NGC (New Generation Computing) announced that Topson Downs, a private label manufacturer of women's and children's apparel for the industry's leading retailers, has selected NGC's e-PLM and e-SPS software as an integrated, end-to-end solution for PLM and global sourcing.

e-PLM and e-SPS will provide a strategic platform for Topson Downs' continued growth, while centralizing communications, streamlining operations, eliminating redundancies and transforming overall efficiency. While Topson Downs has experienced exponential growth in recent years, the company faced challenges in managing the communications and production flow of its high-volume, rapid response apparel business. Topson Downs began searching for a solution that could help it better manage the product lifecycle across multiple divisions and product lines – and the search led directly to NGC.

Together, e-PLM and e-SPS form the industry's first, most widely installed and most comprehensive solution encompassing the entire product lifecycle for apparel, footwear and accessories. e-PLM and e-SPS cover every step of the complex design/production process – from design concept through sourcing and product quality, to receipt at the DC – with a web-based solution that centralizes information, enhances collaboration, and streamlines workflows to transform the product lifecycle.

NGC's software will enable Topson Downs to provide fast turnaround, become a more agile company, and maintain the highest design and production quality standards for its customers, without adding additional staff. “In today's economy, it's critical for apparel companies to do more with less, and to streamline operations and improve efficiency wherever possible,” said Jill Spielman, CFO, Topson Downs. “NGC's software enables us to do that, while also improving gross margins and lowering costs.”

With e-PLM and e-SPS, Topson Downs can:

Gain speed to market. NGC's web-based, centralized information management will eliminate islands of information and redundant data, ensuring that everyone involved in design, production and manufacturing has the latest information. “With NGC's software, everyone can go to one place and get all the information they need,” Spielman said. As a result, Topson Downs can shorten the product lifecycle, allowing the company to postpone style decisions until the last minute. With real-time visibility and collaboration, Topson Downs can also respond quickly to customer changes, communicate information to the factories and make adjustments as needed at the factory level.

Streamline operations, improve efficiency across all divisions. With e-PLM and e-SPS, Topson Downs can standardize its procedures across every division and eliminate any inefficiencies in the decision/production processes. By replacing inefficient supply chain management tools such as spreadsheets and emails with NGC's web-based solution, Topson Downs will improve productivity at every level, from design to production.
