Visual 2000 Mobilizes Visual Solution On New Windows 7 Tablet PCs

MONTREAL — February 8, 2011 — Visual 2000 International Inc. announces certification of its popular
Visual® product lifecycle management solution for use with a stable of newly launched
Tablet PCs powered by Microsoft® Windows® 7. Testing of the fashion-focused PLM software was
conducted by Visual 2000 in January using the ExoPC Slate device. The ExoPC is an ultra-mobile,
11.6-inch touchscreen computer that utilizes the same interface and operating system found on most
business computers. In contrast to consumer-oriented tablets like the Apple iPad, this new breed of
Tablet PCs promise to be more appropriate for business content creators such as developers,
merchants, sourcing managers, and other professionals that need access to full business software

“While other mobile devices and phones may be fine for browsing web pages and viewing limited
management reports, we believe that there is much greater opportunity to leverage the power of PLM
by mobilizing its full capabilities through these innovative and full-featured Windows devices”,
explained Charles Benoualid, vice president of research and development for Visual 2000. “As the
first fashion PLM developer to embrace Tablet PCs, Visual 2000 affirms its commitment to delivering
the best possible solutions to the apparel and fashion industry.”

To certify its solution on the mobile platform, Visual 2000 tested the full range of Visual capabilities; including tech pack creation and management, internal and supplier
collaboration, line planning, calendaring and workflow, image and document management, and more. A
video presentation of the application running on the ExoPC Slate is available at

The ExoPC Slate features a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1080p graphics, and 802.11 b/g/n
Wi-Fi connectivity.  Windows Tablet PCs are also available from Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo,
Samsung, and other computer makers. Microsoft delivers mouse- and keyboard-free mobility through
Tablet PC capabilities found in the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions
of Windows 7.
