Boohoo elected to implement the Visual Next suite in order to harmonize the Wholesale/3rd party business. The boohoo team is currently utilizing Visual Next’s PLM, ERP, VIS and BI tools to gain wider access and visibility of business processes, as well as to centralize procedures onto one platform.
