Amazing customers

“I am writing to strongly endorse the successful implementation of the ICad 3D software by ISM, our system distributor, within the technological infrastructure of Evolution Design Lab (EDL). The impact has been transformative, providing an integral shift from traditional design methods to a streamlined, digital experience.”
Michael Chen
My experience with Inescop's ICad 3D+ and the ISM team goes back over eight years, starting with my role at Deichamm as Sourcing Director. Over the years and in my new role as Senior Vice President at Payless, the support I have received and its impact on my business has been a “game changer.” It's hard to overstate the impact, but at the very least, my ability to better design a product that doesn't just meet my business needs from a cost perspective. (...) My faith in the value of ICad 3D+ as an improvement for the footwear business is so strong that it is at the heart of the PLM system that we are in the process of implementing at Payless.
Lawerence Mariani
Senior Vice President
We use ICAD software to create the design seasonally for our customers to reduce the physical sample. Creating the designer collection and asking the buyer/customer to make the selection before making a sample is very convenient for both the customer and the factory in terms of cost savings and also sustainability that all brands are taking care of.”
Jennifer Fang
Designer 3D
At Uniglobasia Shoe Design since October 2020, our Dongguan company transitioned from traditional to digital pattern creation, embracing ICad3D+ software. The shift from 'knife to mouse' brings convenience and precision. ICad 3D+ streamlines shape and paper pattern data management, unifying storage, procurement, and mitigating material loss issues (like pattern parts, and durability).
