“After working with the iShopShape solutions for a few seasons we are really happy with the goals we have achieved so far”, adds Preca Brummel’s Michele Prevosti. “We are able to streamline the entire process. Our Visual Merchandising teams are now in the position to plan stores visually for each Store Chain”. They simulate store merchandising in a very early stage in order to make the right buying decisions and to communicate visual merchandising guidelines clearly to the stores.
Preca Brummel also achieved remarkable results with StyleShoots. This complete system for great in-house product photography, with zero manual processing, brought massive time as well as costs savings in the area of product photography. “We are now able to shoot 100% completely processes product photos, with costs savings up to 80% compared with our traditional product photo shooting process.
