M Webster Holdings, owner of the popular Jigsaw, David Lawrence, and Marcs brands, has begun implementation of the Visual PLM.net software solution. Following a fast 8-10 week implementation, MWH expects the system to help its teams and suppliers to enhance creativity, speed new products to market, and streamline overall business processes.

Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that leading Australian fashion and accessories retail group M Webster Holdings Pty Ltd (http://www.websterholdings.com.au) has begun implementation of the Visual PLM.net® software solution at its Sydney (AUS) headquarters and Shanghai (CHN) sourcing and production offices. Owner of the popular Jigsaw, David Lawrence, and Marcs brands, M Webster Holdings (MWH) will deploy the product lifecycle management (PLM) software across more than 70 users in its design, merchandising, product development, sourcing, and other internal functional departments as well as with its vendor partners in China. MWH expects the new system to accelerate cycle times, increase visibility into business processes, and improve collaboration among internal teams and with suppliers.

According to MWH Group Operations Officer Lyle Hudson, “We saw in PLM an opportunity to centralize all product information and provide the process visibility our teams and vendors need to make faster and better informed business decisions. After careful evaluation, we chose Visual PLM.net because of its strong out-of-the-box capabilities and the flexibility it gives us to manage our specific business needs. Visual 2000’s deep retail industry expertise will clearly benefit us with a fast implementation and continued business and productivity improvements as we move forward.”

By leveraging the comprehensive set of standard, fashion-specific tools included in Visual PLM.net, MWH is advancing on a rapid implementation schedule with plans to go-live on the new software in December. Key vendor partners will be deployed in January with the balance coming online in the spring of 2011.

“We applaud the efforts of MWH as they work to improve their concept-to-consumer operations,” noted Charles Benoualid, vice president of research and development at Visual 2000. “The speed of their implementation validates our commitment to building industry tailored solutions that are comprehensive and easy to implement and use. We look forward to helping Webster as they achieve their ambitious goals.”
