Supply & Demand Chain Executive Selects NGC as a 2019 SDCE 100 Award Winner


NGC recognized for its Andromeda PLM® deployment with Jockey International, Inc.

MIAMI—July 9, 2019 — New Generation Computing, Inc. (“NGC”), a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for product lifecycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM), quality control and vendor compliance, today announced that it was selected as a recipient of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2019 SDCE 100 Awards for the ninth consecutive year.

The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects that serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. The award spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value and achieve supply chain excellence.

This year, NGC was recognized for its work with Jockey International, Inc., a 143-year-old brand recognized around the world for its premium underwear and apparel. Jockey needed a common platform for all PLM-related elements, with one source of information for all departments and vendors. The brand sought to manage workflows in a global, collaborative environment to increase speed to market and manage lead times as effectively as possible. The company implemented NGC’s Andromeda PLM® to give users real-time visibility and control from product concept to customer availability.

Using Andromeda PLM, Jockey has decreased lead times by as much as two to eight weeks. Jockey has also seen significant operational improvements, thanks to process consolidation and streamlining, fewer clicks, and significant overall time savings with Andromeda PLM. Jockey can also evaluate, manage and report on vendor performance using the vendor management features in Andromeda®, which contributes to the company’s lead time reduction and allows it to quickly resolve any issues with vendors.

“NGC is proud to be recognized once again for our work in helping leading apparel brands and retailers like Jockey implement innovative solutions that improve product development and supply chain processes,” said Mark Burstein, president, NGC. “This is one of many examples of how Andromeda is helping companies streamline product development, reduce costs and quickly respond to customer demands.”
