Identify quality problems faster and reduce chargebacks with Andromeda Quality Control and mobile solution

Cloud-based Quality Control for Fashion and Apparel Brands & Retailers

NGC’s cloud-based Andromeda Quality Control solution was designed specifically for the needs of apparel, fashion and footwear brands & retailers to deliver unparalleled efficiency, transparency and accuracy.

Streamline the quality process, allowing QC supervisors to schedule audits based upon factory clusters and delivery schedules. Inspectors can efficiently conduct and report on audit results using our Interactive Quality Tablet (IQT) versus traditional manual processes. With multilingual and offline support, language and internet connectivity will not inhibit the productivity of your global vendors. With our Quality Control solutions, you can identify problems sooner to reduce the risk of cancellations, chargebacks and returns.

As part of the Andromeda cloud platform, you can easily pull the necessary product and PO details needed to conduct the various audits from our Andromeda PLM and Andromeda Supply Chain solutions, or we can integrate with your current solution(s).

You can also streamline your processes by integrating our Andromeda Vendor Compliance module to help onboard, organize, vet and manage your global vendors in a systematic, efficient way, allowing you to make better sourcing decisions, ensure overall compliance, and mitigate any potential risk to safeguard your company.
