(MIAMI JUNE 25, 2009) NGC® (New Generation Computing®) today announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has named NGC a winner of the 2009 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 award, “Supply Chain Saves the Enterprise.”

Supply & Demand Chain Executive evaluated nearly 250 companies before selecting this year’s winners. The awards highlight supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers respond to the downturn and, more importantly, position themselves for growth ahead.  The awards recognize NGC’s leadership in helping supply chain executives position their companies to meet today’s urgent business imperatives.

NGC’s innovative work in helping retailers and manufacturers respond to the newly enacted CPSIA legislation was a key reason for the company’s inclusion in the 2009 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 awards.  NGC is the first apparel-specific software company to offer a solution that helps companies comply with the complex, costly regulations of the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act). NGC® also won based on the strength of its end-to-end solutions for PLM (e-PLM®), Global Sourcing (e-SPS®) and ERP (RedHorse®) and its long track record of successful implementations for leading apparel, fashion, footwear and retail companies.

“NGC is honored to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as one of the industry’s leading supply chain software providers,” said Alan Brooks, president, NGC.  “NGC solutions are playing a critical role in helping our customers weather the current economic storm, and this latest award further validates NGC’s market leadership in PLM and Global Sourcing solutions.”
