NGC (New Generation Computing) is poised to enter the fast-growing Indian market through a reseller agreement with local consultancy firm Technopak.

Under the terms of the deal, Technopak will sell and provide implementation services for the full range of NGC’s supply chain software for retailers, apparel brands and factories in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Among the NGC products covered by the agreement are e-PLM for product life cycle management; e-SPS for global sourcing and visibility; RedHorse for apparel ERP and TPM (The Production Manager) for shop floor control.

NGC has been attracted by the fast growth in the Indian retail market, expected to reach US$110bn by 2013.

The number of shopping malls is expected to almost double to 600 in the next two years.

“The Indian market is vitally important to NGC, and Technopak has an unsurpassed reputation, not just in India but worldwide,” said Alan Brooks, NGC president.
