NGC announced that Sport Obermeyer and Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits have been named as 2014 Top Innovators by Apparel Magazine for their successful implementations of NGC’s fashion software solutions.
 
Apparel Magazine’s annual Top Innovator awards recognize apparel retailers, brands and manufacturers who have demonstrated exceptional deployments of new technology in unique ways that have improved their business.
 
Sport Obermeyer, a popular skiwear apparel company based in Aspen, Colorado, won as a result of its rapid deployment of NGC’s Global Enterprise Suite. Sport Obermeyer replaced its enterprise systems with NGC’s software — including fashion PLM, Supply Chain Management, apparel ERP and Warehouse Management systems — in only 4 months, an extraordinary accomplishment. NGC’s systems improved gross margins by approximately 14 percent in the first year alone, and the solutions are on track to deliver ROI (Return on Investment) in only 21 months, according to Gregory Bannister, chief operating officer, Sport Obermeyer.
 
New York-based Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits, a leading importer of quality children’s and women’s apparel, was recognized as a Top Innovator based on its implementation of NGC’s fashion PLM and Supply Chain Management software. NGC’s software has played a key role in helping Fashion Avenue reduce product development time and achieve faster speed to market.
 
“PLM and Supply Chain Management are most effective when integrated in an end-to-end process,” said Austin Mallis, VP of operations, Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits. “For us to be successful we need software that takes us from start to finish in the product lifecycle, and NGC’s solution allows us to do that.”
 
“Each year the Apparel Top Innovators highlights the fashion industry’s most successful technology implementations, and NGC is honored to have two of our customers recognized this year,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D for NGC. “Sport Obermeyer and Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits have demonstrated exceptional leadership and innovation, and we congratulate them on their accomplishments.”
