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.”

UK PM May and her Brexit vision get little sympathy from EU

Jul 20, 2018

LONDON — Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May found little sympathy Friday from the European Union's 27 other nations in her quest for more flexibility in Brexit talks, as the time to negotiate an amicable divorce between Britain and the EU dwindles down. May's government published a white paper last week with long-awaited proposals for Britain's relations with the EU after it leaves the bloc, seeking to keep it in a free market for goods with the EU while having a more distant relationship for services. EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier on Friday listed many potential problems with the...

Japan Parliament OKs law to allow up to 3 casino resorts

Jul 20, 2018

TOKYO — Japan's parliament on Friday approved a contentious law allowing up to three casino resorts to open in this wealthy nation and possibly lure more foreign visitors. The bill was approved and enacted into law at the upper house after bulldozing by the ruling bloc. The lower house passed it last month. It adds rules of operation to a law on casino promotion passed in 2016. The enactment of the "integrated resorts" law means casinos can operate at resorts that include hotels, conference rooms and shopping malls in the mid-2020s. Supporters say casinos can attract more and wealthier tourists....

Japan's Abe: US auto tariffs will cost US jobs, harm economy

Jul 20, 2018

TOKYO — Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned the U.S. on Friday that higher tariffs on auto imports would backfire and harm not only America's jobs and economy but also devastate the global economy. Abe told a news conference marking the end of a Diet session that Japan's auto and auto parts industry has never threatened America's national security and it never will. Abe said he will keep explaining that to Trump. Trump has ordered the U.S. government to investigate if higher tariffs on foreign-made vehicles and auto parts are justified on national security grounds. Japan's auto industry has for...
