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.”

Museum of London displays fatberg on 24-hour livestream

Aug 14, 2018

LONDON — London's famous, festering fatberg lives on — and is getting its own livestream . The Museum of London says a chunk of oil, fat, diapers and baby wipes blasted out of a sewer last year is now part of its permanent collection. The museum said Tuesday that the "highly toxic" lump will be stored in a secure case and displayed online via a "fatcam" so that viewers can watch its changes. The fatberg was on display at the museum for several months this year, nestled inside transparent boxes to protect visitors from potentially deadly bacteria and the noxious...

Cooperstown stirs emotions for dad of young baseball player

Aug 14, 2018

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Two places have triggered tears of joy in my life: The Vatican and Cooperstown. I wasn't surprised when it happened in my mother's homeland while kneeling and praying in St. Peters as the nephew of a Roman Catholic priest and the great nephew of a Dominican nun. Even though I'm an emotional Italian-American, I did not expect to have my emotions tugged as they were last month in upstate New York. With my wife, our son, daughter and her friend, we broke up a nine-hour drive from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to Cooperstown into a two-day trip. We...

Baseball with signatures of 11 greats fetches $623,369

Aug 14, 2018

LOS ANGELES — How could a baseball artifact possibly top a ball signed by both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig? How about a ball signed by Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Tris Speaker, George Sisler, Walter Johnson, Connie Mack, Nap Lajoie, Eddie Collins and Pete Alexander, on the day they all entered the Baseball Hall of Fame? Such a ball just sold for $623,369, SCP auctions said Monday. That crushes the record of $345,000 for a signed baseball, set in 2013 for a Ruth-Gehrig ball. The seller was not identified, and the winner who outbid 28 other...

Mexico: Lopez Obrador expands plan for Yucatan tourist train

Aug 14, 2018

MEXICO CITY — Mexico's president-elect announced an even more ambitious proposal for a train on the Yucatan peninsula Monday that would link nearly all the region's main tourist draws and cost double or more than the previously announced figure. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had campaigned on building the tourist train from the beach resort city of Cancun down through Tulum and to the Mayan ruins of Palenque, 520 miles (830 kilometers) to the southwest. The new plan adds a western spur that could stop in the cities of Campeche, Merida and Valladolid — the latter near the famed ruins of...

VF, following millions of consumers, will shed its denim

Aug 14, 2018

NEW YORK — The company that makes Wrangler and Lee jeans is breaking off its denim division to focus on its fast-growing outdoor and activewear business as Americans swap out jeans for yoga pants. VF Corp. said Monday the non-denim division would include its other well-known brands, The North Face and Timberland, Altra, Icebreaker and Williamson-Dickie. The preference toward activewear has fueled growth at companies like Lululemon, Under Armour and Nike. Retailers like The Gap and Target have hopped aboard.
