FastFit360 Cool Vendor Reducing Cycle Time

FastFit360
Have you heard the news?  Gartner Inc. listed FastFit360 in their “Cool Vendor 2014 Report for Product Design, Development & Life Cycle”.  FastFit360 launched a hot new feature toward the beginning of this year called BURST.  It’s pure mobile capture which means any device (iPhone, iPad, Android) enables users to capture LIVE video from inspiration to fit to factory inspections which includes Online annotation.  It’s a game changer.

As Gartner noted in the report, “The 2014 Cool Vendors in product design and life cycle management have the common thread of finding, orchestrating, juxtaposing and linking content in ways that streamline collaboration, product innovation, manufacturing and service.”

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner to be confirmation of our mission to help customers reduce cycle time and improve their global communication,” said Roxy Starr, executive vice president, design and development, FastFit360. “Our customers frequently tell us how our solution has been a game changer for their businesses, empowering them to dramatically boost efficiency and reduce costs. We are excited to be recognized for our innovation by Gartner, which is such a well-respected research organization.”

FastFit360’s solution enables users to communicate in the one and only universal language: images. From new fashion styles to furniture designs to retail displays, FastFit360 helps companies quickly and easily capture and annotate product images and videos. In a process coined “e-sampling®,” they can then seamlessly share that product information from any mobile device or computer anywhere in the world. A social media-like interface provides the ability to couple comments with annotated video and image files.
