WHAT IS IT?
AGRE3D is a platform for a multidisciplinary workspace, that wishes to improve the collaboration between co-workers. It allows individuals to see real time changes on projects and making everyone accountable for their actions.
Friction in the work place slows down the production process, removing frictions can smooth the process by improving the relationships in between people, and make the workplace enjoyable.
We believe that a creative workflow can be improved by making its communication centralized, its data-processing & display more intuitive, and where individuals are accountable for their deadlines & actions throughout the entire process.
To begin we are just focusing on the footwear industry because it is:
Fast Pace Industry
Collaborative work ethic
Will still exist in the Future
Unchanged creative process
They order a lot of physical samples for each round just to see small details and for multiple departments.
Teams don’t commit to a decision. They keep changing it through out the process.
Marketing and Merchandising don’t get to see the whole line until the end.
Multiple platforms for communication, file sharing, collaborative workspace.
Number based departments have a hard time visualizing a product.
WE ARE SOLVING:
Unnecessary Physical Samples
One cohesive interface
Digitalization of data
Everyone agreeing on a decision and move forward efficiently.
Clear digital visualization of product
Cohesiveness between data and design
USE CASE #1
Matt and Jason need to start creating the color ways for the new Prestos.
They want to collaborate in this point to avoid going back and forth.
This is the the third step for the design team in their timeline. Only design team needs to see this process and information.
USE CASE #2
Designs and prototypes are sent to factory abroad.
Factory needs to ask a few questions to keep with production, they contact the developer.
Developer needs to communicate this to the design team to agree on the changes.
They all need this to be resolved fast.
USE CASE #3
Tanya and Anna need to go over the production line select which SKUs are going where and how to merchandise the products.
It would be beneficial for them to see the whole vision of this project to sell a better story to the consumer.
