Detailed explanation of our services.
Experience and learning from three decades working for well known global brands, retailers, sourcing agents and manufacturers in the Fashion Supply Chain has provided a well rounded view of processes supported by existing and new technologies.
Whether you are an established fashion company assessing your next steps in digital sustainability initiatives, PE considering investment in the fashion industry, or a startup planning entry to the market, we can help you with the insights required to navigate the next steps.
You have defined your strategy, but you need guidance and insights to execute. This is where JBSO Group can help.
The advisory services can range from regular calls and action points as required, to mentoring your team during design of your solution, and many variations between.

This isn't just a compliance requirement. Sustainability initiatives can also bring economic benefits to the bottom line, as well as ecological benefits. JBSO Group can help you to assess process and technology to prioritise sustainability initiatives by SROI.
Converting the analogue Fashion Supply Chain to a flexible Digital Value Chain brings efficiencies and benefits to the bottom line.
However, there is also imminent legisation, requiring transparency and compliance to sustainability targets, adding greater significance to realising a Digital Value Chain.
JBSO Group can guide you through the process and technology options to enable the transparency of your processes and deliver SROI (Sustainability Return on Investment).
Process comes naturally to the JBSO Group. Whether you need to map and understand your current processes before scoping and defining initiatives, or you need assistance in re-engineering processes, we can help.
Mapping can be performed via interviews, or as a group activity with your project team.
The competitive nature of the Fashion Industry has driven the optimisation of many elements of the supply chain. However, as there are hundreds of thousands of activities in a supply chain covering all partner tiers 1 - 6, there are still many areas in the traditional supply chain that, to all intents and purposes, remain 'analogue'. The pressure is mounting to streamline these processes, whether from competitive pressures, or the imminent sustainability legislation in US, EU and UK. The Business Value Assessment identifes areas that could be optimised, the potential ecological and economic benefits, and a clear and concise action plan to execute.
Using a combination of knowledge of supply chain processes, experience of the new & existing technology that supports these processes, and data products built up over many years, JBSO Group can help you to identify strategic opportunities and risks across the Fashion industry markets.
