Perfectly styled from A to Z.

NOW ERP covers all of your processes.

The requirements in the textile sector are as varied and versatile as the processes, partners and materials involved in production.

Therefore, only software that recognizes these unique characteristics and works with them can be a useful tool for the textile industry and production area.

With NOW, we offer you a solution that considers all important aspects that distinguish it from other manufacturing industries.

During the production of textiles, work processes branch out and find their way later, for example after the refinement, again together.

The complex manufacturing process must be guaranteed at all times, that all production parameters, from the spinning mill to the finished end product, are adhered to.

The time span from the production of the raw material to the completion and delivery of the goods is above average in the textile industry.

For this reason, it is indispensable to have a tool at hand that enables reliable inventory management and thus reliable forecasts.

In order to design the production process as efficiently as possible, it is necessary to coordinate the different machine cycle times.

In this way, waiting times can be significantly shortened and buffer inventories can be optimized.

Quantity, kilogram or cubic meter – in order to get an optimal overview of the exact stock level, it is important to be able to store an article in different units in the system.

This is especially important when processing natural raw materials such as cotton or down.

Order entry, production and ordering in the textile industry are not possible without a matrix.

The large variety of colours and sizes available for a single model, as well as the seasonal and collection-related structures, require special management.

The proven modular approach.
