NGC's software to improve Ivory's supply chain agility

NGC (New Generation Computing) announced that Ivory International, a private label manufacturer of men's and women's apparel for leading retailers, has selected NGC's e-PLM and e-SPS software to provide an integrated, end-to-end solution for PLM and global sourcing.

Together, e-PLM and e-SPS form the industry's first, most widely installed and most comprehensive solution encompassing the entire product lifecycle for apparel, footwear and accessories. e-PLM and e-SPS cover every step of the complex design/production process – from design concept through sourcing and product quality, to receipt at the DC – with a web-based solution that centralizes information, enhances collaboration, and streamlines workflows to transform the product lifecycle.

“When it came to selecting a strategic partner for PLM and global sourcing, NGC was the logical choice,” said Roger Mayerson, executive vice president of product development and global sourcing, Ivory International. “I had experience implementing e-PLM and e-SPS prior to joining Ivory International, and NGC's software proved to be a best-in-class solution. I know firsthand the power of e-PLM and e-SPS to improve supply chain efficiency, speed to market and quality, while also driving down costs.”

NGC's software will enable Ivory International to provide faster turnaround for its customers, which include many of the world's best-known apparel and general merchandise retailers. “In today's challenging retail climate, it's more important than ever for us to deliver high-quality products on time and at the right price, and to provide the highest possible level of service to our retailers,” Mayerson said. “NGC's software will enable us to do that.”

e-PLM and e-SPS will help Ivory International manage its vendors around the world and will allow the company to:
• Design closer to the trends. By shortening the product lifecycle and improving workflows and supply chain efficiency, NGC's software will enable Ivory International to postpone style decisions until the last minute. This will allow the company to design closer to the trends and take advantage of fast-changing consumer preferences.

• Improve supply chain agility. By replacing inefficient supply chain management tools such as spreadsheets and emails with NGC's web-based solution, Ivory International can develop a highly responsive, agile supply chain. With real-time visibility and collaboration, the company can quickly react to the latest sales and merchandising data from its customers, communicate information to the factories and make adjustments as needed at the factory level.

• Enable future growth. e-PLM and e-SPS will easily scale to meet Ivory International's future growth, allowing the company to quickly expand its business to meet increased demand from its customers.

“Ivory International has an impressive customer base of leading retailers, and e-PLM and e-SPS will provide a strategic supply chain solution that can help take the company's business to the next level,” said Alan Brooks, president, NGC. “NGC is excited to be working with Roger Mayerson, and we look forward to a successful partnership.”
