ThreadSol has a range of innovative software solutions for apparel manufacturers. The aim is to cut fabric waste for garment manufacturers. Fabric accounts for about 70 per cent of the operational cost of garment manufacturing units, where the average amount of waste can vary from eight per cent to as high as 16 per cent, largely because the length and width of cloth varies across mills.
ThreadSol helps garment manufacturers cut down fabric waste right from the purchase of the fabric to getting the garment ready. So a semi-literate worker at a factory can punch in basic details like sizes of garments to be made, length and width of fabric to be used and can get suggestions in terms of the most economical ways to make use of the fabric.
ThreadSol offers the solution both as a cloud-based software as a service where companies pay per use or an on-premise solution for which companies pay a license fee. The larger idea is to expand use of the software across similar industry segments like footwear, upholstery, technical textiles and bags. The company, based in New Delhi, is participating in the Garment Technology Expo 2017, New Delhi, March 3 to 6, 2017.
