Gloria Jeans adopts FastFit360 cloud communication tool
01
Mar '12
FastFit360 announced that Gloria Jeans Corporation, Europe's leading manufacturer of denim garments and one of Russia's largest retailers, will deploy their eponymous cloud communication platform across its global operations.

In a world where multinational corporations source, manufacture and distribute their products around the globe, the costs (both monetary and in terms of time needlessly lost) associated with physical sampling and shipping can be considerable. With the rapid installation of FastFit360 studios in its headquarters in Russia, Ukraine and Shanghai (and with a predicted expansion to other countries in the near future), the teams at Gloria Jeans will be able to capture, share and annotate vital product data, allowing seamless collaboration on the development of the company's latest garments.

Designed specifically for the apparel industry, the FastFit360 platform enables truly social business communication – a single location where supply chain partners, designers and executives alike can track everything from inspiration to product milestones and pre-production samples without the expense typically associated with shipping and travel.

A picture speaks a thousand words, and as a cloud-based solution with no local data processing or storage requirements, FastFit360 will also allow the distributed Gloria Jeans teams to view 360-degree images (or extremely detailed close-ups) of any item from their collection anywhere in the world, through any Internet connected device (including iPad & iPhone).

With an extremely short implementation and training period, Gloria Jeans is expected to join the many customers who have achieved significant savings in shipping, sampling and global communications using the FastFit360 platform. With studios in Macy's and Ralph Lauren, some of the biggest names in fashion are already enjoying the rapid return on investment that is typical of a FastFit360 implementation, and with more than 300 stores ready to reap the benefits of collaborative, cloud-based product development and quality assurance, Gloria Jeans is predicted to follow suit.

FastFit360 provides a cloud-based solution specifically designed to meet the needs of modern product development within the apparel industry. The FastFit360 platform allows multinational teams and supply chain partners to work more efficiently, creatively and economically by reducing the costs associated with prototyping, sampling and global collaboration.

Gloria Jeans Corporation was founded in 1988 in Russia, and has gone on to become one of the country's fastest-growing retailers as well as being Europe's largest manufacturer of upscale denim apparel for the adult and children's markets. With 300 retail stores, 10,000 employees, eleven factories and operations in Ukraine, Shanghai, Siberia and throughout the Russian Federation, it offers fashionable products at competitive prices under both the Gloria Jeans and Gee Jay brand-names.
