Ralph Lauren Childrenswear licensee S Schwab Company has selected four additional software modules from New Generation's e-SPS product suite.

The e-Exception, e-Pre-production, e-Pack and e-Shipment Tracking products are due for installation at Schwab's Cumberland, Md, headquarters in July, where they will help streamline production and improve efficiencies.

"We've decided to expand our deployment of New Generation's Computing's e-SPS product suite because of the great success we've enjoyed with the software in better managing our global communications and collaboration procedures," said Doug Schwab, vice president of technology for Schwab.

"We expect the additional modules will further enhance our ability to monitor global production and deliver our products to market on schedule."

Accessible to Schwab's global partners and contractors via an Internet connection, e-SPS helps Schwab streamline the entire production process for its clothing lines - from vendor selection to order placement through production and final delivery to its distribution centres.

The additional e-SPS modules will help improve such functions as purchase-order development and shipment and exception tracking.
