Visual 2000 International Inc, a best in breed provider of software for apparel, footwear and accessory companies, announced their membership in the Canadian Sporting Goods Association (CSGA) today. Visual 2000 elected to join the CGSA after providing business software solutions to a growing number of outerwear and sporting goods providers throughout the world.
The CSGA has been facilitating cooperation between sporting good vendors, retailers, service providers and government organizations since being established in 1945. The association aims to be a hub that helps to promote the sporting goods industry for the health and prosperity of all Canadians.
“We’re happy to be joining such a diverse group of companies in their commitment to success,” said Visual 2000’s Canadian Sales Manager, Francois Chene. “The CSGA has a long history of supporting growth in the sporting goods industry in Canada and we’re proud to be aligned with them and their objectives.”
Originally developed for the apparel industry, Visual 2000’s suite of end-to-end business management software has also been adopted by footwear and sporting goods companies around the world. Internationally respected brands like MEC, Assos, Asics and Mountain Equipment trust Visual software to help conduct various aspects of their business.
Through the deployment of applications like Visual 2000’s PLM, ERP and business intelligence offerings, clients have been able to increase efficiency while maintaining a clear view of their entire enterprise. This includes design, sourcing, production, selling and business analysis.
“Our team has decades of experience designing technology to manage and optimize apparel and fashion accessory businesses,” Chene continued. “We hope to work with other association members to grow our understanding of global sourcing, production and logistics within the sporting goods industry. I’m sure our knowledge and software tools will help us to build mutually beneficial relationships with other CSGA members.”
