Leading Australian Retail Group Implementing PLM Solution From Visual 2000

MONTREAL, Canada — October  25, 2010 — Visual 2000 International Inc. announces that leading
Australian fashion and accessories retail group M Webster Holdings Pty Ltd 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

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.”
