MIAMI— Feb. 23, 2016 — NGC Software today announced that Brian Brothers, developers of the popular urban menswear brand Jordan Craig, is implementing NGC’s fashion PLM and Supply Chain Management (SCM) system. The rapidly growing apparel brand reviewed apparel software solutions from other leading PLM vendors and chose NGC based on its extensive knowledge of the fashion industry and the strength and flexibility of its best-in-class enterprise solution.
NGC’s PLM/SCM system will provide Brian Brothers with an enterprise platform that easily shares information among its design and production teams, improving collaboration, accuracy and responsiveness.
“We need a platform that gives us one version of the truth,” said Brian Chang, production and design manager, Brian Brothers. “Without a centralized system, it’s impossible to know if everyone is working with the same information; otherwise, you may have situations where one team is working from a different set of specs than another. We need to not only improve speed to market, but also minimize mistakes and have better communications with our overseas producers.”
“We want to be able to spend more time on our design, which is our core strength,” he continued. “NGC’s software will enable us to do that.”
The flexibility of NGC’s enterprise platform was an important factor in Brian Brother’s selection of NGC. The PLM/SCM system will integrate with Brian Brothers’ legacy ERP solution, which will allow Brian Brothers to implement a fashion design and production system without having to undergo a costly ERP replacement.
NGC’s industry knowledge was a big plus, too. “NGC’s people are very knowledgeable, with lots of industry experience in apparel,” Chang said. “They were very responsive and accommodating, and that gave us confidence in moving forward with NGC.”
“Brian Brothers is ideally poised to take advantage of the benefits of NGC’s fashion PLM and Supply Chain Management solution,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC. “We look forward to a successful implementation.”
