Using CintasDesign iPad apps, image consultants of Cintas can now create uniform design programs for clients virtually at a much faster pace.

The iPad app enables Cintas to visualize, design and test new uniform ideas in a visually captivating environment. It also facilitates the image consultants to showcase the latest runway styles and trends and also search for apparel by garment type, collection, theme and job function. In addition, the ‘Uniform Designer’ module in the app assists Cintas to test various uniform concepts for customers and consequently bring them to life through virtual simulation.

The ‘Inspiration Boards’ module of CintasDesign app further help customers to view apparel ensembles and utilize them as a reference point for identifying elements which they would like to incorporate into their own programs. Other noteworthy app features include a full product catalog, the ability to save uniform designs for customers’ future referrals, and the ability to export a single product, dressed figure or an entire uniform program for customers on the fly.

The company witnessed top-line growth across all the segments in the just-reported quarter and expects to continue this bull run in the coming quarters as well, albeit at a moderate pace. We also remain encouraged about such innovative ideas of the company.
