NGC Sourcing, PLM Solutions for Goody's Retail Clothing Chain

Goody's Family Clothing, a retailer of moderately priced apparel, has chosen an end-to-end global sourcing and PLM solution from New Generation Computing (NGC), Miami.

NGC specializes in software for the fashion, apparel and footwear industries, with solutions that include e-SPS for global sourcing, e-PLM for product lifecycle management, and RedHorse ERP software.

Goody's selected e-PLM and e-SPS to give the retailer the ability to track the complete lifecycle of its private-label apparel merchandise. Goody's relies heavily on promotions and advertising, and it needed to improve delivery to its stores, to ensure that advertised merchandise was available on time and with the right quality.

"We were impressed with the maturity and features of e-SPS and e-PLM, and we found that NGC's PLM component was very strong," says Joe Geist, director of IT systems for Goody's Family Clothing, Knoxville, Tenn. "With e-SPS and e-PLM, Goody's will be able to streamline our processes and improve coordination between our offices and overseas vendors, with complete visibility of a style through the product lifecycle."

Goody's operates 383 stores in 21 states.
