Visual 2000 International Inc announces that UK activewear brand manager Outdoor and Sports Company Limited (OSC Ltd) has begun implementation of its Visual PLM.net product lifecycle management (PLM) solution at its Hyde, Greater Manchester headquarters.

The software promises to accelerate key business processes and empower more efficient and sustainable growth across the Ronhill, Sprayway, and Mountain Equipment product lines. Following a phased adoption, all three brands are expected to complete implementation of the new software this autumn.

According to OSC Ltd Chairman Stephen Cann, “Visual 2000 offers a solution that will allow us to improve our internal processes and assist the communication with our manufacturing partners. The team is looking forward to implementing the system and to the improvements that will help the business achieve its goals.”

OSC Ltd will initially implement about 50 PLM users across its product development processes, including design, merchandising, and quality assurance teams. The company will also take advantage of free vendor licenses provided in the system to extend secure system access to its global supply chain partners. By bringing its manufacturers and suppliers online, OSC Ltd will greatly enhance collaboration around its products and increase process visibility into the entire design-to-delivery product lifecycle.

“We look forward to working with OSC as they improve and grow their business”, noted Tony Walker, Visual 2000 European Sales Director. “We are pleased that they have recognised the value of the advanced technology, out-of-the-box fashion capabilities, and speed-to-benefit advantages that Visual PLM.net brings to the European fashion industry.”

Outdoor and Sports Company Limited is a unit of The Bollin Group Ltd, owners and distributors of quality global brands. In addition to providing multi-channel distribution services for premium products in the UK, Bollin Group owns several outdoor and sports brands such as Bridgedale, Mountain Equipment, Ronhill, Sprayway, and Hilly Clothing, which they distribute worldwide.
