NGC Introduces the Andromeda Cloud Platform for the Connected Enterprise, Enabling Fashion Brands and Retailers to Optimize Lead Times and Improve Profits
NGC Software, a leading
provider of PLM, Supply
Chain Management and apparel ERP solutions, today announced the
release and general availability of its next-generation Andromeda cloud
platform for fashion retailers and brand owners. Andromeda powers the Connected
Enterprise by bringing together all departments - Merchandising,
Product Development, Sourcing, Compliance, Purchasing, Production,
Quality, Logistics, Marketing and Sales - in a single cloud-based
solution that connects vendors, suppliers and other providers.
Andromeda is an innovative cloud-based platform offering an intuitive
user interface, advanced functionality, greater scalability and faster
performance. Andromeda provides a single platform, with core PLM and
supply chain functionality that can centralize and share information
created in other legacy PLM, ERP, SCM, Planning and Point-of-Sale
Andromeda enables retailers and brand owners to achieve the levels of
performance and responsiveness that are necessary to thrive in today's
highly competitive retail environment. With Andromeda, all global users
share information and can quickly react to rapidly changing market
trends. As a result, retailers and brand owners can optimize lead times,
reduce expenses, improve quality and maximize company revenue and profit.
"The retail industry is changing at light speed," said Mark Burstein,
president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC Software. "Concepts like
demand-driven supply chain, lead time optimization and omnichannel
distribution all mean one thing: give consumers what they want, when and
where they want it. To do this, retailers ad brand owners must react
faster than ever to the latest data and trends. Andromeda is
the solution to this great challenge."
Andromeda enables the Connected Enterprise by keeping every user and
every department synchronized and allowing companies to react instantly
to the latest sales, forecast and production data. As a result,
companies can take advantage of real-time sales information to adjust
in-season plans. In the Connected Enterprise powered by Andromeda, sales
data is immediately available throughout an organization, allowing every
department to quickly respond and align.
