Enhancing team alignment and collaboration, this platform streamlines design, product development and the supply chain to cut costs and time-to-market.

Set the Foundation for Future Growth

Establish a well-balanced collection structure with a mix of products carefully defined for each season. Consolidate views at macro and micro levels to easily share the marketing brief.

Consolidate Sourcing

Compare costs to optimize material and product purchases across size ranges and sourcing poles. Keep up with consumer demand by placing orders and replenishments quickly and efficiently.

Reinforce Style Impact

Take full advantage of design and development expertise with smart technology and process know-how to create innovative products. From Adobe Illustrator or Lectra’s native sketch environments, create and share styles and creative elements. Communicate designs visually so that product development teams may share your vision.

Control Pre-Production Costs

Accurately estimate costs and materials for more negotiating power with suppliers and more precise margin control. Anticipate risks and synchronize the global supply-chain to allow suppliers to manage production cycles without sacrificing quality.

Secure Brand Equity 

Integrate pattern making and virtual 3D prototyping to quickly check fit, allow fast modifications and reduce physical samples. Monitor changes between design and manufacturing for better reaction time.

Monitor & Measure 

Manage complex and overlapping calendars to react quickly to market demands and supply-side constraints. Guarantee and increase product performances in both quality and financial terms with Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
