Cloud-based application FastFit360 launched its latest release of FastFit Studio, which is its first major Studio application release this year. The application is used by retailers such as Macy’s and Ralph Lauren to allow their supply-chain partners, designers and executives to rotate, annotate and analyze 360-degree images or detailed close-ups of their garments.
Within the multiple stages of product development, the stitching, hems, materials and trims can move through several iterations before a garment reaches final approval, which can mean a new sample for each stage that needs to be created, shipped and analyzed. The new Studio platform is quicker and more accurate and allows teams across the supply chain to work more efficiently by reducing the costs associated with prototyping, sampling and global collaboration.
With the integration of new gridlines and detailed photography, users can more quickly and easily position hems, measure their garments through the lens of the Studio camera, and ensure consistent alignment, height and balance between multiple samples. By positioning samples within the new grid at the moment of capture, the images that are shared using FastFit360’s cloud storage have consistent points of reference, which increases the accuracy of the collaborative sampling process and reduces cost for the user, according to Jodee Talley, director of marketing for the Las Vegas–based company.
