Kids' and tweens' clothing maker Parigi Group is implementing New Generation Computing's e-PLM and e-SPS software to manage its worldwide product development and supply chain operations. 

With offices in New York and Hong Kong and factories throughout the world, Parigi wants the solution to provide end-to-end visibility and enhance global collaboration, allowing the company to improve time to market. 

e-PLM and e-SPS, an integrated application for product development and global sourcing, will help manage and control product specifications, standardise business processes, provide production tracking and help to reduce cycle times. 

"Our brands are recognised for being on the cutting edge of fashion, so it's crucial for us to stay as close to the trends as possible," said Isaac Jemal, Parigi Group's vice president of design and project manager for the implementation. 

Parigi is currently in the early phases of implementation, with plans to be fully rolled out in 2008. 

As well as Phat Farm Boys and Baby Phat Girlz, the company's brands include Puma Kids, Akademiks for Boys, Apple Bottoms for Girls, and Enyce Kids.
