Jerry Leigh implements NGC e-PLM software

NGC (New Generation Computing) announced that Jerry Leigh, a design-driven apparel company that develops licensed products for the nation's top retailers, has successfully implemented NGC's e-PLM software for Product Lifecycle Management.

Jerry Leigh selected e-PLM following a successful rollout of NGC's e-SPS software for Global Sourcing and Visibility. The apparel company uses e-SPS to control all facets of production – including P.O. management, production tracking, quality, and inbound tracking and visibility – for thousands of licensed products in four different divisions. The combination of e-PLM and e-SPS provides Jerry Leigh with a single, integrated solution that covers every step of the product lifecycle, from design concept through sourcing to receipt at the DC. The web-based solution centralizes information, improves collaboration, and streamlines workflows, for faster speed to market and enhanced communication throughout the global supply chain.

“Jerry Leigh selected e-PLM based on our success with the e-SPS rollout and the excellent support that we have received,” said Jeff Silver, vice president and CFO, Jerry Leigh. “NGC's West Coast support team proved to be very responsive, and NGC worked closely with our users to incorporate suggested modifications into the base software.”

“Some of the e-PLM features that were particularly attractive to us included version control on spec packs and a central repository for images and component masters,” Silver added. “In addition, having visibility to styles when they're in development will allow for early costing to ensure that we meet our profit goals for each style.”

Other benefits of e-PLM and e-SPS include the following:

• Faster speed to market. e-SPS is already helping Jerry Leigh improve production turnaround time, and e-PLM further extends productivity gains to the concept and design phases. e-PLM and e-SPS automatically generate triggers and alerts, to ensure that critical deadlines are met and that design and production problems are quickly resolved.
• Streamlined communications. e-PLM and e-SPS provide Jerry Leigh with a single, web-based platform that allows the company to instantly exchange and update information with supply chain partners around the world. All communications are tied to specific styles or purchase orders, which greatly enhances collaboration. Centralized data ensures that everyone views “a single version of the truth” throughout the supply chain at all times.
• Enhanced customer service. Jerry Leigh has built its business on superior customer service, and NGC's software will help the apparel company continue to respond to its customers' needs. “Jerry Leigh designs and develops merchandise for many of the world's most recognized brands and retailers, so quality and timing are critical to our success,” Silver added.

“NGC is pleased that Jerry Leigh chose our e-PLM solution to further extend the benefits of e-SPS,” said Alan Brooks, president, NGC. “Jerry Leigh's decision validates the strength of NGC's software, as well as our support and implementation team. We appreciate the close working relationship with Jerry Leigh, and we're proud to play a role in the company's ongoing success.”
