Visual Next, a provider of End2End software, has announced innovative enhancements to the Visual PLM solution, bringing their customers into the IoT world of real-time global collaboration and digitising multiple business processes from design through product development. The new Visual PLM features will be previewed during a webinar on February 14, 2019.
The new Visual PLM solution includes a complete update in HTML5, an enhanced Adobe Design integration, 3D digital body scanning, embedded artificial intelligence with image recognition, and a precision colour management integration for digital colour analysis, the company said in a media statement.
Visual Next is proud to introduce its latest innovations in product lifecycle management, meeting the needs of the new connected consumer and mobilising the workforce with digital enhancements. Visual PLM is now accessible from any device at any time, offering greater digital collaboration capabilities to increase speed to market.
“This is the most exciting advancement in our technology to date. Visual PLM in HTML5 is a complete rewrite of our solution that leapfrogs the industry with a fully mobile, browser-based solution. This enables us to deliver the solution on any device with mobile-enabled technology and automatically display the data to the user based on their device and business needs accurately and efficiently, elevating PLM into the future of fashion,” Charles Benoualid, VP of research and development at Visual Next said.
Visual PLM provides enhancements in multiple operational areas, streamlining and digitising processes in design, production, testing, compliance, and supplier and factory collaboration, simplifying management across the supply chain. The solution is delivered with role-based dashboards to meet the daily management requirements of each team member with the ability to easily design and build personalised dashboard.
The HTML rewrite not only delivers mobile-enabled technology, but provides a platform that is easily accessed globally across the enterprise ecosystem with multi-lingual and multi-cultural capabilities. The platform is licensed by the company without additional license requirements for partners, suppliers, agents, and factories, eliminating the cost barrier to truly collaborate.
Visual PLM is now embedded into the Adobe Suite, enabling design and product development teams to leverage a single workspace. The brand-new Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop integration provides users the ability to save designs and iterations directly in PLM without leaving their Adobe workspace.
In addition, the new 3D body scanning feature in the latest Visual PLM release facilitates the scan and capture of fit information with the click of a button, and imports the fit data into PLM, ensuring the consistency of point of measure. The stress points are also identified with Visual PLM’s fit algorithms, empowering the technical team to share such key information from 3D fit sessions with partners, in real-time.
The recently announced partnership with ColourMart to include precision colour management tools to the new Visual PLM promises to streamline and improve the speed and accuracy of colour palette management, lab dip approvals, bulk fabric colour QC, and other colour processes.
This new tool connected to Visual PLM transforms traditionally manual, time-consuming, and subjective colour tasks into more accurate and responsive processes. Artificial Intelligence adds the power of image, text and pattern recognition by scanning a swatch or product and performing advanced searches across competitive landscapes in seconds using attributes and intelligence for merchandisers and planners.
