Amy Smilovic is passionate about surrounding herself with creative people and an inspiring environment. This makes Soho, NY the ideal location for Tibi’s design studio and showroom. Each member of the Tibi design team is bound together by their love of fashion that is laidback and easy but always chic and modern. The studio’s aesthetic is minimal, with rounded corners, arched ceilings, ample windows and an open floor plan. The décor is kept simple, with mid-century modern furniture and bold printed rugs. The New York City flagship store, also located in Soho on Wooster Street, reflects the signature of the studio and is the inspiration for Tibi stores throughout Japan.
NGC offered a comprehensive solution with both PLM and ERP, and that was very appealing to us. There were various features that stood out when compared to other systems, such as calendars and alerts that allow us to manage the business by exception.
NGC's software allows data from design, production, inventory, sales and accounting to live in the same repository. This reduces time and error related to system interfaces, enabling us to get reports that correlate to different areas of the business. This allows us to focus our efforts on analyzing data rather than inputting it.
Challenge: Tibi sought an integrated PLM-ERP system to streamline business processes, improve productivity and support the brand’s rapid growth.
