Computer Generated Solutions Inc (CGS) announces that Bollman Hat Company has selected CGS BlueCherry to replace its legacy business software system. BlueCherry promises to provide Bollman with the enterprise-wide information platform needed to support continued global growth and achieve previously unattainable levels of operational efficiencies in multiple office locations across the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and China, making the implementation a truly global rollout.

By providing a worldwide view of business operations, the new system will enable Bollman to gain visibility into business processes, integrate and collaborate with global suppliers and customers, and increase overall productivity and competitiveness.

“Sharing accurate and relevant information across our business and with partners is essential to accomplishing our key corporate strategies,” noted Dave Huber, Bollman chief financial and operations officer. “Our old systems simply could not provide the platform and connectivity we need as we move forward. In CGS, we found the industry expertise, product capabilities, commitment to results and corporate longevity we were seeking to support our current and future growth around the world.”

Key among the integrated BlueCherry software modules that will be implemented over the next six months are enterprise resource planning (ERP), product lifecycle management (PLM), electronic data exchange (EDI), third-party logistics (3PL) integration, and financial management.

These and other BlueCherry software capabilities will replace current 'islands' of automation and data with a single, integrated business solution. The resulting easy and immediate access to information will enable Bollman teams to make better informed and timelier business decisions at every step of the concept-to-delivery product lifecycle. This integration and access also extends to business partners, including customers, suppliers, logistics and distribution providers.

“We are delighted with the opportunity to work with such a fine organization as Bollman Hat Company,” commented Paul Magel, senior vice president, CGS Application Solutions. “We are honored that their thorough system evaluation led them to CGS, both for our industry-specific solutions and the company and people that stand behind them.”

Founded in 1868, Bollman Hat Company is America's oldest and owner of the Bailey, Country Gentleman, Eddy Bros., Betmar, Plaza Suite, Helen Kaminski, and Ignite brands. Bollman is also the exclusive licensee for Kangol and Timberland headwear. The employee-owned company maintains offices in four continents and markets a wide range of headwear and other accessories in over 50 countries.
