U.K. Fashion Brand Victoria Beckham Selects Visual Next PLM
As part of the CGS family, Visual Next is known for its End2End solutions in the fashion, footwear, accessories and uniform industries. Last month, Visual Next was selected by the U.K. fashion brand Victoria Beckham to provide an end-to-end suite of tools to its business.
Victoria Beckham will implement Visual Next Suite to harmonize the core business processes. The brand will implement Visual Next’s PLM, ERP and BI tools to provide wider business access and visibility as well as control of its processes. Additionally, the accounting team will make great use of the built-in, fully-fledged accounting system to ensure visibility of margins and costs are clear and in line with the business direction.
Victoria Beckham’s business processes will be completely streamlined, and many manual processes will be eliminated thanks to the implementation of the Visual Next End2End Omnichannel Solution.
Visual PLM will grant the company’s business total control of the product development process, while Visual ERP and Visual BI will grant it access to real-time reporting and statistics.
Chief Technical and Digital Officer of Victoria Beckham fashion, James Wintle, explains that this will offer the business a standardized model and a way of operating to protect the bottom line as well as introduce a system that will foster greater productivity, giving the wider team the correct set of tools to deliver on the overall direction the business is taking. He continued to explain that he chose Visual Next because it brings a long history of industry knowledge to bear and this would leverage a more controlled and quicker deployment, the team’s clear understanding of the needs of our business meant we can hit the road running with a dedicated team and resource from the U.K.
Visual Next European Business Development Director Dave Hampson added that he is very excited to be working with the Victoria Beckham team and that Visual Next is proud to begin a journey with the fashion brand, which will lead to a greater level of visibility across the departments, ensuring early adoption and increased productivity at a very early stage of the deployment.
