Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that the DC Design International (DCDI) will implement its End-2-End Solution across the LINCS by David Chu, Mallory & Church, and David Chu Bespoke fashion lines. Visual 2000's fully integrated ERP and PLM software will replace legacy business systems at the company's New York headquarters and Seattle, Washington distribution center to manage accounting, product development, sourcing and production, warehousing and distribution, and other business operations. When fully implemented, DCDI expects the comprehensive solution to streamline business processes, increase supply chain visibility, and improve collaboration and control throughout the entire design-to-delivery product lifecycle.

According to Visual 2000 USA Sales Director Farhat Awan, “We are pleased with the opportunity to work with DC Design International as they achieve important business improvements. As the fashion industry continues to grow faster and more competitive, many companies need to eliminate the information and functional gaps that are common with out-dated and loosely-connected independent software systems. In addition to removing these and other obstacles to their growth, DCDI can look forward to rapid implementation and reduced maintenance costs with our industry tailored, out-of-the-box solutions.”

Taking a phased approach to implementation, DCDI will first replace its current enterprise resource planning software with the Visual ERP suite, which will be used to manage core business operations including order management, production control, warehousing and distribution. In addition to upgrading all current system capabilities, the new Visual 2000 software will add an integrated accounting package and important new supply chain management capabilities for management of the company's production facility in China as well as and other suppliers.

Following a planned ERP go-live date of September 1, DCDI will deploy the integrated Visual PLM.net product lifecycle management software to streamline and manage the design, product development, and sourcing processes and improve communication and collaboration with global vendors and business partners.

Designer and entrepreneur David Chu first rose to prominence in the eighties with the success of his Nautica lifestyle brand. When Nautica was acquired in 2003. Chu later founded the DC Design International design and brand management firm, which operates the LINCS collection, Mallory & Church, and David Chu Bespoke lines. LINCS is a modern expression of style inspired by a life in and out of the country club. The century old Mallory & Church business manufactures and markets neckwear, hosiery, and scarves under several brands, including Cole Haan, Kenneth Cole, and Kate Spade, among others. The David Chu Bespoke label is a custom-clothing studio that blends the best of Savile Row and Neapolitan tailoring.
