The new version offers a new graphical look to reports, enhancements to its time-and-action calendars and event tracking functionality system, a new executive reporting tool and a new quality-control module, according to the provider.

"e-SPS provides users with the visibility they need to identify and solve problems that are prevalent in the global production of apparel," said Alan Brooks, president of New Generation Computing.

Brooks asserted that the new solution can help users reduce their global communication costs, collaborate with trading partners worldwide, monitor and maintain quality control of their production, have better reporting and communication of the production process, and streamline the entire production process from distribution of the production order to product delivery.
