Worn Again Technologies becomes founding partner in the new Global Partner Network launched by EON – Bring your products Online.
We strongly believe collaboration is at the core of enabling circular economy and we are delighted to join as founding partner another valuable initiative which brings together leading circular partners across textile and apparel industry.
Eon has launched Global Partner Network which will unlock the fashion industry’s vision of a circular economy at scale by enabling brands and retailers to manage, direct and track the flow of garments across the value chain by connecting with those products using Eon’s Internet of Things platform.
Eon’s Internet of Things platform powered by Microsoft Azure transforms the concept of a “Digital Passport” for physical products into viable reality by using the CircularIDTM Protocol and creating a digital system of record for products across their lifecycle, giving brands unprecedented visibility into the journey and value of their products over time plus a transformational system for tracking and communicating with those products.
The Eon Partner Network will enable brands digitizing products on the Eon platform to provide participating circular business partners with instant access to connected product data crucial for enacting circular processes like re-commerce and recycling. With Partner Accounts on the Eon Platform and accompanying devices for product scanning (RFID, NFC, QR code), these network partners will have the ability to immediately digitally identify and authenticate products that are connected on the platform and to drive their circular practices by accessing deep beyond-the-label data such as original sale price, images, key features and material content.
Joining as founding partners, together with us, this industry’s first Global Partner Network are other leading circular businesses: The Renewal Workshop, Trove, Reflaunt, Lenzing, Hallotex, Recurate, Optoro, Evrnu, Save Your Wardrobe along with Salvation Army Trading Company and Waste Management.
Additionally, network partners will have the ability to contribute to the ongoing enrichment of products’ digital passports by tying metadata to product lifecycle events (location, resale price and channel etc.), creating a continuous picture of a garment’s value in real-time and powering the re-monetization of a single product across multiple lifecycles.
“Making a circular system economically and operationally viable for the fashion industry hinges on the brands’ ability to communicate with their circular business partners about their products – and to connect, track and manage the products themselves. Eon’s Internet of Things platform delivers the enabling technology brands need to connect their products. Now, the Eon Partner Network unlocks the communication about those products between brands and their circular business partners – powering fully functional circular systems and enabling both brands and partners to capitalize on the ongoing value of their products and materials far beyond the first point of sale.”
– Natasha Franck, Eon Founder & CEO
The Eon Partner Network makes the promise of a digital system of connected products viable at scale using a functional language for communication and exchange of data between products digitized via the Eon platform.
