Panorama 2017: Book your hotel today and save!


The holiday season is upon us, which means NGC’s Panorama User Conference is getting closer than ever. Keep in mind that our early bird rates for Panorama are only available through Mar. 15. Please register soon for substantial savings.

While you’re making your plans to attend Panorama 2017, we wanted to be sure to remind you to register for your hotel before the deadline of April 17 to receive the room block rate. The beautiful, oceanfront Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale will be hosting us again for Panorama 2017. When you book with the group code before April 17, you’ll save over 50% on your stay! You can book your hotel rooms here.

This promises to be the most informative and engaging Panorama yet. Our keynote speaker, Edward Hertzman, CEO and founder of Hertzman Media Group, will kick off the conference on Wednesday. Edward is a world-class expert in apparel manufacturing and global sourcing, and we’re delighted that he will be with us during Panorama. We’re busy developing the full agenda, including a client appreciation dinner cruise on Wednesday evening. Find the latest details, including session topics and speaker line-up, here.

We look forward to seeing you in Fort Lauderdale in May!



Supply Chain Dive Calls Supply Chain Visibility the “Obsession of the Year”


In 2016, supply chain visibility (and transparency) has been a major focus at NGC Software, and according to Supply Chain Dive, the topic has been on the minds of many industry professionals this year. In the “2016 Dive Awards,” the publication named supply chain visibility the “Obsession of the Year.”

Here’s what Supply Chain Dive had to say about the topic:

“Supply chain visibility lies at the intersection of every other industry obsession, and for that, it deserves a special award.

“The concept’s application is elusive at best – it demands the supply chain manager gain access to information about every link throughout the chain, including specific materials or supplier data. Simultaneously both risk- and consumer-focused, the concept promises to reduce the guesswork and improve margins. 

“Yet for that reason, vendors love it. After all, nearly all solutions can claim to improve visibility through better data collection. Yet, like “resilience,” “big data” and “omnichannel,” the concept must be broken down into components if it is to prove real value.

“But perhaps the industry needs to obsess over visibility if it is to implement the full scale of traceability, tracking and transparency solutions.”

The full list of “2016 Dive Awards” for the supply chain category can be found here. For a broader look at the retail industry, check out the additional Dive Awards here.
