U.S. Protective Gear Manufacturer PGI Simplifies IT With Visual End2End

NEW YORK CITY — March 22, 2013 — Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that Green Lake,
Wisconsin-based PGI, Inc. has begun implementation of its Visual End2End™ enterprise solution. The
manufacturer of Cobra™ Flame Resistant Hoods, FireLine® Wildland Clothing, Sawbuck™ Chainsaw Chaps,
and other firefighting and protective gear brands is replacing multiple software systems with the
integrated, industry-focused solution across its product development, production, warehousing,
financial management, and other key operations. PGI expects the move to a unified IT platform to
eliminate redundancies and related errors, streamline critical processes, and increase overall
business efficiency.

According to PGI Corporate Secretary Renee Ristau, “We chose the Visual End2End solution
because it will enable us to manage our entire operation with a single, out-of-the-box system. This
will help us to eliminate the visibility and functional gaps of the past. Instead of struggling to
patch together information from a variety of sources, we will have a single, reliable source for
all the information we need to make faster and better informed business decisions.”

Visual End2End incorporates Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning
(ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Warehouse Management (WMS), Financial Management (FMS), and
other traditionally independent software capabilities into a fully integrated solution designed
specifically to manage the unique requirements of fashion, sewn products, and other softgoods

PGI expects to go-live on the new system in the third quarter of 2013 at the company
headquarters and peripheral office locations.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with PGI,” noted Farhat Awan, Visual 2000 USA Sales
Director. “Like many other growing companies, they will benefit greatly from the flexibility and
power of this uniquely comprehensive system. We look forward to helping PGI accomplish their goals
and take their business to the next level.”
