Accenture has signed an agreement to help Brandix, the leading apparel manufacturer in Sri Lanka, transform its manufacturing, supply chain, finance and human resources operations to set the stage for the company’s digital future.

Under the terms of the agreement, Accenture will help Brandix develop innovative solutions that focus on process excellence, productivity improvement, data-driven analytics and the internet of things – all while driving end-to-end integrated solutions. 

“I’m confident that this collaboration will help us achieve new avenues of growth not only in Sri Lanka but at the global scale,” said Brandix Group Chief Executive Officer Ashroff Omar. “This is in line with our overall strategic decision to develop the apparel ecosystem and create a future-ready, global organisation for the digital era.”

Together, we will work toward significantly enhancing the company’s top-line growth and bottom-line savings in the next six years.”

To create value in this highly competitive environment, apparel manufacturers need to embed technology-led innovation not only at the edges of systems but also within their core processes.”

In today’s digital era, we aim to drive innovation, growth and digitisation for Brandix by building a sustainable and efficient operating model.”
