eBIZ 4.0

Moving forward with digital data exchange, traceability, fight against counterfeiting and more


What is eBIZ 4.0?

eBIZ 4.0 is a new action aiming to digitally connect at least 100 fashion companies across Europe. This action will deliver IT solutions combining the benefits of the eBIZ digital language with RFID or NFC technologies.

Thanks to this combination, the eBIZ 4.0 solution will enable SMEs to increase the traceability of products, improve the time to market and warehouse management and to reduce data exchange barriers with external providers by shortening the distances along the supply chain.


What are the objectives? 

The use of eBIZ 4.0 would digitise the industry by providing reliable and real-time data connections to companies in their network in addition to help setting up voluntary traceability, fighting against counterfeiting and unauthorised distribution channels. It will be achievable by reducing the distance at each step of the supply chain with the integration of information flows among different departments (through RFIds) and companies (through eBIZ and RFIDs).

The goal is to bring benefits to SMEs of IT tools mostly used in large fashion businesses to significantly improve their processes management and their connection with suppliers and customers.

-         CLAVE INFORMATICA, IT solution provider in Spain
