Zweave’s Value Proposition Zweave’s software supports the design processes of emerging, mid-market and large retail and apparel manufacturers. Zdesign, Zweave’s on-demand solution, lowers the time and the cost of managing the information created during the design lifecycle by streamlining design processes. The biggest challenge faced by retailers and apparel manufacturers today is managing the massive information developed by and between designers, pattern makers, manufacturers, sourcing agents and their partners in the vendor community. The apparel industry is a disconnected and silo driven environment where time zone challenges and information exchanges during the design lifecycle are currently managed in CAD V\VWHPVVSUHDGVKHHWVDQGHPDLO0LVFRPPXQLFDWLRQVGXULQJWKLVSURFHVVFDQWUDQVODWHLQWRVLJQLÀFDQW markdowns or worse, a missed season. Being on time and on trend is key to success and must be ongoing and repeatable for an organization and its development chain partners to survive and thrive.
