New Generation Computing (NGC), a provider of cloud-based solutions for product lifecycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM), quality control and vendor compliance, has announced that California Manufacturing Company, a producer of outerwear, sportswear and uniforms, has selected its Andromeda cloud platform for apparel and fashion PLM and SCM.
California Manufacturing Company will implement the NGC Andromeda PLM and Andromeda SCM solutions for both the Canyon Guide Outfitters and Dakota Grizzly brands, providing the company with an integrated, seamless solution for all its lines of business, said the company in a press release.
Based in St. Louis, California Manufacturing Company outgrew its homegrown solution and needed innovative technology that would enable the company to scale its business and accelerate time to market. It needed a PLM and SCM solution that could provide the configurability and flexibility required. After an extensive evaluation, the company selected NGC’s Andromeda PLM and SCM solutions because of their flexibility and advanced features, combined with the industry knowledge and experience of NGC’s team.
“Andromeda gives us all the features we need — product development, PO management, production tracking, logistics, vendor collaboration and workflow management,” said Greg Bailey, CIO, California Manufacturing Company. “With Andromeda, it’s one-stop shopping that takes product development all the way from inspiration of the product, to fit and distribution.”
“NGC knew exactly what we were looking for and understood our business from our first contact,” added Bailey. “We didn’t get that from the other solution providers, and it was definitely a plus for NGC. They’re a strong fit with our culture and the way that California Manufacturing Company does business.”
“NGC is excited to work with California Manufacturing Company,” said Mark Burstein, president, NGC. “Our Andromeda solution will have a quick impact on improving the company’s productivity and efficiency.”
