NGC Introduces ARMS, Joins ARTS Initiative, Supplies Solution To Stony Apparel
Miami-based New Generation Computing Inc. (NGC) -- a supplier of product lifecycle management
(PLM), global sourcing and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions -- has debuted Analytics
and Report Management Software (ARMS), an information management, decision support and reporting
tool that works with NGC's e-PLM®, e-SPS®, RedHorse® and other Global Enterprise System software to
simplify and centralize access to the information contained in NGC's software. According to NGC,
users can in minutes create and share custom reports and analytics templates that would typically
take hours to program.
NGC also has joined the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS) committee to establish retail PLM standards. ARTS -- a division of the National Retail Federation -- creates open technology standards through collaboration among technology vendors and retailers. NGC will work together with retailers and technology vendors to develop an XML scheme representation for the product development lifecycle. Once implemented, the ARTS PLM standards are expected to improve product development lifecycles, data management and communications among retailers and their trading partners.
In other company news, Los Angeles-based Stony Apparel Corp. -- a branded and private label manufacturer of girls' and junior apparel -- is implementing NGC's Global Enterprise System software suite to help manage the company's rapid growth, streamline business processes and provide global visibility. According to NGC, upon completion of the software implementation, Stony Apparel will benefit from improved collaboration, improved margins, redundancy elimination, enhanced customer service, and compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.
