Visual 2000 mobilizes its PLM.net on new Windows 7 Tablet PCs
Feb '11
Visual 2000 International Inc announces certification of its popular Visual PLM.net product lifecycle management solution for use with a stable of newly launched Tablet PCs powered by Microsoft Windows 7. Testing of the fashion-focused PLM software was conducted by Visual 2000 in January using the ExoPC Slate device.

The ExoPC is an ultra-mobile, 11.6-inch touchscreen computer that utilizes the same interface and operating system found on most business computers. In contrast to consumer-oriented tablets like the Apple iPad, this new breed of Tablet PCs promise to be more appropriate for business content creators such as developers, merchants, sourcing managers, and other professionals that need access to full business software applications.

“While other mobile devices and phones may be fine for browsing web pages and viewing limited management reports, we believe that there is much greater opportunity to leverage the power of PLM by mobilizing its full capabilities through these innovative and full-featured Windows devices”, explained Charles Benoualid, vice president of research and development for Visual 2000. “As the first fashion PLM developer to embrace Tablet PCs, Visual 2000 affirms its commitment to delivering the best possible solutions to the apparel and fashion industry.”

To certify its solution on the mobile platform, Visual 2000 tested the full range of Visual PLM.net capabilities; including tech pack creation and management, internal and supplier collaboration, line planning, calendaring and workflow, image and document management, and more.

The ExoPC Slate features a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1080p graphics, and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. Windows Tablet PCs are also available from Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and other computer makers. Microsoft delivers mouse- and keyboard-free mobility through Tablet PC capabilities found in the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7.
