TextileGenesis™, a Lectra Group company, announced the launch of version 2.0 of its SaaS platform which allows brands and manufacturers to digitally map their textiles, from fiber to consumer, to ensure the authenticity and traceability of all materials and garments.

The 2.0 version offers new features, including risk management, a traceability engine based on more than 300 supply transformation steps and a platform with real-time integration with more than 90% of major material certification standards.

To support the industry, comply with increasingly stringent global transparency regulations and enhance the overall user experience for fashion brands and textile suppliers, TextileGenesis has introduced the following new features:

  • A risk and compliance management module that automatically tracks and flags the global supply chain risks from publicly available databases (such as the UFLPA entity watch list). The system captures and flags the risks across the entire value chain from tiers 1 to 4.
  • The traceability engine ensures that every transaction in the system reflects real-world complexity with close to 300 supply chain transformation steps.
  • The consolidation of all major material certification schemes on a single unified platform that allows third-party verification through certification bodies. The third-party sustainability certification schemes and independent verification are a key requirement for the newly enacted European law banning greenwashing to ensure that product sustainability claims are authentic and verifiable.
  • Material-origin verification (for tier 4 and tier 5 suppliers) for all material value chains from recycled polyester, organic cotton and man-made cellulosic to responsible animal fibers.
  • Standardized and automated data exchange with fashion brands and textile suppliers through API and SFTP protocol.

Overall, the platform’s user dashboard and intuitive interface have been enhanced and more data integrity checks have been conducted to ensure a reliable and scalable traceability platform. Currently, more than 8,000 supply chain roles from more than 70 countries are using the platform to enable their supply chains to become more traceable.
