For fashion brands, effective sample management is key to improving workflow and ultimately increasing profits. To maintain a smooth process at all stages of a sample's journey, we recommend leveraging digital tools to track items, reduce product losses as well as operating costs, gain insights, and boost press opportunities to maximize sales. 

Keeping sustainability at top of mind is also vital for reducing negative environmental impacts as well as standing with consumers who know how unsustainable the industry can be.
