Apparel Features Sport Obermeyer’s Partnership with NGC

As we are all too well aware, the apparel industry is rapidly evolving, with many companies being threatened or left behind if they don’t adapt. Recently Apparel Magazine featured Sport Obermeyer’s quick adaptation to the changing times and how the company has maintained its leadership in specialty ski apparel in the midst of strong competition from eCommerce giants and big box retailers.

To modernize its business operations, Sport Obermeyer implemented NGC’s Global Enterprise Suite (GES) that includes fashion PLM, SCM and ERP. NGC’s solutions have enabled Sport Obermeyer to accelerate design and production and actively track the location of products, in transit and at the factory. By implementing our GES platform, Sport Obermeyer has streamlined design and development processes, increased collaboration across the entire business, and improved profitability.

Greg Bannister, COO of Sport Obermeyer, discussed how they’re using the software to communicate with their factories overseas.

"We're actually writing POs, and they're acknowledging them through our system,” he said. “We can track them from when they get fabric to when they start to cut and sew. We have a better idea of what's going on with factories overseas."
