Before a customer can browse through an assortment of sweaters and decide which one to purchase, that sweater first experiences many touchpoints by different groups, such as the fabric supplier, textile manufacturer, and many more. Fashion is a global industry that requires integration of business processes, such as those performed by the original supplier to manufacturer to fulfillment center to retailer to ultimate end user, often with additional layers in between.
