Segura has joined forces with quality control service provider AsiaInspection to help retailers around the world monitor and manage their global supply chains.
With 600 inspectors and auditors on the ground, AsiaInspection partners with brands, retailers and importers to provide supplier audit programs, product inspections and lab testing in 68 countries across all types of production facilities. Segura will work with AsiaInspection to integrate their two complementary software platforms, and give apparel retailers and manufacturers a seamless user experience that ensures their supply chains are ethically compliant.
Audit suppliers in days, not weeks
Factory audits can take upwards of six to seven weeks to complete, meaning that fast fashion retailers often struggle to properly check their suppliers while keeping to tight production deadlines. However, AsiaInspection can arrive on-site within 48 hours of an order being placed online, and issue a detailed report for product inspections the day that the service is performed.
Improve visibility over your supply chain
AsiaInspection services help brands and retailers guarantee supply chain compliance, and bring visibility and insights on suppliers’ portfolios. Inspectors and Auditors gather data from within factories that is made available and digested to provide buyers with KPIs and benchmarking on their sourcing performance.
The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified, CNAS accredited, AQSIQ licensed and a member of the Sedex Associate Audit Group (AAG), a non-profit organisation driving ethical improvements in global supply chains.
AsiaInspection and Segura Collaboration
The collaboration between Segura and AsiaInspection brings together two cutting edge technology infrastructures to ensure that supply chain auditing and tracking has never been easier or more mobile. AsiaInspection factory audits can be requested and monitored at a click of a button through the Segura platform, with status updates and email notifications keeping manufacturers informed at every step of the process. This service partnership enables fashion brands to build a personalised database of approved suppliers, which can then be monitored throughout all future production processes.
AsiaInspection and Segura both utilise cloud-based mobile-friendly technology, allowing clients to manage their account, access reports and schedule quality checks wherever and whenever they need to.
