NedSense/NedGraphics (NYSE EuronextAmsterdam:NEDSE) Has Been Selected by Howard Elliott Collection
New York, July 2012
The Howard Elliott Collection Selects NedGraphics
NedGraphics, Inc. announced that Howard Elliott will use the NedGraphics CAD software suites for product development, virtual sampling and web content.
The Howard Elliott Collection (howardelliott.com) is one of the premiere manufacturers of decorative mirrors, accessories and occasional furniture to the Home Furnishings and Contract/Hospitality industries. In their meteoric rise, they are now shipping to nearly 4500 furniture, home furnishings and lighting retailers, along with many of the top contract companies who are servicing the hotel and building industries worldwide.
Attributing their success to innovated designs, a broad variety of styles and sizes, unique combinations of raw materials, competitive pricing and a world class sales organization, Howard Elliott was looking for a solution that would give them a competitive edge, cut costs and to increase sales through their various market channels.
Brian Berk, President at Howard Elliott recalls, “when we saw the NedGraphics mapping program apply digital designs to our product photographs, and that they were of a quality high enough to show as an actual sample, it created numerous opportunities”. “Within a very short period of time, we were showing virtual products on our website and that saves a tremendous amount of time and expense versus the way it had been done previously”. Berk adds, “we have already trained one of our Media Managers and Product Development Managers how to use Easy Map and they are both loving the program because they are virtually sampling a bunch of fabrics without having to sew a stitch, so it’s working out and exceeding our expectations!”
“Leveraging advanced technology can quickly level any playing field”, remarked Geoffrey Taylor Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for NedGraphics. “By implementing virtual sampling and product development solutions, Howard Elliott has established themselves as one of the most forward thinking companies in the industry today.”
Based on the widely used Texture Mapping, Virtual Sampling, Printing, and Weaving platforms, NedGraphics software is utilized by today’s leading retailers, home fashions and apparel brands.
