Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that Olds College will implement Visual and Visual ERPTM software solutions at their new, non-profit Apparel Innovation Centre to support students learning within their Fashion Institute. Located on the Calgary campus, the eight month Fashion Marketing Certificate program aims to give students the knowledge and tools they need to succeed in the world of fashion production and marketing.

The popular industry-tailored software,, will be used in the training of fashion design, marketing, production and other aspects of the concept-to-consumer fashion lifecycle. Students will also work with the Visual ERP software to understand how to manage a wide range of financial, supply chain, production, warehouse and distribution tasks.

According to Alain Perez, Visual 2000 Director of Canadian Sales, "Many of our customers regularly seek to hire individuals with a good knowledge of enterprise and product lifecycle management software. We are certain that, once Olds College students have been trained on Visual 2000 technology, they will quickly achieve higher levels of creativity and productivity in the fashion industry."

The landscape of the fashion industry is consistently changing to leverage new technology. The adoption of Visual End2End software will provide graduates of the Fashion Marketing Certificate program with knowledge of modern retail and fashion industry best practices. While other sectors have declined in previous years, the global fashion and apparel industry continues to grow by 2% year over year.
