Couple Wearing Smart Shoes

Today's business environment demands a continuous flow of new ideas with a greater focus on product quality, functionality performance, durability and sustainability. At SGS we understand the pressures put on footwear and leather product manufactures and brands and so have developed five pillars of quality assurance that we call 'FOOTS'. The Footwear Operational Optimization Technical Service (FOOTS) system proactively identifies root causes to problems and implements solutions.

Background

Even before the pandemic, the consumer industry had its challenges, with businesses throughout the supply chain working hard to gain trust from their customers. As travel restrictions continue, remote services offer a convenient way to continue supporting businesses in their plight to deliver high quality, safe and sustainable products. The SGS FOOTS program offers the detail needed to achieve trust – from chemical management to the use of sustainable materials, technical factory assessments, and factory capability and capacity. Our webinar will explain how SGS can help, not only through these difficult times, but also in the future, as sourcing plans are adapted.

Agenda

The one hour webinar will include details on:

  • Technical factory assessments
  • Production readiness checking
  • Onsite and during production controls
  • Final random inspections
  • Warehouse risk management

The session will end with a Q&A with our expert.

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is aimed at manufacturers and brands in the footwear and leather industry.
