New York, August 27, 2012 ─ Professional Access today announced Estilo, an Oracle Accelerate Solution for Oracle’s ATG Web Commerce for the Fashion & Apparel Industry. Estilo is a solution for growing omni-channel fashion and apparel retailers built on Oracle’s ATG Web Commerce Platform, a complete commerce software platform that enables retailers to deliver highly personalized online customer experiences. Estilo for Oracle Accelerate empowers apparel retailers and consumers with tools for enhanced visualization and selection of products, for engaging with social communities to drive collaborative shopping, for generating increased traffic across all channels, and for supporting comprehensive clienteling capabilities for store assistants. Combined, these tools drive a rich user experience and support omni-channel business effectiveness. Professional Access is an Oracle Accelerate solution provider and a Platinum-level member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN).
A recent report from eMarketer revealed that online sales of apparel and accessories are growing faster than any other ecommerce product segment and will increase 20% to $40.9 billion in 2012, up from $34.16 billion in 2011 and up to $73 billion by 2016. With the fashion and apparel industry slated for such impressive growth, a comprehensive omni-channel strategy is critical. In addition, consumers today increasingly research online before and while shopping in brick-and-mortar stores. For this reason, retailers must address the challenges and opportunities presented by mobile tablet and Smartphone shoppers, as well as facilitating and participating in social media to build brand engagement. Today, omni-channel commerce is an imperative and offers an interesting opportunity for brands to innovate and differentiate products and services.

Additional capabilities such as Virtual Fitting Room, User Collections, Shop by Look, Cross-channel inventory and pick-up create opportunities for competitive differentiation.
