Visual 2000 International Inc. announces a step change in fashion business computing with its new PLM-as-a-Platform concept. The revolutionary approach to functional and systems integration provides Visual PLM.net users with unprecedented access and visibility into enterprise-wide business information previously restricted to enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM), warehouse management (WMS), and other independent software systems.

Available for immediate delivery, new End2End and Design2Delivery software options have been packaged to equip fashion executives and professionals with various levels of integrated functionality based on their specific business requirements. Both comprise a variety of functional capabilities in an affordable, single-license solution that is coupled with Visual 2000's rapid and flexible implementation methodology.

According to Charles Benoualid, Visual 2000 Vice President of Research and Development, “Our PLM-as-a-Platform approach redefines the role and value of PLM in the fashion industry. While most software providers are working to make incremental improvements to their toolsets, we are advancing PLM as the core business platform for managing today's complex concept-to-consumer process. By making transactional information from ERP and other tools available inside PLM, teams and their suppliers can better leverage their historical data to plan and innovate on current and future products and deliveries.”

The new End2End solution option gives clients access to the full range of Visual 2000 software and global collaboration technology; including PLM, ERP, SCM, WMS, Sales Force Automation, Customer Relationship Management, Business Intelligence (BI), B2B and B2C E-commerce capabilities. The End2End solution can alternatively be integrated with an existing ERP implementation.

The focused Design2Delivery package includes PLM, SCM, and BI tools. Both provide Visual 2000 clients with the option to purchase implementation and training programs for only the capabilities they wish to use. Both options feature concurrent user licenses that allow multiple workers to share a single license where practical. In addition to the new packaged solutions, Visual 2000 will continue to offer separate software modules in select situations.

Visual PLM.net provides retailers and their supply chain partners with a configurable, out-of-the-box software solution for managing all product information and images, colors and raw materials, merchandise and line plans, size and technical specifications, sampling and costing, time and action calendars, and other critical business assets and processes.

Visual 2000 International Inc. develops and markets comprehensive software solutions for the Apparel, Footwear and Accessories (AFA) industry. The companies suite of advanced software includes Visual PLM.net product lifecycle management (PLM), Visual ERP.net enterpriseresource planning (ERP), Visual SCM.net supply chain management (SCM), Visual WMS.net warehouse management system (WMS), Visual BI.net business intelligence (BI), Visual EDI.net electronic data interchange (EDI), Visual SFA.net sales force automation software (SFA), and Visual CRM.net customer relationship management solutions.
