US: NGC and Paxar in labelling alliance

9 January 2007 | News | Source: just-style.com

New Generation Computing (NGC) and Paxar are to integrate their software and service solutions to help improve and simplify the labelling process for trading partners, and to ensure greater compliance by factories.
 
NGC markets product lifecycle management (PLM), global sourcing and ERP software, while Paxar designs and manufactures tickets, tags and labels, and provides the technology - including printers and software control systems - for retail product identification. 

The two companies say the alliance combines their strengths in delivering supply chain innovations to the apparel and footwear industries and will also help apparel brands and retailers protect their brands.
 
Using NGC’s e-SPS web-based software for global sourcing, apparel brands and retailers will be able to automatically order labels and tags online from Paxar when the purchase order is issued, or else provide specifications for in-house printing by the factory. 

Integration with the e-SPS time and action calendars will reduce delays in label and tag delivery and improve collaboration and visibility between supply chain trading partners. 

The solution also supports RFID and will enable customers to comply with the growing demand for RFID labelling.
