The client is an apparel designer based in Germany. Their target market consists mainly of women. The client designs and creates clothing, specifically dresses, in a variety of styles and sizes.
The client designs dress and then manufactures them using dress patterns (designs drawn on thin paper sheets which are used to trace the designs onto fabric). Because they replicate some designs and mix-and-match elements from different designs to create new ones, they requested that Data Entry Outsourced (DEO) assist them with scanning their dress patterns (which they would provide) and digitizing them for easier use in future.
Because the dress patterns are made of thin paper sheets, they wrinkle easily which made them extremely difficult to scan properly. This particular challenge was resolved by ironing out the patterns on a low temperature to get rid of the wrinkles and make the sketches and details easier to see.
Also, because a single dress is made up of several parts of a dress pattern, to understand the design and what the final product would look like, the team needed to carefully combine all the parts of the entire dress pattern together which was a time-consuming and tedious process in itself.
DEO's step-by-step process:
By outsourcing the scanning and digitization of their dress patterns to DEO, the client was able to save valuable time and money by not having to learn to use the necessary software and purchase the necessary equipment needed for scanning and digitizing the patterns. They were impressed with the quick turnaround time and quality of the final product.
