Grupo Karim’s Selects NGC’s Fashion PLM and SCM Solution

NGC Software, a provider of product lifecycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and shop floor control software and services for brands, retailers, and consumer products companies, has announced that Grupo Karim’s, a diversified global company with core businesses that include private-label apparel manufacturing, has selected NGC’s fashion PLM and SCM solution. Grupo Karim’s specializes in providing its customers and partners with quality services for apparel design and production in Asia, Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico.

Grupo Karim’s has reportedly experienced several supply chain and productivity challenges prior to selecting NGC’s comprehensive PLM and SCM solution. The company was missing integration and collaboration on the same platform with all manufacturing locations and departments and was using spreadsheets and isolated databases for certain processes. With NGC's solutions, Grupo Karim's expects to improve productivity and reduce costs while providing better customer service throughout the entire product development and production process.

NGC typically wins against its usual competitors (e.g., TradeStone Software, Lectra, Centric) when companies are looking to extend the reach of their PLM systems into SCM as well. NGC's combined PLM-SCM solution encompasses not only product design and development, but also all of the phases of SCM and Global Sourcing, including work in progress (WIP) tracking, vendor collaboration and management, materials management, quality, logistics.

With its combined PLM-SCM offering, NGC is able to provide a single solution that extends from the initial design until the products are available on the retail floor. The offering is hoped to help Grupo Karim’s shorten the total lead time from product concept to delivery at the customer's door, with the ability to manage compliance and testing requirements under one platform for real-time access.
