CGS, a provider of business applications, enterprise learning, and outsourcing services, has announced that Marie Claire Boutiques, a Canadian fashion retailer, has selected the BlueCherry enterprise suite to manage its design processes, and the BlueCherry Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and sourcing suite to develop its private labels efficiently.

With extensive expertise and resources in the fashion apparel and footwear market, the CGS team of experts and its BlueCherry PLM suite will support Marie Claire in streamlining its design and sourcing process resulting in better speed to market and inventory management across all divisions.

Marie Claire Boutiques was seeking to transform its legacy solution and link to its retail point of sale (POS) system in an effort to streamline workflows, reduce costs and improve profitability. With extensive expertise and resources in the apparel market, the CGS BlueCherry Suite will help Marie Claire to bring its private label business to market faster and offer better visibility to its products, allowing for less markdowns and better profitability.

CGS’s BlueCherry PLM is a best-in-class product lifecycle management solution for fashion and consumer lifestyle products companies, providing a comprehensive set of tools to manage the entire product lifecycle. In addition to core product data management (PDM), bill of materials (BOM), technical specifications and other commonly available PLM tools, BlueCherry PLM draws from its enterprise solution heritage to deliver a broader set of integrated line planning, design, product development, sourcing and production and import capabilities to meet the demands of today's rapidly changing marketplace.

Claude Lanouette, vice president, finance, Marie Claire said, “Marie Claire has a well-established private label and several locations throughout Canada, but we needed to efficiently and effectively manage the apparel lifecycle. With CGS we’re assured of expert industry knowledge and proficient resources. Implementing the BlueCherry Suite, will help us manage our design and sourcing process throughout our Canadian operations as well as our overseas suppliers.”

Recognised among top fashion organisations for excellent support and a fully integrated solution, BlueCherry enables Marie Claire to operate their supply chain operations, including design, sourcing, planning, and logistics on one platform.

Paul Magel, president, business applications and technology outsourcing division, CGS said, “With our extensive supply chain apparel experience, CGS understands Marie Claire Boutiques’ needs to manage operations across its brands. We are excited to welcome Marie Claire to the BlueCherry community and provide the company end-to-end visibility of design and sourcing process, improving speed to market with integration to POS.” (GK)
