If you are a clothing business in SA, you can't afford to be without Sync, the complete ERP software solution for the apparel industry. To make it even more affordable, you can now apply for a government grant to subsidise your Sync implementation, under the new Clothing and Textiles Competitiveness Programme (CTCP).
The clothing and textile industries, two of the most labour-intensive industries in SA, have been under enormous pressure over recent years and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has implemented measures aimed at addressing its decline. As a result, the CTCP has been introduced.
A component of this is the Clothing and Textiles Competitiveness Improvement Programme (CTCIP), initiated and aimed at stimulating the competitiveness of the South African clothing and textile manufacturing sector, ultimately ensuring a sustainable environment that will retain and grow employment levels.
The CTCIP is available to individual companies or clusters, and iSync Solutions' Apparel software system, Sync, qualifies for this grant based on it being designed to promote and support 'world class manufacturing'. For individual companies, the incentive scheme provides support to both local and foreign owned entities by offering a cost-sharing grant incentive of 75% of project cost on cluster projects and 65% of project cost for company-level projects.
With this grant available (until the end of March 2014), there is no reason for your business to be operating without Sync.
