London-based sportswear manufacturer Local Boyz – one one of the UK's leading suppliers of leisurewear – is implementing an all-in-one business enterprise solution to integrate its processes from design to financials.

The company is using the Visual End2End suite of software products from Visual 2000 International.

"We needed a system that would seamlessly integrate our processes all the way from design to financials, and provide us with advanced reporting, financial and merchandising abilities," explains Local Boyz managing director, Steve Mucklow.

He adds: "We will now be able to connect all departments, from design to finance, with total visibility within a 'one stop shop' application. It's exciting to stimulate business growth with new fashion technology."

Visual's Rapid Deployment Process (RDP) will also enable quick gains from Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other key fashion capabilities.

The new V8 software release centralises all product information and processes into a single system which helps management and teams to increase operational efficiencies and streamline design, product development, production, and distribution processes.

In addition to comprehensive PLM and ERP capabilities, the tool offers financial management, business planning, supply chain management, multi-channel sales and order fulfilment, and other concept-to-consumer fashion software components.
