Visual Next and ColourMart Ltd have joined hands to integrate precision colour management capabilities into Visual Next’s renowned Visual PLM platform. Visual Next provides End2End software to apparel, footwear, and fashion accessory companies. ColourMart delivers world-class colour palette management, colour approval, and supply chain colour processes.

The addition of Color Lifecycle Management (CLM) tools to 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.

Visual Next’s vice president of research and development Charles Benoualid said, “With so many fashion retailers, brands, and manufacturers challenged by the lack of speed and accuracy around colour-related processes, we saw the addition of CLM capabilities as a natural extension of PLM. In much the same way as PLM accelerates and brings transparency and collaboration to product development, CLM can transform traditionally manual, time-consuming, and subjective colour tasks into more accurate and responsive processes with permanent removal of time, costs, and errors.”

ColourMart’s innovative PaletteManager solution is used by colourists, designers, and developers to develop and manage colour palettes. Advanced search tools enable users to quickly search libraries by colour, text, and other attributes. Users can sort, filter, edit, annotate, and manage library colours to build new palettes that can be split, combined, compared, and analysed visually in 2D or 3D. The ColorFlow tool uses an intuitive dashboard display to track and manage the entire colour approval process. It provides a much higher level of visibility and control to both specifiers and colour suppliers (dye houses/mills) as they manage digital and physical colour submissions and approvals.

ColourMart owner Richard Lawn said, “While colour is one of the most important aspects of fashion, most PLM systems do not support digital colour measurement and management processes. We have long believed that the marriage of PLM and CLM could accelerate and improve colour decisions and applications. We are pleased with the opportunity to partner with Visual Next and look forward to empowering their customers to streamline and improve the accuracy of their colour management and approval processes.” (GK)
