According to company officials, this step is a part of Group’s strategy of adopting cloud services, which will help it optimize operating processes and achieve cost savings.

Alexey Morozov, CIO, Melon Fashion Group, commented, “The virtual fitting room service based on Open Video Presence has enabled us to optimize our designers’ work and speed up the preparation of new products for mass production.” With the incorporation of this system, designers for the Group’s three brands: Zarina, Love Republic and Befree, will be able to easily collaborate with manufacturing teams all along the design and production process of apparels.
