Optitex, a leading provider of software solution for fashion and apparel industry, has collaborated with YKK Group, a leading manufacturer of zippers.
The partnership will give Optitex customers recent version O/19.5 access to YKK products.
The easy access to YKK’s rich library of fastening products will allow customers to embed YKK 3D images in their 3D models so as to get a more clear view of the product in design creation.
Moreover, the zippers’ data embedded in the design will allow customers to better visualise the zipper models, which will be beneficial in other processes like sourcing and inventory management for the production.
Expressing his view on the joint collaboration, Amit Ben-Sheffer, VP Products at Optitex, said “We are continuously striving to expand our fashion and apparel toolset. The collaboration with YKK, a leading industry vendor, enriches our users’ options and supports the level of detail and precision we are committed to delivering from design to production.”
The collaboration aims to help the apparel and fashion manufacturers create more realistic digital models of their designs, collaborate better, fasten time to market and reduce the production errors.
“We are proud that our partnership will deliver a sustainable and smarter workflow, saving our joint customers time and money,” said Takashi Tsukumo, Vice President, YKK Corporation Global Marketing Group.
