BlueCherry receives positive rating in MarketScope for PLM in AFA

Computer Generated Solutions has received a "Positive" rating from leading industry analyst firm Gartner in its September 2009 MarketScope for PLM in Apparel, Footwear and Accessories report. The report covers the state of the market for product lifecycle management and sourcing solutions that serve this fast-paced industry sector. BlueCherry by CGS received the "positive" rating based on Gartner's independent evaluation of its product, market understanding, customer experience, offering strategy, business model, operations and overall viability.

According to Gartner's report, "For AFA organizations driven by shortening product life cycles, faster time to market and more rapid identification of products not performing, PLM and sourcing solutions are key requirements to manage increasing risk in new product launches, produce tighter forecasts of sales by line, address increased pressures to make the right decisions, and use offshore sourcing to keep costs low." The report also noted that, "Enterprise integration continues to be a key element in successful implementations. Tight integration among PLM, sourcing and ERP systems is important to ensure cost-effective execution of the product designs and plans."

“CGS is proud to be recognized in the PLM and sourcing space through this independent industry report," noted Paul Magel, senior vice president of application solutions at CGS. "After reviewing our PLM product for the first time, the analyst firm recognizes our commitment to both the soft goods industry and to our customers. We are delighted that--through this report--more companies will discover what the BlueCherry user community already knows: CGS delivers the most comprehensive business systems with the lowest total cost of ownership for its customers."

The Gartner report comes within days of the industry launch of BlueCherry Infinity, the company's newly re-architected suite of enterprise solutions built on the latest Microsoft technologies. Specifically, the new system:

• Was developed on the Microsoft .NET framework--including the Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation extensions;
• Leverages the latest version of the SQL Server database; and
• Delivers a familiar, Office-like user experience.

BlueCherry Infinity provides fully integrated, AFA-specific ERP, SCM, WMS, PLM, sourcing and BI solutions in a modular suite of web-based, multi-tiered applications. The BlueCherry PLM solution covers planning and design, specification management, sourcing, collaboration, workflow and time & action management.
