The 4 Points to Ensure Success for Fashion, Apparel, and Sporting Goods Brands in 2024
As we step into a new era, the dynamics of the fashion, apparel, and sporting goods industry are evolving rapidly. To navigate this landscape successfully in 2024, brands and their distributors must be proactive in adopting innovative strategies. These are four key points that can significantly impact the success of your business in the coming seasons.
1. Line Planning and Assessment
In the modern business landscape, a siloed and non-visual multichannel line planning process can hinder growth. You will have to eliminate unnecessary boundaries between line planners, merchandisers, sales teams, and buyers. This collaborative approach will not only also improve your communication, but it will also result in shortened sales cycles and a more efficient product line.
2. Assorting and Merchandising
Manual and non-visual merchandising processes can slow down the development of collections and hinder buyer segmentation. To overcome this challenge, automate merchandising processes and manage assortments visually and collaboratively. This approach ensures seamless collection development while catering to the specific needs of diverse buyer segments, enhancing the overall efficiency of the brand.
3. Catalog, Sample Virtualization, and Marketing Campaigns
Say goodbye to manual production of print or digital catalogs with limited integration with marketing assets. Opt for an interactive digital catalog that boldly represents your brand each season. Centralize all visual assets, advertising campaigns, tech sheets, and interactive presentations. Additionally, digitally transform your showrooms to eliminate the need for physical samples. Integrate 3D samples to provide an engaging experience for buyers, saving time and resources.
4. Order Collections, Management, and Stock Monitoring
Streamline and facilitate the collection and consolidation of B2B orders by embracing a platform that ensures a seamless transition from showroom to remote order placement. Avoid last-minute minimum order challenges by consolidating orders efficiently. The platform should provide historical data and enable brands to handle complex ordering rules more efficiently, saving time and reducing errors.

A message from our Founder and CEO
Our CEO and Founder, Andre Labaki, reflects on the journey we have been on and looks to the future.
“This year marks a very special year for Trasix as we celebrate our 10th anniversary. When I launched the company in 2012, I believed that the apparel and footwear industry needed a fresh approach to digital transformation. I put together a team of innovative and creative minds to deliver a platform that is now used by the industry leaders to overcome their go-to-market and distribution challenges in a constantly evolving trade environment.
Along our journey, we were able to achieve key milestones – from onboarding our first customer in 2012, to serving over 35 global brands, 28 wholesalers and 6290 daily users around the world: who manage their assortments and collect annual orders in excess of USD 7.3 billion.
All these accomplishments came with great efforts, resulting in Trasix being recognized in the market as a reliable solutions provider, which drives its business through solid expertise and constant innovation.
One thing that has not changed in the last decade is our company values. Every feature we release is led by consistent transparency, reliability, uncompromised security and our mission to help our customers overcome their challenges in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.
Meanwhile, the world has faced exceptionally challenging conditions under COVID-19 related restrictions through 2020 and 2021. The resulting and ongoing headwinds in global fashion doesn’t only point out the digital imperative in the industry, but also confirms the effectiveness of specialist tech platforms on which companies have heavily relied on to remain on track in a pandemic-era.
We are prepared to support fashion businesses and address their specific needs as the shape of the market continues to evolve.
Reflecting on the history of Trasix, I’d like to acknowledge the employees, customers and partners who have helped built a trustworthy, collaborative and business-driven platform that empowers businesses around the world every single day.
We are excited about the opportunities ahead to extend our track record of value creation, innovation and success.
Here’s to another 10 fantastic years. May they be as exciting and rewarding as the first!”

Parul Misra - Under Armour Category Manager – Athlocity
We have been using Trasix services for digital catalog solution for our seasonal sales meetings for over 5 years. Needless to say, very happy with the speed of delivery and accuracy of information. The catalog is easy to navigate and use, with lots of useful features and functionalities. The team is very professional too and pays attention to detail. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Trasix in future.
Kim Brasko - Managing Director - COÉGA Sunwear
We have been using Trasix since 2018 and as an SME it’s the perfect value for money option. The easy to use csv and image upload features allow us to keep our collections organized. The online instruction manual is well written, and the Support Desk has always been quick to step in when needed. The Easy Order downloads to Excel or Power Point is where we have gained the most accuracy and efficiency. After downloading, we can customize and create simple Power Point catalogs, showing a customer their final collection selection quickly, and provide clean Excel order forms to customers without hours of formatting. The images on the Easy Order Excel order forms are the most helpful feature as pre-Trasix we would spend hours copying and pasting to create these, then need someone to review for accuracy. Excel is how most of our customers place orders, a few larger customers do like to use the Trasix software itself, it’s nice to have the flexibility of both.
Emanuel Borg - Operations Manager – Hudson Holdings
Easy setup, user friendly UI, with very useful offline features. Trasix today is an integrated part of our day to day business, supporting both our European & African regions. With a very efficient customer service team, it made it easier for us to support our partners. Trasix proven to be experts in the industry in more than one occasion, always striving to keep up to date with the latest industry standards. Trasix is one of the few vertical solutions that we will be retaining as part of our group target architecture.
Laia Lopez Barnadas - Go To Market Manager – SSS
Trasix Team is working very fast and is well qualified when it comes to data management. Being a pioneer in the region made them stand out from the other options when we were looking for a solution provider. We were able to boost our sales and improve our consolidation with Trasix's platform.
