) has released major new versions of its Visual PLM.net® (V5) and Visual ERP.net™ (V8) fashion software. Held earlier this month, the annual business strategy and product road map meeting was attended by Visual 2000 teams and business partners from Australia, Canada, France, United Kingdom, United States, and other countries. In addition to a host of all-new and extended capabilities, the new software releases feature improved usability, expanded dashboard visualization and reporting, and advanced integration with Microsoft® productivity tools.
According to Charles Benoualid, Vice President of R&D, “These new releases represent significant advancements that will enable our clients to meet the fast-changing demands of the global fashion business. As core components of the Visual End-2-End™ fashion IT platform, we continue to make significant investments in our PLM and ERP capabilities and integration to ensure that our clients can achieve and sustain a competitive edge. In doing so, we keep Visual 2000 at the forefront of fashion technology.”
To foster greater team and vendor collaboration, Visual PLM.net V5 offers full integration with Microsoft Exchange Server. This enables companies to leverage expanded workflow, calendaring, alerts and notification capabilities in the software through their Microsoft Outlook® software. The leading Product Lifecycle Management solution also gets a host of new Document Management (DOCM) tools that includes optical character recognition capabilities. New Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that track the number of product iterations, adopted designs, and top sellers to help clients measure their Return on Investment in PLM. The Pantone® color libraries are also now available in Visual PLM.net.
Offering deep integration with the Microsoft Office 2013 suite, Visual ERP.net V8 gets an entirely-new user interface that leverages the familiar ribbon-style menu layout to provide greater visibility and simplify navigation. A new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) module provides automatically triggered event emails and notifications to select clients and team members. Event-triggered automation has been added to allow shipping, Visual WebStore or consumer websites, and other EDI information to be automatically brought into the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Visual ERP.net also features expanded built-in dashboard presentation capabilities that can be configured to specific job roles and responsibilities.
Visual 2000 software modules are available as stand-alone systems or natively integrated as part of the Visual End-2-End™ fashion solution. Both of the new releases are now generally available worldwide.
