The beta release of the redesigned Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution from fashion software provider Visual Next is fully mobile.

Integrated with ten Visual Next applications, the new Visual PLM solution will be rolled out over the next few months. It has been developed in close collaboration with leading fashion companies and dedicated clients, and is designed to cover the ever-changing needs of modern fashion business, from concept to consumer, the company says.

In particular, it enables apparel professionals to have visibility of their business anytime and anywhere via a smartphone, tablet or computer. And it will include new responsive tabs, navigation and online annotation tools to improve the team collaboration and productivity.

"We are confident that this upgrade will have major benefits for our present and future clients," notes Charles Benoualid, VP of research and development. "This includes improved access to data for better product innovation, streamlined business operations, which will in-turn, drive efficiency, real-time collaboration and increase savings."

Visual PLM is a pre-configured, out-of-the box solution that gives merchandising, design and development teams the visibility and control to manage the product lifecycle and streamline their work.
