Each day your designers, product developers, and material teams make critical business decisions: Which type of material and which supplier to use? Which material will be high quality yet cost-effective?
Unfortunately, information needed to make these decisions is trapped in physical material swatch books, which are often out of date and contain inadequate data. Searching through dozens of books to find the appropriate materials, in addition to tracking down specs from suppliers leads to inflated development costs and significantly slows down innovation and speed-to-market.
Built hand-in-hand with the world's leading brands and suppliers, Material Exchange is an advanced filtering and material visualization platform that allows material suppliers to upload material pictures and specs into one system, enabling brand designers, material teams and product developers to search and organize raw materials for their collections within a secure digital environment.
By working digitally, brands can now trim days and weeks off development cycles by knowing what suppliers have in stock in real-time. The platform enables users to pull material specs and pictures directly into 3D design solutions, reducing the need for costly physical material samples and swatches.
