More than patterns
Creative STUDIO helps you shorten the time to market, reduce costs and be ready for e-commerce by digitizing the entire product development process.
Let's redefine CAD
Creating a new product means more than drawing its patterns. It starts by design sketching, browsing, and choosing fabrics and accessories, it than passes through pattern design, grading, sampling, elaborating the tech-pack, creating the content for e-commerce publishing, customization, manufacturing planning, sourcing, costing, product care, recycling and more. None of these is news for you, they are part of your usual product development process today.
Our goal is to help you do all these activities in a digital, integrated, collaborative environment, and this is Gemini CreativeSTUDIO, seamlessly integrated with APOGY Cloud.
From now on, CAD will stand for Computer Aided Development.
From pattern design to fully digital product development
This is a tool not just for pattern-makers
CreativeSTUDIO and APOGY Cloud are intended to enhance the productivity of many other people in a fashion company except the pattern makers.
