West Coast apparel company Jerry Leigh, which makes licensed products for top US retailers, has successfully implemented NGC’s e-PLM software for product lifecycle management. 

Combining e-PLM with its existing e-SPS software for global sourcing and visibility provides the apparel firm with a single, integrated solution that covers every step of the product lifecycle, from design concept through sourcing to receipt at the distribution centre.

The web-based solution centralises information, improves collaboration, and streamlines workflows, for faster speed to market and enhanced communication throughout the global supply chain. 

“Some of the e-PLM features that were particularly attractive to us included version control on spec packs and a central repository for images and component masters,” said Jeff Silver, vice president and CFO at Jerry Leigh. 

“In addition, having visibility to styles when they’re in development will allow for early costing to ensure that we meet our profit goals for each style.”

Other benefits of e-PLM and e-SPS are said to include faster speed to markets, and streamlined communication with supply chain partners around the world.

“Jerry Leigh designs and develops merchandise for many of the world’s most recognized brands and retailers, so quality and timing are critical to our success,” Silver added.
