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.”

Aug 22, 2018

LOS ANGELES — Even when the Cardinals run into each other, they can't lose. Yadier Molina and Marcell Ozuna slugged two-run homers and St. Louis overcame a lack of communication in the outfield to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Tuesday night. The Cardinals improved to a major league-best 16-4 in August and moved atop the NL wild-card standings by a half-game over Milwaukee. They also climbed to 2 ½ games back of the NL Central-leading Cubs. "We're cooking on all cylinders right now," winning pitcher Luke Weaver (7-11) said. "We feel very confident about where we're at.

Reddick's HR, rookie's poise help Astros beat Seattle, 3-2

Aug 22, 2018

SEATTLE — Houston manager A.J. Hinch knows his pitching staff can throw good fastballs. However, it is the change-of-direction pitches that bring a smile to his face. Rookie left-hander Framber Valdez won in his big-league debut, and Josh Reddick homered to give the Astros the lead for good as they beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Tuesday night. Reddick's tiebreaking home run in the fourth inning put the Astros ahead 2-1, and Yuli Gurriel added an RBI single in the sixth for a two-run lead. Valdez, called up from Triple-A Fresno earlier in the Tuesday, gave the ballclub a lift...

Hawaii and NY take different approaches to LLWS pressure

Aug 22, 2018

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Baseball looks like it comes easily to Hawaii's Aukai Kea. Case in point, Honolulu's first game of the Little League World Series, when Kea slugged a walk-off home run after tossing 6 1/3 shutout innings. But even he isn't afraid to admit it — playing on national television and meeting major league players can be quite daunting. "This whole tournament, this whole journey has been really nerve-wracking because our faces are all over the world and you never know who's watching," 12-year-old Kea said. "You don't want to mess up in front of them," said his...

Aug 22, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. — Khris Davis is right on the cusp of a third straight 40-homer season and just reached 100 RBIs for the third time in as many years with the Athletics, and he is still aiming for far more. The playoffs are the primary focus as he clears the fences at a remarkable rate. Davis homered for the second straight night to back Brett Anderson's gem, and Oakland blanked the Texas Rangers again 6-0 Tuesday night. Davis hit a two-run shot in the seventh for No. 38 of 2018, his fourth home run in three games and ninth in...
