THE PLUG-AND-PLAY DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN AIMS TO FURTHER SUSTAINABLE AND ON-DEMAND MANUFACTURING
NEW YORK —Venture-backed technology company Nineteenth Amendment announces the launch of N.A.bld (pronounced “enabled”) on NAbld.com. N.A.bld is a production management tool that enables sustainable pre-selling and on-demand quick turn manufacturing for brands. N.A.bld software has been powering the pre-sale marketplace NineteenthAmendment.com for years, enabling inventory-free retailing and making sustainable collaborations with brands like Macy’s, Disney, Microsoft, and Bravo’s Project Runway. Now, through N.A.bld.com, that software is available for brands of all sizes to use as a plug-and-play supply chain to facilitate their own on-demand manufacturing of apparel. Through the N.A.bld platform brands can digitize their tech packs, connect with a network of vetted, USA-based manufacturers to get bids, create automatic purchase orders and bills of materials, visualize per unit and per run costs, and communicate with manufacturers throughout the process. Additionally, brands can choose to include customers in the manufacturing process through automatic updates sent straight from the real-time production timeline. Brands who have used this transparent and connected retailing and manufacturing experience have seen low product return rates on ecommerce apparel products, averaging around 7%.
“Brands from around the world have used Nineteenth Amendment’s software to sell sustainably in pre-sale and with the launch of N.A.bld we hope to give more brands a way to operate in a smart way, without inventory waste, and easily and efficiently work with technology enabled ethical manufacturers. The old process of manufacturing isn’t transparent and setting up a supply chain traditionally takes months and can be very costly. Now, through N.A.bld, brands can set up an entire digital supply chain in as little as an hour.” Said Co-Founder and CEO Amanda Curtis.
