EFI Optitex has announced the launch of O/Cloud Collaborate, the first web-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solution offering visual collaboration specifically geared for the fashion industry. The solution incorporates photorealistic 3D viewer and streamlines collaboration across the global supply chain, for better products and faster decisions and less errors.
Asaf Landau, EFI Optitex’s Vice President and General Manager, commented, “This new visual collaboration platform cuts development times by many weeks, allowing the world’s leading retailers and brands to design better products, faster.”
The company reports that O/Cloud collaborate allows internal and external parties to manage, share and collaborate on any product related file including 2D/3D models, graphic designs as well as tech-packs in one secure location.
Additionally, having an updated centrally stored SVOT (single version of the truth) for product development, along with a photorealistic digital view of how garments will look and act, allows users to easily identify issues. It also gives them the ability to address and implement design ideas before physical samples are ever produced.
Guy Alroy, EFI Optitex’s Head of Products, added, “Having this platform directly integrated with the CAD authoring tools allows users to be incredibly efficient in exchanging ideas and comments, speeding up the decision-making process and thus the time to market.”
EFI Optitex is presenting O/Cloud Collaborate at its Innovation Corner at Texprocess in Messe Frankfurt, Germany.
