NGC Recognized for Its Andromeda PLM Deployment with Jockey International, Inc.

July 12, 2019

NGC was selected as a recipient of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Award this year for our work with Jockey, a 143-year-old brand recognized around the world for its premium underwear and apparel. Take an inside look at this award-winning project and learn how Jockey is using Andromeda PLM® to improve product development and supply chain processes. 


Jockey’s Journey Toward Supply Chain Transformation

Jockey needed a system that would provide a common platform for all PLM-related elements, with one source of information for all departments and vendors. It wanted everyone to be able to manage workflows in a global, collaborative environment to increase speed to market and manage lead times as effectively as possible. The company decided to implement NGC’s Andromeda PLM to manage supply chain performance and give users complete real-time visibility and control from product concept to customer delivery.

The implementation involved various departments including merchandising, design, product development, material development, sourcing, quality, packaging and distribution. NGC’s Andromeda PLM platform allows Jockey to broadcast information throughout the enterprise to optimize product development lead-time and distribution, maximizing company revenue and profit.


Better Efficiency with NGC Andromeda®

With NGC, Jockey has improved its business logistics through using the calendar feature to see lead times decrease anywhere from as little as two weeks to as many as eight weeks in certain processes. The company has also calculated significant cost-savings in resources thanks to process consolidation and improvements, decreased clicks, and significant system time savings compared to using its old legacy PLM system.

Additionally, Jockey is now able to evaluate, manage and report vendor performance using NGC’s solution. This transparency has improved overall lead time and helped resolve any issues with vendors.

“By using NGC’s Andromeda PLM solution, Jockey has been able to become more efficient, collaborate more closely internally and with our vendors, and centralize and share data throughout the entire supply chain in one platform,” said Tim Taylor, SVP and Chief Supply Chain Officer, Jockey. “We’ve also been able to get rid of manual processes and streamline product development to respond faster and meet customers’ demands. We are thankful for NGC’s partnership and the benefits we’ve seen since implementing the solution, helping our company evolve and make faster and more informed decisions.”

We are excited to continue working with Jockey to transform its business and digitize the key elements of its supply chain, adding significant future value to the company.
