The Visual product lifecycle management software will be available to fashion and softgoods retailers and manufacturers in Europe through a distribution deal agreed with K3 Business Technology Group.

K3 said it will offer the PLM package either as a standalone product or as an integrated component of its Microsoft Dynamics-based multi-channel retail and wholesale solution.

"With their strong industry presence and customer commitment, we are pleased to partner with K3 to expand the use of Visual in Europe," stated Charles Benoualid, vice president of research and development at Visual 2000. 

"As fashion and soft goods retailers and brands increasingly look to PLM to streamline and simplify operations, we are confident that K3 can help these companies discover the distinct advantages of our flexible, out-of-the-box solution."
