Visual Next, provider of end-to- end omni-channel business solutions for the RFA (Retail, Footwear, and Apparel) industry, has announced its sponsorship and participation for the third time at the Product Innovation (PI) Apparel conference, related to fashion, apparel, and footwear industry, to be held in New York City, on June 22 and 23, 2017.

The event is a gathering of retail, apparel, and footwear industry professionals to discuss and promote innovation within the industry. Topics for this year includes emerging technologies such as smart fabrics and wearables as well as fit data capturing tools.

Although a wide range of topics will be examined during the conference, discussions concerning the intersection between PLM and the changing retail environment will be given extra attention. Virtual sampling and inventory excess prevention, for instance, are being promised by PLM providers as ways to decrease the overall cost and time required for the development of a new product line.

Special focus will also be given to the importance of proper collaborative tools and processes within PLM systems: a domain where Visual PLM has excelled for years.

VP of research & development, Charles Benoualid said, “PI Apparel showcases the latest advancements in fashion technology and processes. As a supplier of apparel-focused omni- channel business software, we’re excited to both share and discover the ways in which the latest technologies will disrupt the current retail landscape.”

Benoualid said, “Visual Next is always proud to participate at these events. Not only do we get to meet and engage with some of the top global brands and businesses today, but they are able to receive a tour and test the features of Visual PLM and Visual End2End software during the conference. It is always exciting when businesses can witness first-hand how these systems can improve and optimise their own business processes.” (GK)
