NGC Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects for 10th Consecutive Year

NGC is recognized for helping C&A expand its business with a digital supply chain

MIAMI—June 24, 2020— New Generation Computing, Inc. (“NGC”) announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has named NGC a recipient of the SDCE 100 Award for the tenth consecutive year.

This year, NGC was recognized for its work with C&A, a leading fashion retail business with more than 2,500 stores in 22 countries worldwide. With rapidly expanding business growth, C&A needed a supply chain platform to help the company make informed decisions using fast, accurate and transparent data. The company implemented NGC’s digital supply chain platform to receive the transparency necessary to support agile decision making and faster speed-to-market.

Since implementing the platform and enabling a digital supply chain, C&A has gained visibility to support its operations and future growth. The added traceability of NGC’s platform provides teams the ability to validate each team member’s updates while eliminating siloed data and processes. The calendar module allows C&A to plan each season uniquely, support workflows and set milestones to track progress or predict delays. Using the vendor compliance tool, C&A can evaluate, manage and report on vendor compliance and success.

“We are honored to be recognized again for our work helping retailers such as C&A expand their businesses with a digital supply chain solution,” said Mark Burstein, president, NGC. “When C&A first approached us in 2016 looking for a flexible solution for multiple users, we knew our platform could help. Receiving this distinction from SDCE is wonderful validation of our collaborative success.”

The SDCE 100 spotlights successful and innovative projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.

“Innovation is essential in driving the supply chain industry forward, and thanks to these valuable partnerships, companies of all sizes are able to achieve success in projects that matter,” said Marina Mayer, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “From business intelligence systems and supply and demand planning to inventory reduction and procurement solutions, the SDCE 100 offers proof-of-concept that with the right planning and execution, anything is possible.”
