LEF Industries will leverage the simplicity and power of the all-in-one business software to manage purchasing, distribution, and customer service for its growing stable of global brands and more than 500 retail customers.
(Montreal, QC – July 25, 2013) Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that leading Canadian wholesale distributor LEF Industries has begun implementation of its Visual End2End™ enterprise solution. The distributor of global fashion apparel, footwear, and action sports brands will use the integrated, industry-focused software across its purchasing, inventory management, distribution, customer service, and financial management operations at its Brossard, Quebec headquarters. LEF expects the move to the all-in-one solution to streamline processes, increase operational efficiencies, and enhance customer service.
According to LEF Controller Stephanie Laurin, “We wanted a system that could help us manage our entire operation. After receiving recommendations from industry associates, we discovered the Visual End2End solution could do that and more. We like that it meets most of our needs right out-of-the-box and gives us a single, reliable source for all the information our teams need to run the business and serve our customers.”
LEF Industries is currently training on the financial, order management, and operational (ERP) capabilities, electronic data interchange (EDI), e-commerce (ECOM), and sales (SFA) capabilities of the End-2-End solution. The company expects to go-live on the new systems in a few weeks.
“We are pleased with the opportunity to work with LEF,” noted Alain Perez, Visual 2000 New Business Development Manager for Canada. “They will benefit from the simplicity and visibility of managing all operations and financials in a single system. We look forward to helping them advance their business.”
