Adobe Illustrator Connector

View margins, costs and revenue for an entire collection or range.
Plan top-down or bottom-up across seasons, departments, collections, product groups, down to specific product options. Define quantities, analyze costs and revenue for creative and operational control.
Automatic placeholders provide design, product and buying teams with targets. Compare Planned vs Actual data and monitor collection progress in real time.

Vendors can submit costs, confirmations, delivery dates, shipments and collaborate on tasks so you stay informed of changes and delays.

Our Analytics provide industry-specific widgets that you can customize to create personalized dashboards. You gain visual insights of collections and products across brands, departments, teams and users.
Our beautiful data visualizations are available both on desktop and mobile so business users can take decisions from anywhere.
With Analytics, you convert information into action.
