Nov '09
NGC(New Generation Computing)announced that STONY APPAREL, a branded and private label manufacturer of girls and junior apparel for some of the nation's largest retailers, is implementing NGC's Global Enterprise System software suite, including e-PLM for Product Lifecycle Management, e-SPS for Global Sourcing & Visibility, and RedHorse ERP for EDI,Customer Order Processing, Inventory Management, Shipping and Financial Accounting.

The implementation is currently underway, and STONY APPAREL is quickly realizing benefits even in the early stages of the rollout. For example, NGC helped STONY APPAREL quickly implement the EDI module in RedHorse. As a result, STONY was able to meet a complex EDI requirement from a Tier 1 retailer and book a very large order – something that wouldn't have been possible without the new software.

STONY APPAREL selected NGC's software suite to help manage the company's rapid growth, streamline business processes and provide global visibility. STONY sought an “end to end” ERP, PLM and Global Sourcing software solution to transform its design, customer service, production and shipping processes for the hundreds of styles produced each month – and NGC's integrated solutions were a perfect fit.

“We needed an integrated system that could tie everything together, and that is why we selected NGC,” said Richard Swartz, CFO, STONY APPAREL. “The fact that we could receive local implementation support through NGC's West Coast office was also important, as NGC's highly skilled technical professionals can work closely with us to ensure that we receive rapid ROI.”

When the software implementation is complete, STONY APPAREL expects to see a number of benefits including:
- Improved collaboration. NGC's PLM and global sourcing software provides end-to-end visibility throughout the design and production process, and the web-based solution enables centralized, web-based communications and collaboration between STONY and its factories in Mexico, Central America and China. The software's calendars help STONY's employees and suppliers manage the production workflow, and alerts are automatically triggered whenever deadlines aren't met – allowing production problems to be quickly identified and resolved.

- Better margins. When implemented, NGC's software will greatly improve STONY's design costing processes, allowing the apparel company to quickly provide its retail customers with pricing and ensure that target margins can be met.

- Elimination of redundancies. With NGC's integrated solution, STONY APPAREL will be able to eliminate redundant data entries.
“It will be easier to copy and create new styles without doing double entries, and that affects everything from Bill of Materials through costing and accounting,” said Tracy Gale, director of technical services and technical design, STONY APPAREL.

- Enhanced customer service. e-PLM, e-SPS and RedHorse willenable STONY to deliver the highest level of customer service as its business grows, allowing the company to continue to respond rapidly to customer requests, without sacrificing turnaround time or quality.
