The latest release of NGC Software's PLM, supply chain management (SCM) and ERP solutions is said to bring "new accuracy and efficiency" to all areas of product development and supply chain execution.

Version 14 of the web-based software can help drive improvements in overall productivity, speed to market and financial performance through enhancements such as more accurate costing, the ability to run on any type of tablet or mobile device, extended materials forecasting and management capabilities, and a user-configurable business intelligence dashboard.

Other new features include simplified management of social, regulatory and product compliance, and the EZ-Ship factory scan/pack system. Excel integration also enables off-line data entry that flows into NGC's PLM and SCM applications once a user is back online.

"Version 14 of our PLM, SCM and ERP software is one of NGC's most significant and eagerly anticipated product updates," said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC. "This upgrade includes more new features than any previous release."
