Men's outerwear manufacturer A&D Hope is implementing the Visual End2End suite of software products to connect and improve visibility across all departments from design to finance. 

Established in the 1920s, UK-based A&D Hope makes suits, jackets, outerwear and leathers for men under brands including Harry Brown, Henley & Knight, Paul Berman and Carter & Jones. 

"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," said Jeff Hope, managing director at A&D Hope. 

A&D Hope will benefit from Visual 2000's Rapid Deployment Process (RDP) to enable quick gains from the solution's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other key fashion capabilities. 

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.
