Pelle Pelle, a designer of lifestyle brands including high-end leather jackets and sportswear, has selected New Generation Computing's Web-based supply chain management software, e-SPS, to manage its design process, product development, specifications, collaborate with partners worldwide and track production of its products.

Pelle Pelle will install e-SPS product development, event tracking, collaboration, pre-production and production modules at its headquarters in Detroit and design studio in New York. e-SPS, which will be accessible via the Internet, will enable the company to increase its on-time deliveries and reduce its communication costs.

Pete Gawel, chief executive officer of Pelle Pelle, said: "e-SPS will be a technological asset to us as we work to gain better visibility over our entire production, design and product-development activities."
