London-based fashion house Yumi International Ltd is implementing the Visual End2End suite of software products to connect all departments, from design to finance, for total visibility.

"Being a true omni-channel business selling via ecommerce, direct to retail customers, concessions and our own retail stores, as well as wholesale, we needed a system that would seamlessly integrate all these channels together to have one central inventory system to pull from - with advanced reporting, financial and merchandising abilities," explains Yumi’s commercial director, Dipak Davé.

The firm, supplies women’s wear, children’s wear and accessories under the Yumi, Uttam Boutique, Yumi Girls, Uttam Kids, and Mela London brands. "It’s exciting to combine our business growth with new fashion technology," Davé adds.

Yumi will benefit from Visual’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, helping to increase operational efficiencies and streamline design, product development, production, and distribution.
