NGC Software announced that Grupo Karim’s, a diversified global company with core businesses that include private-label apparel manufacturing, has selected NGC’s fashion PLM and Supply Chain Management (SCM) solution. Grupo Karim’s specializes in providing its customers and partners with high-quality services for apparel design and production in Asia, Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico.

Grupo Karim’s experienced several supply chain and productivity challenges prior to selecting NGC’s end-to-end PLM and SCM solution. “We were missing integration and collaboration on the same platform with all our manufacturing locations and departments,” said Luis Mejia, Executive Vice President, Grupo Karim’s. "We had no PLM software, and we were still using spreadsheets and isolated databases for certain processes. With Grupo Karim's growth, we recognized that we needed to be streamlined, fast and accurate in order to deliver the best quality products at competitive costs and shorter lead times."

"We had some experience using NGC as a vendor with several of our current customers, and we saw an opportunity to integrate with a single, comprehensive PLM and SCM solution. NGC's sales team and engineers showed a great willingness to work with Grupo Karim's and our customers, in order to integrate and share information within the same platform. It's a win-win for us and our customers," he continued.

With NGC's solutions, Grupo Karim's expects to improve productivity and reduce costs, while also providing better customer service throughout the entire product development and production process. According to Mejia, NGC's PLM and SCM will help the company shorten the total lead time from product concept to delivery at the customer's door. "We'll also be able to manage compliance and testing requirements under one platform for real-time access," he added.

"NGC is pleased to be working with Grupo Karim's," said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC. "Like so many NGC customers, Grupo Karim's realizes the benefits of a fully integrated, end-to-end PLM and Supply Chain Management solution, and we look forward to the implementation process."
