Design, innovation, development and sourcing business The S Group has selected CGS’s BlueCherry ERP and PLM solutions to increase visibility and efficiency across all of its departments.

By replacing its legacy system, The S Group hopes to track design, product development and sourcing processes while gaining real-time visibility.

The company says it will also gain from the BlueCherry Adobe Illustrator Plug-in module, which enables designers to launch new products directly in Illustrator and automatically populate BlueCherry PLM, resulting in more innovative designs and better design efficiency.

“Our growing global operations demand an efficient, effective system that can support our fundamental business processes and provide us with one version of the truth, in real-time across all of our departments,” said The S Group CFO Rick Murphy.

The S Group was founded in 2000 by Gary Peck, who has 20 years of experience in the athletic apparel industry.
