Audaces 29 years: from dream to industry 4.0
Audaces is today a world reference in technological innovation for fashion. Becoming a quality parameter in the fashion universe, however, was not something that happened overnight. In February, Audaces celebrates 29 years of this trajectory.
To talk about these almost 3 decades of existence, it is necessary to talk about DREAMS, after all, Audaces started as one.
Dreaming, you know, is an essential part of human life. What would we be without our dreams? Through them, we receive inspiration and see the beauty of life.
We strengthen ourselves to build new realities and transform the world, we see our possibilities and we create a new future. We face crises and strengthen ourselves to overcome difficulties.
And with a grand dream in his head and a lot of strength in his heart, two young engineer friends from UFSC, Claudio Grando and Ricardo Luiz Delfino Cunha, started to develop automation and IT company.
This seed took shape and Audaces was officially born in 1992.
Since its birth, Audaces’ vision has been to be a world reference in innovative technology, offering reliable services, generating value to the fashion market.
However, more than launching state-of-the-art systems and equipment, Audaces was born to help people realize their dreams through technology and design.
This is our mission: to promote the success of the fashion customer and to help clothing companies achieve their success.
Transforming the dream into reality requires work and focus!
Over these 29 years of history, there have been many developments and many achievements.
So much effort has resulted in us being the first company in all of Latin America to launch an automation system for modeling and fitting development.
We were also pioneers in launching an industrial plotter for confection in Latin America, and the first to develop a system for digitizing molds in the world.
Neocut, our cutting machine, the first in Latin America, is considered the safest in the world because of its presence sensors.
Its current version, Neocut Bravo, in addition to being faster and more modern, is fully aligned with industry 4.0. One of its characteristics, in fact, is that it is made with less polluting materials.
Our solutions, always thinking about streamlining processes and saving resources, were pioneers in launching a system that allows complete technical design, with automatic and integrated technical data and pre-cost. Such automation was the first in the world.
Likewise, Audaces 4D is a world-leading multi-solution. With it it is possible to create models directly on a three-dimensional mannequin.
It makes it possible to create and view sketches of a collection without the need for molds. With this, the stylist can release his imagination, gaining objectivity and agility in the time of his creation.
Thinking of creating even more facilities for fashion professionals, Audaces launched the Audaces 360 multisolution, the most complete system for the fashion industry, while innovating in the SaaS – Software as a Service offering.
It is a revolutionary concept that integrates the creative and productive stages in a single package of services through subscription.
