(Montreal, QC CANADA – September 10, 2012) Visual 2000 International Inc. has completed a series of new developments, upgrades, and integration points designed to uniquely position its Visual End-2-End™ fashion solution to meet the numerous and complex challenges of today’s omnichannel retailers, brands, and distributors. With the addition of best-in-class business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C), mobile commerce, and point-of-sale (POS) tools, the fully-integrated business solution promises to provide fashion wholesalers and retailers with the visibility and control they need to more effectively and efficiently manage customer experiences and internal operations across all sales channels.<

According to Visual 2000 VP of Research and Development Charles Benoualid, “As retailers and brands alike embrace the growing opportunities online, they face major challenges in integrating these new channels into their core financial and operational business systems. They must accurately and consistently manage the flow of product, pricing, order, inventory and other critical content across all channels in real-time. By bringing all information and processes together in one system, our End-2-End solution gives large enterprises and small businesses the power and simplicity needed to run their entire single or multi-channel operation.”
