Visual 2000 Selected as London-Based A&D Hope. Ltd’s ERP and PLM Provider


A&D Hope. Ltd, one of the UK’s foremost suppliers of quality men’s outerwear, selects the Visual 2000 End2End software suite as their PLM and ERP software solution.

LONDON, UK – April 18, 2016 –  Visual 2000 International is pleased to announce that Men’s Wear Manufacturer A & D Hope are implementing Visual End2End suite of software products. The London-based firm is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of quality men’s outerwear.

A & D Hope’s MD, Jeff Hope, commented, “we pride ourselves on our quality of product design and excellent customer service. We needed a system that would seamlessly integrate all our processes all the way from design to financials to replace our current disparate systems – with a system to provide us with advanced reporting, financial and merchandising abilities.”  Jeff explained that they “undertook a detailed market evaluation to find the most efficient and fit-for-purpose solution to support our current and future growth needs. With Visual 2000 we are pleased to have found a solution to achieve this. We will now be able to connect all departments, from design to finance, for total visibility within a ‘one stop application’. It’s exciting to combine our business growth with new fashion technology.”

Visual 2000 UK Managing Director, Tony Mather, confirmed, “We are delighted to be working with Jeff and his management team on this project. A & D Hope are an established, respected business and will benefit from Visual’s Rapid Deployment Process (RDP). This will enable quick gains from Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other key fashion capabilities from an all-in-one business enterprise solution.”

Visual 2000’s new V8 software release centralises all product information and processes into a single system which empowers management and teams to increase operational efficiencies and streamline design, product development, production, and distribution processes. In addition to comprehensive PLM and ERP capabilities, Visual 2000 customers will benefit from Visual End2End financial management, business planning, supply chain management, multi-channel sales and order fulfilment, and other concept-to-consumer fashion software components.
