NGC (New Generation Computing) announced that R.G. Barry Corporation has selected NGC's e-SPS as its strategic software platform to manage overseas suppliers and trading partners. R. G. Barry, "the Dearfoams Company," is one of the world's leading developers and marketers of accessory footwear.

R.G. Barry has recently undergone a highly successful business turnaround that included a transition from captive manufacturing to a flexible business and sourcing model. As a result, the company sought a global sourcing solution that would work seamlessly between its domestic and international operations.

"We looked for a solution that would provide visibility and drive new efficiencies throughout the entire manufacturing process," said Glenn Evans, SVP of Sourcing and Logistics, R.G. Barry.

After reviewing software from a number of vendors, R.G. Barry selected e-SPS, an industry-leading, web-based global sourcing application that provides real-time visibility and enhanced collaboration throughout the product lifecycle. "e-SPS will be a key technology to help R.G. Barry improve our inventory turns, reduce lead times and increase speed to market," Evans said.

e-SPS will also enhance R.G. Barry's communications with overseas suppliers. "The fact that e-SPS is web-based was very important to us," said David Lindstrom, Director of Information Technology, R.G. Barry. "Today, most of our communication with overseas partners and suppliers is done via email. e-SPS provides a single global portal that will allow us to centralize communications in a single place and tie all communications to specific purchase orders."
