NGC’s Andromeda platform will help Rip Curl accelerate time to market and ensure all departments across the globe are on the same page in real time. Rip Curl will also be able to automate many of its processes to provide complete visibility and control from product concept to customer delivery.
“We are excited to work with Rip Curl and help make a difference in how its global team collaborates with vendors,” said Mark Burstein, president, NGC. “NGC’s Andromeda PLM is created specifically for fashion brands and retailers like Rip Curl, and we look forward to helping the company transform its supply chain to accelerate product development and delivery.”
Based in Torquay, Australia, Rip Curl is a designer, manufacturer and retailer of high-tech surfing sportswear and a broad spectrum of accompanying products, including wetsuits, boardshorts, watches, apparel and travel gear for both men and women. Rip Curl, one of the largest surfing companies in the world, strives to be the ‘Ultimate Surfing Company’ always innovating and pushing surfing to new levels.
For more than 15 years, Rip Curl’s legacy supply chain software solution created a siloed environment that required each global office to have its own database and unique ways of working across products. To accelerate product design and sourcing for Rip Curl’s fashion and performance collections, the company searched the market for a single collaborative platform to connect its global network and seamlessly integrate ERP data to increase visibility and efficiency.
“It is important we continue to push the limits and innovate in both the products we offer consumers as well as in how we do business,” said Milan Thompson, group general manager of technical products, Rip Curl. “We saw a great opportunity to work more efficiently and collaboratively with modern, advanced systems to help streamline our global processes.”
“NGC understands the challenges we have as a global business and the opportunities available to us with a modern system in place,” said Heather Evans, project manager, Rip Curl. “We are excited to operate in a highly collaborative environment on a single platform to help bring together both our internal and external partners across the global supply chain.”
NGC is leading provider of digital supply chain solutions for retailers and fashion brands. (PC)
