Collegiate Fashion Designer Vesi Inc to Implement NGC’s Extended PLM and ERP Software to Improve Collaboration and Streamline Business Processes
(MIAMI, JUNE 1, 2011) NGC® Software today announced that Vesi Incorporated, a designer and manufacturer of better collegiate sportswear, has selected NGC’s Extended PLM and ERP software as an integrated system for supply chain management. Vesi, which has elevated game-day apparel to a fashionable lifestyle collection for men and women, will implement NGC’s PLM and ERP software across all of its brands in order to provide transparency throughout the company, improve collaboration with overseas vendors, and streamline reporting and business processes.
Easy to use, flexible reporting capabilities were a key factor in Vesi’s selection of NGC’s ERP. “We needed to provide our key personnel with easier access to our ERP system, and our entire team appreciated the user-friendliness of NGC’s new ERP system,” said Dale Davidson, vice president and COO, Vesi Incorporated. “NGC’s ERP will improve transparency, both internally and with our external vendors, and it provides better information flow with all the reporting enhancements.”
With NGC’s Extended PLM software, Vesi will be able to improve collaboration with its trading partners, while streamlining the design-production process. “One of our biggest challenges over the years has been communication with our overseas vendors,” Davidson said. “The lack of consistent transparency between our vendor partners and ourselves in regard to Time and Action calendars has just become too cumbersome to accommodate. Furthermore, the elimination of data entry functions by transferring information directly from the PLM system to the ERP software was very enticing.”
Vesi had experience using NGC’s first-generation ERP and turned to NGC again when selecting its new ERP and PLM systems. “Our experience with NGC is the reason why no other ERP/PLM vendor was chosen,” Davidson said. “When it comes to systems, the primary concern for our business is the ability to have a vendor that I can totally trust in regard to implementation and support. We have been a customer of NGC for over 10 years, and in terms of customer service and technical support, they have always – I repeat, always – exceeded expectations.”
“NGC appreciates the long-time working relationship with Vesi, and we’re glad to bring important new reporting and collaboration capabilities to Vesi through NGC’s latest ERP and Extended PLM solutions,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales and marketing, NGC.
