Product Spotlight Cloud App for Textile Designers The EFI (Booth 1349) Optitex Collaborate app allows global design and product teams to instantly share, view, and collaborate with colleagues and external vendors for faster decision-making earlier in the product and design cycle. The result is a dramatically reduced review and production cycle, saving major brands critical time to market. The app allows users anywhere to upload Pattern Design Software (PDF) fi les into the cloud from anywhere, view the fi les in real-time 3D, zoom, and alternate camera views on any standard Mac and PC browsers. Users can then create organized folders and manage permission to defi ne who has access to which data. As comments are collected and designs are updated, The Collaborate app automatically opens the most recent revision of a design under review. Attention to detail being fundamental to design and fashion success, the app enables real-time collaboration through the review cycle, including the ability to “pin” areas to add comments to specifi c design areas. Anyone with access to the shared workspace will also receive automatic notifi cations of comments.
