes.
Zilingo also plans to leverage its global manufacturer network to increase distribution of the software- specifically for core fashion manufacturing markets such as Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Turkey.
“We at nCinga are very inspired by Zilingo’s vision. Both the teams align on shared values and a global ambition to make the fashion and apparel industry fair, transparent and efficient," said Imal Kalutotage,CEO, nCinga Innovations.
