Expanded Solution Spotlight: Modaris by Lectra

September 27, 2011 by Ben Hanson in FEATURED, News with


It’s a topic I have visited in previous editorials – that the same phenomenal growth that we’ve seen in PLM for our industry in the past decade has been mirrored in the increased diversity of the companies that rely on it.  PLM (along with complementary elements) is now better than ever at supporting the heart of the retail, footwear and apparel industries.

Those supporting elements and expanded solutions now form critical parts of any profitable company’s IT investment strategy, and all, I believe, qualify for inclusion on here on WhichPLM.

The latest of these PLM elements to join WhichPLM is Lectra’s Modaris, a new pattern making, grading, and 3D prototyping solution that aims to revolutionise the way fashion works.

With integrated 3D technology, Modaris is designed to enable smarter, more efficient product development from the very first step. That same efficiency aims to make it easy to capitalize on pattern making assets and expertise, delivering shorter development process overall and ensuring fluid concept sharing. With previous styles and basic blocks available at the click of a mouse, Modaris is intended to make new collections easier than ever to develop.

The achievement of a more streamlined process leads to reduced waste, which for fashion companies translates to a better bottom line. The virtual prototyping functions of Modaris aim to eliminate costly intermediary prototypes and samples, while assuring top-notch quality and fit.

Find out how Modaris aims to create a more productive pattern room and a faster, more cost-effective product development process by visiting the WhichPLM expanded solutions listing.
