Computer Generated Solutions Inc (CGS) salutes customer Priscilla of Boston on being named as one of the apparel industry's Top Innovators of 2009. The luxury bridal gown and accessories company will be featured along with other recipients in the May issue of Apparel magazine for their leadership, resourcefulness, use of cutting edge technology, and unique business partnerships and strategies.

A major factor supporting the recognition as an innovation leader is the company's recent implementation of the CGS BlueCherry PLM software solution, which has enabled Priscilla of Boston to execute faster and more efficiently, while also improving communication and collaboration with business partners.

"As our business expanded and grew, we knew that we had to become more innovative in the way we did business," noted Louise Budd, technology director at Priscilla of Boston. "BlueCherry PLM allows us to consistently deliver on-time or ahead of schedule. Even with our expanded product lines and more styles, we have halved the amount of time it takes us to produce tech packs without adding staff.

Our designers, merchants, developers and production teams are now in sync because they have the information they need, when they need it, all from a single system. We are spending less time on non-value added things like creating and searching spreadsheets, making photocopies and passing around paperwork. This frees-up more time to be creative, something that our designers greatly appreciate."

In business since 1945, Priscilla of Boston has experienced significant growth in recent years and now manages six luxury bridal lines with all gowns made to order. The company has transitioned from a single location in Boston to a global company with design and product development teams in New York and production being carried out through global business partners. By making all product information accessible and up-to-date, the BlueCherry PLM system enables the company and its suppliers to streamline business processes and make timelier and better informed decisions throughout the product lifecycle.

"We are delighted to see Priscilla of Boston recognized as the innovation leader that they are," commented Paul Magel, senior vice president, CGS Application Solutions. "Their accomplishments with BlueCherry PLM are particularly impressive considering the high level of product detail, quality and construction standards, and made-to-order business requirements. We are proud to play a role in their continued success."
