CGS BlueCherry to streamline Lucchese biz process
Aug '09
Computer Generated Solutions, Inc. (CGS) announces that legendary boot maker Lucchese Boot Company has selected CGS BlueCherry to replace legacy business software at its El Paso, Texas (USA) headquarters. The BlueCherry Enterprise Suite will be used by multiple teams to manage everything from new product development to manufacturing and customer delivery. Lucchese expects the new system will help streamline its entire concept-to-customer business process and increase overall operational efficiencies.

"Our old business system could not adapt to our changing needs," stated Tom Hough, Lucchese chief financial officer. "Even though it was heavily customized, it lacked industry-specific functionality and was not conducive to integration with other systems. With continued growth, we recognized the need for an industry-tailored system that could help us streamline our various business processes and provide us with more timely and accurate information for decision-support. BlueCherry provides all of that in a single, fully integrated package that has been proven capable of managing the complexities of our vertical footwear operation. Beyond the robust manufacturing capabilities of the system, we were impressed with the domain expertise of the CGS team."

In addition to the core financial, order and manufacturing management capabilities of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, the BlueCherry implementation at Lucchese will also include integrated product lifecycle management (PLM) and warehouse management system (WMS) software modules. Lucchese will also leverage BlueCherry's built-in Report Builder to simplify system reporting and support management by exception, Tool Box Builder to make in-house system configuration changes without the need for costly and time consuming programming, and Data Conversion tools to speed implementation of the new system.

"We are pleased with the opportunity to work with the Lucchese team," noted Paul Magel, senior vice president, CGS Application Solutions. "Together we look forward to the significant improvements and business-changing benefits that a best-of-breed, fully integrated business system will bring to their operation."

World-renowned for classic western boots and outstanding workmanship, Lucchese Boot Company is one of the most luxurious and exclusive boot companies in the world. The company celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2008. All Lucchese Classics, Lucchese 2000 and Lucchese 1883 boots are made 100% in the USA.

For twenty-five years, CGS has enabled global enterprises, regional companies and government agencies to drive breakthrough performance through technology.
