    "Apparel retailers, brands and suppliers face risk at every turn in
today's complex global supply chains," said Cavano. "A growing number of
companies are doing business with partners outside of their traditional
comfort zones. Economic and political risk, rising fuel and labor costs,
rapidly changing consumer tastes, and growing complexities to fulfill
demand profitably are just a few of the complicating factors. Agility and
visibility are essential to mitigating risk when dealing with customers,
factories, financial institutions and other key parties in different
languages and time zones. Cloud technology, combined with local expertise
and presence wherever you do business, can keep you one step ahead."
