Apparel manufacturer to use NGC's solutions for ERP, global sourcing and PLM
Miami July 20, 2006 Apparel manufacturer Maggy London International Ltd. has selected New Generation Computing Inc.'s (NGC's) RedHorse, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution; e-SPS, a Web-based integrated global sourcing solution; and e-PDM, a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for their worldwide operations across all Maggy London divisions.
NGC said its products are designed specifically for the sewn products industry (Apparel, Footwear, Retailers, Brand Management and Home Furnishings) and are used by manufacturers, brand managers, retailers and importers to manage the design, sourcing and production of raw material and finished products.
Maggy London will install RedHorse, e-SPS and e-PDM at its New York headquarters and overseas offices to help streamline core business processes, including global sourcing, supply chain and calendar management, technical and quality assurances, inbound logistics, and inventory control. Product installation will begin with the Maggy London brand and then eventually be installed across all eight Maggy London divisions and affiliates.
"We selected NGC's solutions based on the company's focus on the apparel industry and experience in understanding our business needs and operational processes," said Jerry Sholtz, corporate senior vice president, Finance and Administration, Maggy London International Ltd. "NGC is staffed with professionals and technologists that come from the apparel business and are ready to hit the ground running."
Lee Polsky, corporate executive vice president, Global Sourcing and Supply Chain Management, Maggy London International Ltd., added, "Maggy London faces unique IT and process challenges as each of our divisions currently maintain their own system for executing its functions from design through completion of production into our DC. This creates redundancy in data entry as well as operational inefficiencies in a company such as ours with multiple styles, fabrics and sourcing options. We expect NGC's solutions to replace our various formats of spreadsheets and minimize the onslaught of daily e-mails. We are confident that NGC's various solutions will provide us, our offices, and factories with complete global visibility and transparency throughout our entire supply chain."
NGC said its RedHorse solution offers functionality throughout its various modules consisting of: Customer Order Processing, EDI Information System, Invoicing and Accounts Receivable, Finished Goods Inventory Control, Components Inventory, Purchasing and Receiving, Accounts Payable, General Ledger, Import Management, Remote Plant Management, Locator System and Screen Printing and Embroidery.
NGC's e-SPS is a Global Sourcing solution that consists of multiple software modules: e-PDM, e-RFQ's & Bids, e-Pre-Production, e-Production Tracking, e-Collaboration, e-Pack, e-Shipment Tracking, e-Exceptions, e-Quality, e-Reporting and Event Tracking Management System.
NGC's e-PDM is a PLM solution designed to increase speed-to-market and facilitate collaborative global communication by enabling companies to organize and share common business processes and information around the world.
