India’s textile sector is one of the oldest and most vibrant industries in the Indian economy and is a repository and carrier of traditional skills, heritage and culture. Estimated to be worth over $250 billion dollars by 2025, it comprises of the unorganised and organised sectors of the textile industry, from the traditional handloom, handicrafts and sericulture, to the modern spinning, weaving, knitting, processing and garmenting. However, there has always been considerable scope for improvement as the industry faces many challenges, such as low productivity, lack of innovation, poor quality, fragmented supply chain and inadequate infrastructure. This was what led to the establishment of TradeUNO. Our purpose was to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers by providing a curated B2B Marketplace that caters to the entire textile value chain. We leverage supply-chain efficiencies, technology and networks to help SMEs source & sell better.
Our mission is to offer our customers a curated experience, wide selection, and best value through a risk-free, tech-enabled marketplace. We strive to create a win-win situation for both buyers and sellers by ensuring quality, transparency, and trust.
Our vision is to be the force multiplier for the Indian Textile SME sector by providing a marketplace of choice where SMEs can buy and sell online without barriers or restrictions. We aim to empower our customers with the best products and services at the best prices.
Leveraging technology to create a seamless experience
Business digitalisation: Accuracy and trust through technology
We start our journey by digitising over 120+ item properties that have been tailored to the intended usage of each product. These qualities go above and beyond the bare minimum to meet the sophisticated standards of today's discerning businesses.
We tackle every aspect, from wrinkle recovery to biodegradability, UV resistance to breathability. In addition to bringing everything on our web platform, this thorough digitalisation also does away with the necessity for human interface. It gives us the ability to sell products legally, guaranteeing total material and composition transparency and fostering everlasting customer trust.
Implementations that prioritise customer empowerment: Quickness, selection, and visualisations
We have embraced different tech-enabled features that help purchasers to make quick judgements in our effort to increase company speed. Users of our Visual Search feature can use picture search to pick the ideal cloth from a large range.
By automatically showing how the fabric will appear in various designs, including kurtis, tops, maxis, skirts, kaftans, and more, the Fabric Visualisation Tool goes a step further.
Additionally, we have integrated digital printing capabilities into our platform, giving our customers complete control over their options.
Establishing an online ecosystem: Increasing options and empowering designers a universe of possibilities
In addition to our main business operations, we're building a strong digital environment. Designers from prestigious institutes like NIFT/NIFD and many more creative minds are welcome in this ecosystem. It includes social media trend-inspired designs as well as AI-generated designs that make use of Deep AI and Open AI.
Designers add their works to our platform, and we pay them depending on the sales that result from those works.
A technological advancement
For instance, Reliance Retail required over 1,000 new design options in order to increase its daily clothing sales from 20 lakhs to 50 lakhs. TradeUNO rose to the occasion by utilising our community and the strength of OpenAI and DeepAI to produce a wide range of design options at scale.
TradeUNO is a leader in the field of technology-driven innovation. We're not simply staying up; we're leading the way in innovation and creating new standards for the sector.
Solving the unresolved issues of the textile industry
Identifying the Issues
- An unorganised and primitive landscape: The textile sector has, however, long operated in an archaic and disorganised manner despite its size and potential. It is a dispersed environment that is rife with inefficiencies, difficulties, and lost chances.
- Capital restraints and knowledge gaps: SME vendors in this industry are up against formidable odds. They can't invest in crucial areas like sales, marketing, and distribution due to capital limitations and a lack of competence.
- Buyers' limited options and limited resources: On the other hand, buyers are restricted by a lack of resources. It is difficult to navigate 22 textile clusters spread out across the country. They frequently discover that they are constrained to a "Best of 3 quotes" approach, which restricts their options and limits their potential.
Information asymmetries: A roadblock to progress: The textile industry is plagued by a severe information asymmetry. As a result, there are higher costs, fewer options for buyers, bigger lots, and worse capacity utilisation for sellers. There is a clear need for a knowledgeable middleman to close this gap.
The supply chain's simplification
We at TradeUNO have set out to transform the textile industry. We are the knowledgeable middleman that eliminates information asymmetry, simplifies the supply chain, and catapults the textile sector into a new century.
For our extensive clientele comprising over 600 distinguished brands, we consistently achieve remarkable outcomes. We offer our clients an impressive array of choices and tailored solutions, coupled with accessible credit options and unwavering commitment to quality control. All the while, we diligently reduce costs by a substantial margin ranging from 5% to 15%.
Our proven success is evident through our FY23 sales of 100 crores, showcasing a remarkable 186% increase from the previous year. Additionally, our monthly order processing capacity, currently at 15 crores, has the potential to handle even higher volumes due to our increased working capital.
The way ahead: Developing potential by increasing effectiveness
TradeUNO is concerned with the future as well as the present. We are confident in our ability to execute brilliantly and efficiently at a reasonable cost, and we have discovered levers to increase our gross margins.
