Women’s fashion specialist Jaya Apparel Group (formerly L’Koral) is implementing NGC's Extended PLM software across all divisions.

The company, headquartered in Vernon, California, has 10 divisions including Patterson J Kincaid and Elizabeth and James, a modern lifestyle brand designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
 
The Extended PLM software, which includes Global Sourcing and Supply Chain Management, will help boost design efficiency, standardise processes across all the company's brands, and improve production tracking and vendor collaboration.

It will also extend the life of Jaya Apparel's legacy ERP system, allowing the company to continue to leverage its existing business systems while transforming design and sourcing productivity.
 
The web-based tool has been rolled out to vendors for collaboration and production updates. “Having all our vendors on a single platform makes it much easier to communicate with all our divisions and departments,” notes David Page, project manager for Jaya Apparel Group.
