Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that Green Lake, Wisconsin-based PGI, Inc. has begun implementation of its Visual End2End enterprise solution.

The manufacturer of Cobra Flame Resistant Hoods, FireLine Wildland Clothing, Sawbuck Chainsaw Chaps, and other firefighting and protective gear brands is replacing multiple software systems with the integrated, industry-focused solution across its product development, production, warehousing, financial management, and other key operations. 

PGI expects the move to a unified IT platform to eliminate redundancies and related errors, streamline critical processes, and increase overall business efficiency.

According to PGI Corporate Secretary Renee Ristau, “We chose the Visual End2End solution because it will enable us to manage our entire operation with a single, out-of-the-box system. This will help us to eliminate the visibility and functional gaps of the past. Instead of struggling to patch together information from a variety of sources, we will have a single, reliable source for all the information we need to make faster and better informed business decisions.”

Visual End2End incorporates Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Warehouse Management (WMS), Financial Management (FMS), and other traditionally independent software capabilities into a fully integrated solution designed specifically to manage the unique requirements of fashion, sewn products, and other softgoods companies.

PGI expects to go-live on the new system in the third quarter of 2013 at the company headquarters and peripheral office locations.   

“We welcome the opportunity to work with PGI,” noted Farhat Awan, Visual 2000 USA Sales Director. “Like many other growing companies, they will benefit greatly from the flexibility and power of this uniquely comprehensive system. We look forward to helping PGI accomplish their goals and take their business to the next level.”
