The success of a fashion collection or home fabric range is not only judged by current trends but also by prescribed functional parameters that need to be analysed. Fabrics need to endure a whole range of conditions that affect how they wear. Charles Parsons had several difficulties with managing their internal fabric testing processes which was affecting their communication across the business and productivity levels.


Aerion developed a solution which is a process driven web application that manages and tracks internal fabric testing data. This web application provides the Charles Parsons lab with the ability to manage their fabric testing infrastructure and allows all key stakeholders’ real-time access to test results.


  • Lab Staff and Requesters can view and track the progress of their test requests
  • Requesters are notified of status updates via email alerts
  • Can add additional requirements during the process all through one portal
  • Increased efficiency within the business
