WHAT DO “REAL” PEOPLE THINK?
Komar Brands (a New Jersey-based company, which licenses and designs sleepwear) has already implemented TUKA3D and TUKAcloud for product development of its brands like Ellen Tracy and Carole Hochman. Compared to their previous manual pattern-making process, Production Manager James Harris says, "We have already cut out a number of prototype samples. We go straight to the market, saving at least a month of development time.” Most companies would be satisfied with those results, but Komar is looking beyond and to the future of their business. Harris explains, “You’re not just paying for the people anymore, you’re also paying for the software. So how do we utilize these assets even further? TUKA3D DE is a perfect solution to bring this process full-circle.”
For those who are sceptical about the impact of a full-circle design process, Harris admits, “Lot many people are going to be frustrated with this process because it’s going to be new. But we’re getting back to the original process of sewing something and sending it off, except that we’re doing it digitally. That’s what is most exciting.”
