The most prominent fashion school in Canada will integrate Visual PLM.net® and Visual ERP™ software into its wide-ranging fashion curriculum. Use of the popular solutions will equip students to provide faster and greater value in the global apparel, footwear, and accessories industries.
(MONTREAL, QC CANADA, 20 SEPTEMBER 2011) Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that LaSalle College (http://www.lasallecollege.com) will implement Visual PLM.net® and Visual ERP™ software solutions for use in its International School of Fashion, Arts and Design at its Montreal campus. The popular industry-tailored software will be used in the training of fashion design, marketing, technical design, production, and other aspects of the concept-to-consumer fashion lifecycle.
“We are honored to be selected by LaSalle College to support their renowned fashion program”, stated Alain Perez, Visual 2000 Director of Canada Sales. “Because our software solutions are among the most widely used in Canada and around the world, this choice will expand the school’s capacity to provide students with valuable, real-world skills that will positively impact the global fashion industry.”
As the largest private bilingual college in Canada, LaSalle College offers programs in Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing that lead to a diploma of college studies (DEC). Attestations of college studies (AEC) courses include Fashion Illustration, Design, Technical Design, Patternmaking, and more. Visual PLM.net software helps fashion companies manage all product information and images, colors and raw materials, merchandise and line plans, size and technical specifications, sampling and costing, time and action calendars, and other critical pre-production processes. Visual ERP provides a wide range of financial, order, supply chain, production, warehouse and distribution, and other core fashion management capabilities.
According to Perez, “Many of our customers regularly seek to hire individuals with a good basic knowledge of our software. We are certain that, once LaSalle students are trained on Visual 2000 technology, they will quickly achieve higher levels of creativity and productivity for these and other fashion companies.”
