We use an entire suite of NGC, the GES Model. I started creating an RFP, the solutions were evident that I needed something that would communicate from the design to the supply chain to the ERP to fulfillment. That came down to a very few companies that were willing to do everything that we needed to do or had the capabilities of doing everything we needed to do and NGC, ultimately won out on that one. Well the benefits are outstanding really when you look at a company that we had big troubles and a lot of the troubles were self-induced because we really didn’t have the capability of looking our data appropriately, being able to analyze what were doing. The ROI that I initially had which was a 24 month ROI, reduced to seven months and so we had almost immediate payback with the system just based on being able to do the things we need to do and the core part was the ERP and now were really pushing on the PLM side very hard to get the benefits of that system as well.
