Meet with NGC at NRF and Enable the Digital Supply Chain in 2018

A new year means new opportunities, and in 2018, new opportunities can be found by enabling the Digital Supply Chain. That means retailers and fashion brands must embrace solutions that enable the Digital Supply Chain and help them thrive in today’s tough business climate. In fact, an important research study from McKinsey & Co found that digitization is a major priority despite its low maturity rate in the apparel sourcing industry: 76% of executives surveyed said digitization will lead to a significant reduction of lead time from assortment planning to first touchpoint in the market – “reducing their lead time by 2 – 8 weeks to achieve the agility needed in a demand-driven market.” The results of this study validate our vision of the Digital Supply Chain as the key to business transformation and align perfectly with the features in NGC’s Andromeda Cloud Platform, which NGC will be demonstrating at NRF booth #2520.
