Visual Next and ColourMart Partner to Offer Precision Color Processes in PLM

Visual Nex and ColourMart are partnering to bring precision color management to the Visual PLM™ platform. Color Lifecycle Management (CLM) improves the speed and accuracy of color palette management, lab dip approvals, bulk fabric color QC, and other color processes.

Montréal, Canada - July 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Two industry pioneers and leaders in their respective technology spaces have formed a strategic alliance to integrate precision color management capabilities into PLM and help fashion and related companies transform a traditionally manual, subjective, and time-consuming Color Lifecycle Management process.

Montreal, QC, Canada and Shrewsbury, UK – July 11, 2018 – Visual Next, leading provider of End2End solutions for the fashion, footwear, and accessories industries, and ColourMart, Ltd., a developer of cloud-based color management solutions, are partnering to integrate precision color management capabilities into Visual Next’s renowned Visual PLM platform. The addition of Color Lifecycle Management (CLM) tools to Visual PLM promises to streamline and improve the speed and accuracy of color palette management, lab dip approvals, bulk fabric color QC, and other color processes.

According to Visual Next’s Vice President of Research and Development Charles Benoualid, “With so many fashion retailers, brands, and manufacturers challenged by the lack of speed and accuracy around color-related processes, we saw the addition of CLM capabilities as a natural extension of PLM. In much the same way PLM accelerates and brings transparency and collaboration to product development, CLM can transform traditionally manual, time-consuming, and subjective color tasks into more accurate and responsive processes with permanent removal of time, costs, and errors.”

ColourMart’s innovative PaletteManager solution is used by colorists, designers, and developers to develop and manage color palettes. Advanced search tools enable users to quickly search libraries by color, text, and other attributes. Users can sort, filter, edit, annotate, and manage library colors to build new palettes that can be split, combined, compared, and analyzed visually in 2D or 3D. The ColorFlow tool uses an intuitive dashboard display to track and manage the entire color approval process. It provides a much higher level of visibility and control to both specifiers and color suppliers (dye houses/mills) as they manage digital and physical color submissions and approvals.

“While color is one of the most important aspects of fashion, most PLM systems do not support digital color measurement and management processes,” explained ColourMart Owner Richard Lawn. “We have long believed that the marriage of PLM and CLM could accelerate and improve color decisions and applications. We are pleased with the opportunity to partner with Visual Next and look forward to empowering their customers to streamline and improve the accuracy of their color management and approval processes.”

More than 550 companies around the world take advantage of Visual Next’s advanced PLM, ERP, Supply Chain Management, Warehouse Optimization, Business Intelligence Software and more.

Column: Tiger and Phil in prime time? Great idea in 1999

Jul 17, 2018

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — As golf exhibitions go, this probably once seemed like a good idea. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in a prime-time television special playing 18 holes for — and let's pause for a moment here — a cool $10 million. Put it under the lights in Las Vegas with some cool celebrities following inside the ropes, and it becomes must-see TV. Back in 1999 anyway. A concept past its time is heading to prime time, at least according to hints dropped by both Woods and Mickelson. The two say they are deep into negotiations to play a winner-take-all...

Fleetwood best placed to end American dominance of majors

Jul 17, 2018

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Two rounds of 63, made eight months apart and on different sides of the Atlantic, are fuelling the belief that Tommy Fleetwood can end the American dominance of the majors at the British Open. The first came at the Dunhill Links Championship in October when he broke the course record at Carnoustie, where the world's oldest major will be staged this week. Then came another in the final round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills last month, which propelled him to within a stroke of eventual winner Brooks Koepka. Fleetwood, with his long, flowing hair and...

Spieth returns claret jug, faces tough task getting it back

Jul 17, 2018

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Jordan Spieth figured someone from the R&A would be waiting for him when he pulled into the parking lot at Carnoustie to take back the silver claret jug. Instead, he was part of a ceremony with enough pomp to drive home the point. His reign as British Open champion was over. "The traditions of the Open are very special," Spieth said, "even if you're on the wrong end of that one." This "tradition" is only a few years old, though typical of the august manner of this major, nothing was left to chance. Spieth was to arrive...

Serena Williams at No. 28 in WTA rankings, climbs 153 spots

Jul 17, 2018

LONDON — Serena Williams climbed 153 spots in the WTA rankings after her runner-up finish at Wimbledon, putting her back in the top 30. Williams is ranked 28th in the list published Monday. At Wimbledon, the former No. 1 was playing only her fourth tournament after returning from childbirth, but still reached the final before losing to Angelique Kerber of Germany. Kerber climbed six spots to No. 4, with Simona Halep holding onto the top ranking despite going out in the third round at the All England Club. Kevin Anderson climbed into the men's top 5 for the first time...

Fendrich on Tennis: Djokovic rejoins Federer, Nadal in Big 3

Jul 17, 2018

LONDON — What had gone from a Big 4 to a Big 2 is now back to a Big 3, with Novak Djokovic rejoining Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at the top of men's tennis. Each has been written off at some point. And each has won a major tournament in 2018: Djokovic's title at Wimbledon on Sunday, Nadal's at the French Open in June, and Roger Federer's at the Australian Open in January. "It's amazing," Djokovic's coach Marian Vajda said, "that those three got back like this." Maybe the U.S. Open, which starts in 1½ months, will break the...
