(BOLTON, ENGLAND, NOVEMBER 10, 2009) Eventura, the UK Fashion ERP Supplier has signed a strategic alliance with Visual 2000 of Montreal, Canada for the provision of Visual PLM.Net™ across EMEA region.
Eventura now has an end to end offering for small and medium sized organizations in the Apparel, Footwear and Accessories (AFA) industry. In conjunction with their Sage 200 Fashion offering, the new Product Life Management (PLM) offering provides clients with capabilities to manage the design, sourcing and collaboration of their suppliers and customers. This is achieved through the powerful browser based Product Lifecycle Management tool “Visual PLM.netTM.”
The agreement allows Eventura to sell Visual PLM.netTM throughout Europe and both companies have agreed on a process to allow Visual PLM.netTM clients to operate support through Eventura’s European operations backed by the author, Visual 2000, based in Montreal, Canada.
Speaking on behalf of Eventura, Chris Houghton, Managing Director says ‘We are delighted to be announcing our partnership with Visual 2000. This relationship started some time ago following an excellent score from WhichPLM?TM which had benchmarked the system against the PLM competition. Since then, we have successfully proved the integration with our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) offerings to the market. The enhanced functionality compared to its competition, combined with the thin client architecture gives our clients an easy and powerful method to deploy across the supply chain.’
Charles Benoualid, Visual 2000’s VP of Research and Development, added 'This alliance only strengthens our global coverage and helps us provide a consolidated approach to the product life management process of the industries we serve. There are strong resources available to both companies and a lot of knowledge is to be shared between us. We see this as a positive step forwards for the industry and believe it will bring great benefit to each of us. Eventura has developed as a strong association in the Apparel, Footwear and Accessories industry and we see the synergy of the two organizations only increasing.'
