LECTRA: Matalan embraces Lectra's 3D product development

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Matalan embraces Lectra's 3D product development

Goals include improving accuracy of fit and speed to market

Paris, May 20, 2014
-
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to
industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and
composite materials-is pleased to announce that Matalan is implementing
Modaris®, Lectra's product development solution with integrated 3D
technology, to enhance their in-house development to achieve superior fit,
style and quality of their garments.
Founded in 1985 by John Hargreaves, with 225 stores across the UK, Matalan
stands for true family value and continually strives to offer excellent
products at an affordable price in men's, women's and children's clothing as
well as homeware. Matalan constantly looks to better understand their
customers' fit requirements, and they worked closely with Lectra to determine
the best approach to ensure that Matalan could lead the way in achieving
consistency of fit across their styles and brands.

Matalan selected Lectra's 3D product development solution, Modaris, because of
its unique ability to apply sophisticated pattern making techniques to a
virtual fitting room environment, allowing Matalan to streamline and
standardize their fit process. Matalan is now better equipped to consistently
improve speed to market.

"Adopting 3D technology will allow Matalan to speed up the development process
and save time, ensuring that we meet our customers' high expectations by
delivering up-to-the-minute fashion, with a consistently high standard of
fit," commented Jason Hargreaves, Managing Director, Matalan.

Lectra has deep industry experience and a dedicated team of experts, allowing
the two companies to work hand in hand to identify and deliver the best
solution for Matalan to establish its position at the forefront of fit
excellence.

"We are delighted that Matalan has embraced Lectra's 3D solution as part of
their process improvement initiatives. This revolutionary way of working will
put Matalan at the leading edge of technology and will enable them to realise
their goals, which is absolutely key to pushing their business strategy
forward," concluded Anastasia Charbin, Fashion Marketing Director, Lectra.
