Vesi Incorporated, the designer and manufacturer of collegiate sportswear, is to implement integrated supply chain management software in a bid to improve collaboration with overseas vendors and streamline its business processes.

The Extended PLM and ERP tools from NGC will be rolled out across its Vesi Sportswear, Crable Sportswear, and Campus Specialties brands.

"We needed to provide our key personnel with easier access to our ERP system," said Dale Davidson, vice president and COO, Vesi Incorporated.

He added: "One of our biggest challenges over the years has been communication with our overseas vendors.

"The lack of consistent transparency between our vendor partners and ourselves in regard to time and action calendars has just become too cumbersome to accommodate. Furthermore, the elimination of data entry functions by transferring information directly from the PLM system to the ERP software was very enticing."
