Global fashion and lifestyle brand Nicole Miller is upgrading its product lifecycle management (PLM) system to a cloud-based solution to improve supply chain visibility and manage growth.

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in New York City, the brand is moving to New Generation Computing's (NGC) Andromeda PLM.

The investment will help further streamline its product development workflow and gain better visibility across its supply chain as the company expands the brand into new markets and categories. 

"After six successful years working with NGC, it was an easy decision to upgrade to Andromeda PLM to support our growth plans," says Estelle Rose, chief financial officer, Nicole Miller. "We anticipate additional improvements in productivity and efficiency throughout our global supply chain." 

NGC Andromeda PLM will allow Nicole Miller to benefit from one global platform for all PLM-related elements including planning, merchandising, design, costing, sampling, quality and sourcing. Workflow calendars will provide updates and calendar alerts to ensure deadline compliance and faster turnaround on products. Andromeda PLM integrates closely with Nicole Miller's existing ERP system.
