Caché, a nationwide specialty retailer of sophisticated women's sportswear and dresses, has selected NGC's e-PLM and e-SPS software. Caché will implement NGC's (New Generation Computing)PLM and global sourcing solution as its strategic platform to improve speed to market, collaboration and efficiency throughout the retailer's product development and production process.

NGC's web-based software provides Caché with an end-to-end solution that encompasses the retailer's entire product lifecycle – including assortment planning; financial line planning;costing and pre-production; management of purchase orders and Work in Progress; and quality control. NGC's software also includes raw materials management, which will allow Caché to closely manage the purchase and usage of all raw material inventories located around the world. With NGC's raw materials management capabilities, Caché will be able to instantly access detailed information on raw materials in all locations worldwide at all times – a key to improving efficiency and controlling costs.

e-PLM and e-SPS streamline product design and production through centralized data that provides a “single version of the truth” and a web-based portal that greatly simplifies communications and collaboration throughout the global supply chain. The software's automated calendars automatically trigger alerts when events and activities don't happen on time – ensuring that key deadlines are met and ultimately shortening the design/production process.

“NGC's software will facilitate real-time collaboration with our vendors about styles and production orders, and will enable Caché to deliver the highest quality goods while also controlling costs and improving turnaround time,” said Joanne Marselle, Vice President of Planning and Production for Caché.

“The advanced tools such as factory profiling, vendor scorecards, and exception and milestone reporting offered by NGC's e-PLM will allow Caché to align itself with best suppliers, produce more efficiently, and improve margins,” said Ashok Gandhi, Vice President of Finance for Caché.

“Caché is a premier women's specialty retailer, and NGC is excited that Caché has selected e-PLM and e-SPS,” said Alan Brooks, President, NGC. “Today's announcement underscores the fact that, even in the midst of a recession, NGC has continued to add some of the industry's most recognized retailers and brands as customers. It's a testimony to the strength of NGC's core PLM and global sourcing solutions, and a tribute to the hard work, experience and dedication of NGC employees around the world.”

Caché is a nationwide, mall-based specialty retailer of sophisticated sportswear and social occasion dresses targeting style-conscious women who have a youthful attitude and are self-confident. Caché currently operates 290 stores, primarily situated in central locations in high traffic, upscale malls in 43 states, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

NGC (New Generation Computing) delivers fast, proven ROI. Every day, the industry's best brands and retailers increase gross margins, reduce the cost of goods sold, improve speed to market and product quality, and manage CPSIA compliance with NGC software.
