Miami, Fla.—May 23, 2014—NGC announced that Vald’or Apparel is implementing NGC’s product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Shop Floor Control systems to bring a new level of efficiency and collaboration to its global operations. Vald’or manufactures private-label and branded apparel for leading brands; the company is headquartered in Coconut Creek, Fla., with an office and factory in Jordan and an additional factory opening in Haiti this year.
Vald’or selected NGC’s software to replace its outdated legacy solutions and support the company’s rapid growth. “Our business has grown tremendously, and we were not getting the support we needed from our current systems provider,” said Robert Rothbaum, president and CEO, Vald’or Apparel
“Our primary goal is to become more efficient,” Rothbaum continued, and he expects to improve efficiency at Vald’or in a number of key areas with NGC’s systems:
- Enhanced collaboration. “Without a centralized system, everyone works in siloed mini-systems that don’t communicate with the rest of the enterprise,” Rothbaum said. “NGC’s software provides a platform for our whole company to collaborate throughout our global enterprise.”
- Exception management. NGC’s systems include workflow calendars and exception management that can help drive better efficiency throughout the company. Exception dashboards automatically notify all parties when an event is late or due, and all communications take place within the system, with collaboration that is tied to specific styles or purchase orders.
- Better raw materials management. With NGC’s fashion PLM and ERP systems, Vald’or can gain better understanding of pending or shipped orders, product availability, and raw materials requirements. “Our systems will be automated, accurate, and we will know exactly what raw materials to order,” Rothbaum said.
- Improved factory efficiency. Efficiency improvements extend to the factory floor. NGC’s Shop Floor Control can help Vald’or balance its sewing lines, and improve the performance and efficiency of individual factory workers.
