Custom and embellished team sportswear manufacturer GTM Sportswear has selected NGC's Extended PLM software to improve its supply chain execution.

Headquartered in Manhattan, Kansas, GTM offers a high degree of customisation and embellishments, including sequins, screen printing, sublimation printing, and other advanced techniques.

The company needed new software to help manage its growth, improve its forecasting and materials planning capabilities, and streamline its design, production and quality control processes. GTM - which backs its products with a 100% commitment to customer satisfaction - also wanted to eliminate out-of-stocks and ensure rapid turnaround of customer orders.

Its implementation will include NGC's Extended PLM and material resource planning software, along with forecast management software from Demand Management, NGC's sister company.

Benefits are expected in forecasting and inventory management, raw materials management, customer service, quality management and CPSIA compliance. The system is also scalable for future growth.

"We think this collaboration will help us to progress in the areas of forecasting, demand planning, materials resource planning, PLM, and supply chain visibility," said John Windham, vice president of sourcing for GTM Sportswear.

"GTM continues to experience dynamic growth, and our mission to deliver world-class customer service is dependent on our ability to position our inventory to meet our customers' needs.

"This software solution will allow us to continue that growth and provide scalable supply chain execution to service both an increase in volume and uninterrupted improvement in our customer service."
