Software supplier Jesta IS has partnered with supply chain management and ERP software provider NGC Software to boost its Vision Suite product line in a move it says will help companies manage the conception and design phases of their supply chains.

The collaboration will see Jesta's Vision Suite "enriched" with NGC's Andromeda cloud product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. The move, the companies say, will enable total vertical integration for complete visibility and control, from design to delivery.

"We constantly strive to be a 'one-stop-shop' that provides our clients with end-to-end functionality, and the NGC Andromeda cloud PLM solution represents the final link in the chain," says Moris Chemtov, president of Jesta IS. 

NGC Andromeda cloud PLM offers advanced functionality for line planning, ideation, concept management, tech pack creation, material development, sampling, costing, adobe integration, critical path management, and collaboration, giving retailers and brand owners a competitive advantage in the global fashion marketplace.

The cloud platform also includes solutions for supply chain management, vendor compliance, quality control, product testing, WIP tracking and inbound logistics.

"Both of our organisations place a strong emphasis on the core values of innovation, technical excellence and customer service, so this alliance is a perfect match," adds Mark Burstein, president of sales and development, NGC Software.
