It’s All About the Digital Supply Chain: What Attendees Will Learn at Velocity 2019

March 22, 2019

Our highly anticipated customer conference is almost here. On Monday, March 25-Wednesday, March 27, leading retailers and fashion brands will gather in Orlando, Florida for the Velocity 2019 customer conference. With more than 80 breakout and training sessions from NGC, Logility, Demand Management and Halo, attendees will learn how to accelerate their digital supply chain transformations by leveraging best practices and technology innovations.

To kick off the conference, NGC will present a session on “Digital Directions: The Future of Fashion,” highlighting NGC’s strategic vision, product roadmap and the many ways that Andromeda is helping retailers and fashion brands make faster decisions, align supply and demand, and create a framework for cognitive, autonomous supply chains.

As the digital supply chain evolves, fashion retailers and brands must pay attention to best practices for optimizing their own supply chains. NGC customers will present case studies on digital supply chain topics including brand protection, the Andromeda PLM experience, product testing and product quality.

Protecting your brand

Ensuring vendor compliance throughout the supply chain is critical to protecting your brand. In our session titled, “Protect Your Brand: Vendor Compliance throughout the Supply Chain,” a leading global apparel company will share how it is using NGC’s Andromeda Vendor Compliance to streamline vendor processes, drive continuous improvement in factories, manage environmental compliance and improve quality control processes. The company will share how Andromeda ensures it has the information it needs to mitigate risk to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and ensure Good Manufacturing Practices.

Sharing information throughout the entire supply chain

The Andromeda fashion PLM solution accelerates product design by providing a common platform for all PLM related elements including planning, merchandising, design, costing, sampling, quality and sourcing. In “The Andromeda PLM Experience,” a leading men’s specialty retailer and a fashion brand will discuss how they are using NGC’s Andromeda PLM solution to become more efficient, collaborate more closely with their vendors, and share product data throughout the entire supply chain.

Managing product testing more effectively

Product testing is an increasingly complex process for fashion brands and retailers, and it’s critical for brand protection. In “Failure is Not an Option: Managing Product Testing More Effectively,” the world’s largest men’s accessories company will share how it is using NGC Andromeda to automate its product testing capabilities and maintain high standards across more than 50 brands.

Improving product quality

Retailers are seeking new solutions to streamline the quality process and minimize chargebacks and cancellations. Our session titled “Trust, but Verify: Improving Product Quality” features three leading fashion companies, who will discuss their challenges in managing product quality. They will focus on how they are using NGC’s Andromeda Quality Control to streamline quality management processes and improve product quality.
