Men’s specialty retailer plans for expansion in coming years
MIAMI, Fla. — June 27, 2016 — NGC Software, a leading provider of fashion PLM, Retail Supply Chain Management and apparel ERP solutions, today announced that Destination XL Group, Inc. (DXL) is implementing NGC’s EZ-Ship Scan/Pack Solution. DXL will use EZ-Ship to reduce chargebacks and packing errors by validating the contents of each carton and shipment sent from the retailer’s factories.
The retailer, who also utilizes NGC’s Fashion PLM, is the largest omni-channel specialty retailer of big & tall men's apparel. DXL is planning to roll out EZ-Ship, a factory-level scan/pack solution with electronic data exchange (EDI), at a dozen factory locations.
DXL’s latest work with NGC builds on the success of its PLM implementation, which has helped streamline DXL’s design and sourcing operations, ensuring that DXL’s products meet the needs of its diverse customer base of larger men. NGC’s fashion PLM software has brought new efficiency to DXL’s design process. It enables much more frequent and timely communications with suppliers, while also reducing cost and improving product quality.
EZ-Ship integrates with DXL’s SCM, ERP and EDI systems and allows for shipments to multiple Distribution Centers directly from the factory. The solution supports unlimited ASN and label formats, providing remote shipping sites with the flexibility to use a standard import and export data set that easily integrates with any ERP, WMS or Distribution Center system.
