Ralph Lauren uses FastFit360 for 2012 Olympic Collection

0

(LAS VEGAS, JANUARY 4, 2012)  FastFit360 today announced that prestigious brand Ralph Lauren will use the company’s cloud communication tool in the development of their Olympic Collection.  Building on the success of their company’s involvement in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Ralph Lauren have been chosen to design the official Opening Ceremony and Closing Ceremony parade uniforms for Team USA, as well as a unique collection of village wear apparel and accessories.

The Olympic Games are the world’s greatest sporting event, and FastFit360 is honored to announce that its solution will play a vital role in the development of the Ralph Lauren collection – enabling the multinational Ralph Lauren teams to securely track progress and review garment quality from anywhere in the world.

Using FastFit360, the Ralph Lauren teams can view 360-degree images of any item from their collection through any Internet connected device (including iPad & iPhones).  That same robust, online communication platform will also allow them to track all of the work committed to a sample.  Partners and heads of department are then able to annotate, reply and comment on the work undertaken on this high profile collection – all without the expense typically associated with travelling and shipping.

The Ralph Lauren 2012 Olympic Collection for men, women and children will be available for purchase beginning in May in select Ralph Lauren retail stores, Team USA shops, select U.S. department stores and online at www.RalphLauren.com and www.TeamUSAShop.com.

Leading technology company FastFit360 provides a cloud solution designed to allow global teams and supply chain partners to work more efficiently, creatively and economically by reducing the costs associated with sampling and multinational collaboration.
