Focus International, a part of the JD Sports Fashion PLC, and leaders in the design and distribution of footwear and apparel, has selected Visual Next UK, that provides End2End software to apparel and fashion companies, to implement a new suite of software products and enable smoother processes across the business, from the sample stage through to dispatch.

The Visual End2End software suite will centralise all of Focus International’s product information and processes into a single system which will provide increased efficiency as well as streamlined design, product development, production and distribution processes, all of which will offer a smoother process for the Focus International customer. Alongside this, the brand will benefit from a wide range of concept-to- consumer fashion software components including comprehensive PLM and ERP capabilities.

Focus International operations director, Andrew Ward, said, “We pride ourselves on innovative design and excellent customer service. Being a true ‘omnichannel’ business selling via ecommerce, direct to retail customers, concessions and wholesale, we needed a system that would seamlessly integrate all these channels together to have one central inventory system to pull from – with advance reporting, financial and merchandising abilities. We have undertaken a detailed market evaluation to find the most efficient and fit- for-purpose solution to support our current and future growth needs. With Visual Next, we are pleased to have found a solution to achieve this. We will now be able to connect all departments, from design to finance, for total visibility within a ‘one stop application’. It’s exciting to combine our business growth with new fashion technology.”

Visual Next UK managing director, Tony Mather said, “We are delighted to be working with Focus International on this project. Focus International is an established, respected business in a fast moving sector and will benefit from Visual’s Rapid Deployment Process (RDP). This will enable quick gains from Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other key fashion capabilities from an all-in- one business enterprise solution.” (GK)
