May 20, 2014

We’re beaming over at the NGC offices today, because not one, but two of our esteemed customers have been named Apparel Magazine’s Top Innovators! Sport Obermeyer and Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits have both been recognized as innovative leaders in the apparel industry, and we couldn’t be happier for them. This is a prominent industry acknowledgment, as Apparel Magazine spotlights retailers, brands and manufacturers that demonstrate exceptional deployments of new technology in ways that significantly enhance their business. Let’s take a look at what Sport Obermeyer and Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits are doing to enrich their organization using NGC technology. [[more]]

Sport Obermeyer is known for its functional, yet fashionable, line of skiwear apparel, and the beloved brand won because of its speedy implementation of NGC’s Global Enterprise Suite. In just four months, Sport Obermeyer replaced all of its enterprise systems (including fashion PLM, Supply Chain Management, apparel ERP and Warehouse Management) with NGC’s solutions – an incredible feat! After its first year in action, Sport Obermeyer has seen a 14% improvement in gross margins, and expects to see substantial ROI after 21 months. In a world where time is money so to speak, a rapid ramp-up with efficient and responsive software was an invaluable advantage in Sport Obermeyer’s transition to the NGC suite of solutions.  

Fashion Avenue Sweater Knits had its sights set on reducing product development time and achieving a faster speed to market, so when the children’s and women’s apparel company implemented NGC’s fashion PLM and Supply Chain Management they took the first step to reaching those goals. NGC’s start-to-finish product lifecycle software and streamlined workflow is helping Fashion Avenue fuel continuous profitability and productivity throughout the enterprise, allowing the company to continue the constant innovation they were so prominently recognized for by Apparel.
