Ramp Logistics to Implement NGC’s RedHorse® Apparel ERP System


Leading West Coast Logistics and Warehouse Company Will Provide RedHorse  As a Strategic Business Solution for its Customers  

(MIAMI, FEBRUARY 25, 2009) NGC® (New Generation Computing®) today announced that Ramp Logistics, a rapidly growing West Coast warehouse and logistics company, has selected NGC’s RedHorse apparel ERP software.  Ramp Logistics will provide RedHorse as an additional offering to its customer base of high-end apparel, footwear and accessory brands, allowing smaller companies to access the power of a complete ERP solution that is designed for the apparel industry.
“Our customers are small high-growth brands that really understand the fashion and apparel business, but they typically lack the sophisticated business infrastructure of larger companies, such as an ERP system,” said Darren Crawford, CEO, Ramp Logistics.   “By making RedHorse available to our customers, Ramp Logistics can provide the systems they need to help their companies grow: accounting, purchasing, order management, EDI, allocations, inventory tracking, and much more.  With RedHorse, Ramp Logistics can provide infrastructure for businesses that have never had it – in a sense, acting as a business incubator to help our customers accelerate their growth.”
Ramp Logistics selected NGC and RedHorse after reviewing solutions from 10 other vendors.  “We’ve seen other brands that have implemented NGC’s software, and they have been very successful,” Crawford said.  “No other software vendor came close to NGC in terms of clean, smooth software implementations.  We’re excited to work with NGC – RedHorse will give Ramp Logistics a competitive advantage by enabling us to offer a mission-critical business solution to our clients.”
RedHorse is a fully integrated, apparel-specific ERP platform, with executive dashboards that allow users to easily view real-time business data and monitor Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as sales, profits, inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other critical business functions.  RedHorse is part of NGC’s SQL Series, a fully integrated, end-to-end suite of solutions that also includes e-SPS® for global sourcing and visibility and e-PLM® for Product Lifecycle Management.
“NGC is excited about our relationship with Ramp Logistics, as it gives us an opportunity to train a new generation of users on the RedHorse platform,” said Alan Brooks, president, NGC.  “As these companies continue to grow and ultimately require their own ERP system, they’ll be thoroughly familiar with RedHorse, which will give NGC a big advantage.”
