FTADirect Enters Partnership With I2 Technologies

New York City-based FTADirect, an online business-to-business marketplace for the fiber, textiles and apparel industries, has entered into a partnership with Dallas-based i2 Technologies Inc., a provider of intelligent e-business and marketplace solutions. FTADirects online exchange will use i2s TradeMatrix platform, which will also connect to SoftgoodsMatrix to manage the supply chain from fabric to finished goods.i2s market-proven, best-of-breed technology lends tremendous value to FTADirect as we develop the core platform for our functionality, said Nick Hahn, chairman, FTADirect, and former CEO and founder, Cotton Incorporated. At the same time, FTADirect rounds out i2s offering for the soft goods industry. In a very real sense, SoftgoodsMatrix, powered by i2s TradeMatrix, picks up where FTADirect leaves off. Its a big win for both parties, as well as the soft goods industry overall.
