NGC Software, a leading provider of PLM (Product lifecycle management), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and apparel ERP (enterprise resource planning) solutions, has announced the release and general availability of its next-generation Andromeda cloud platform for fashion retailers and brand owners. Andromeda powers the connected enterprise by bringing together all departments – merchandising, product development, sourcing, compliance, purchasing, production, quality, logistics, marketing and sales – in a single cloud-based solution that connects vendors, suppliers and other providers.
The Andromeda is an innovative cloud-based platform offering an intuitive user interface, advanced functionality, greater scalability and faster performance. The Andromeda provides a single platform, with core PLM and supply chain functionality that can centralize and share information created in other legacy PLM, ERP, SCM, Planning and Point-of-Sale solutions.
The Andromeda enables retailers and brand owners to achieve the levels of performance and responsiveness that are necessary to thrive in today’s highly competitive retail environment. With Andromeda, all global users share information and can quickly react to rapidly changing market trends. As a result, retailers and brand owners can optimize lead times, reduce expenses, improve quality and maximize company revenue and profit.
“The retail industry is changing at light speed,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC Software. He added: “Concepts like demand-driven supply chain, lead time optimization and omni channel distribution all mean one thing: give consumers what they want, when and where they want it. To do this, retailers and brand owners must react faster than ever to the latest data and trends. Andromeda is the solution to this great challenge.”
The NGC will showcase the Andromeda cloud platform at its Panorama User Conference, 16-18 May in Fort Lauderdale.
