For nearly a quarter of a century, Parigi Group's stable of brands has played a major role and are some of the main contributors in helping to shape and define the children's fashion apparel market.
Since acquiring and pioneering the Phat Farm Boys and Baby Phat Girlz brands in the late 90's, they have maintained high standards for quality, trend-right garments that speak to today's savvy and fashion conscious tween. The result of which has been a cascade of product driven long-term partnerships with Puma Kids, Akademiks for Boys, Apple Bottoms for Girls, LRG for Boys, DKNY Kids, Timberland Kids starting Fall 2011 & Nicole Miller for Girls staring Spring 2012.
For our design teams, we now have a standard approach to creating tech packs as well as a company-wide centralized database that can be accessed in real time, 24 hours a day. And while Parigi's children's wear business model is very complex, NGC was able to configure their software to accommodate the specific needs of our technical design teams. We have overall cost savings in both operations and production – benefits that have a positive impact on the bottom line.
Challenge: Parigi sought a solution that would provide end-to-end visibility and enhance global collaboration, allowing the company to improve time to market and manage its increasingly complex, fast-paced business.
