NGC Introduces the Andromeda Cloud Platform for the Connected Enterprise, Enabling Fashion Brands and Retailers to Optimize Lead Times and Improve Profits
MIAMI—April 5, 2017—NGC Software, a leading provider of PLM, Supply Chain Management and apparel ERP solutions, today announced the release and general availability of its next-generation Andromeda cloud platform for fashion retailers and brand owners. Andromeda powers the Connected Enterprise by bringing together all departments – Merchandising, Product Development, Sourcing, Compliance, Purchasing, Production, Quality, Logistics, Marketing and Sales – in a single cloud-based solution that connects vendors, suppliers and other providers.
Andromeda is an innovative cloud-based platform offering an intuitive user interface, advanced functionality, greater scalability and faster performance. Andromeda provides a single platform, with core PLM and supply chain functionality that can centralize and share information created in other legacy PLM, ERP, SCM, Planning and Point-of-Sale solutions.
Andromeda enables retailers and brand owners to achieve the levels of performance and responsiveness that are necessary to thrive in today’s highly competitive retail environment. With Andromeda, all global users share information and can quickly react to rapidly changing market trends. As a result, retailers and brand owners can optimize lead times, reduce expenses, improve quality and maximize company revenue and profit.
“The retail industry is changing at light speed,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC Software. “Concepts like demand-driven supply chain, lead time optimization and omnichannel distribution all mean one thing: give consumers what they want, when and where they want it. To do this, retailers and brand owners must react faster than ever to the latest data and trends. Andromeda is the solution to this great challenge.“
Andromeda enables the Connected Enterprise by keeping every user and every department synchronized and allowing companies to react instantly to the latest sales, forecast and production data. As a result, companies can take advantage of real-time sales information to adjust in-season plans. In the Connected Enterprise powered by Andromeda, sales data is immediately available throughout an organization, allowing every department to quickly respond and align.
