Brian Brothers, the apparel company behind men's wear brand Jordan Craig, is implementing an integrated product lifecyle management (PLM) and supply chain management (SCM) solution to help improve collaboration, accuracy and responsiveness across its design and production teams. 

Brian Brothers will use NGC's fashion PLM/SCM system to assist communication with overseas producers, increasing speed to market as well as minimising mistakes. 

"We need a platform that gives us one version of the truth," said Brian Chang, production and design manager at Brian Brothers. "Without a centralised 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 specifications than another."

The PLM/SCM system will integrate seamlessly with Brian Brothers' legacy ERP solution, which will allow the company to implement a fashion design and production system without having to undergo a costly ERP replacement.
