The ACRONYM® Operating System

Project description

The digital suite we design and develop for ACRONYM® is based on a set of tools and mechanics. It has since become the backbone of the brand's commercial activities. It handles store orders, hosts the wholesale process, tracks stock and manages the extensive product database. It also serves as a growing knowledge base about products and workflows. It has been under permanent construction since 2014. Over the years, ACR OS has become a lightweight PLM system, tailored to ACRONYM® specific needs and workflows.

The system is designed and advanced in a collective effort together with the operative ACRONYM® team based in Berlin, New York and Munich. During our time on the project, we built considerable knowledge about design, development, production and distribution mechanics of highest-grade garments.

The system itself remains unaccessible to the public, for obvious reasons.
