Deliver Compelling Personalized Products & Leading Experiences

Consumers are becoming more and more educated and, as they do, they are becoming very specific about their needs and desires. For instance, a consumer may be looking for a water-proof, trail-running shoe in a specific width, with personalized cushioning, and with specific material/color characteristics. Understanding that level of need will require an advanced artificial intelligence-driven experience combined with an industry-leading customization engine. This next generation of product experience and decision-making assistance is powering future Market Transformation.

Lower Costs While Improving Quality via Digital Samples

For years, other industries have benefited by utilizing a 3D product creation process to reduce time-to-market, reduce costs, and make decisions faster. Finally, the fashion and luxury goods industry can take advantage of these same solutions to deliver desirable, high quality products in less time and less cost using digital samples. These digital samples can often communicate design intent much more clearly, eliminating confusion with factory partners.

Create the Right Product, Faster, and for Less Money

As companies try to react to consumer demand and an ever increasing number of SKUs, they must invest in continuous supply chain optimization. Modern tools allow for advanced capabilities such as reducing down time by enabling mixed/sequenced production and enhancing postponement strategy. Companies can also improve product quality though better traceability as well as early identification and precise control of potential defects.

Optimize Delivery via Intelligent Logistics

Increased competition and rising consumer expectations have created a critical need to deliver the right products in a timely manner. But companies must balance delivery costs with real world realities. This requires intelligent logistics tools that can reduce transportation costs by dynamically optimizing routes and improving vehicle utilization. These smart tools can even choose the appropriate vehicle type for the load (dry vs refrigerated) as well as create dynamic delivery pricing and windows.
