NEW YORK CITY — July 25, 2011 — Computer Generated Solutions Inc. (CGS), a global leader in IT
solutions, software and services, announces that decorative home accessories studio MYX, Inc. has
begun implementation of the BlueCherry® PLM software suite at its Palm Springs, CA headquarters.
The popular product lifecycle management solution will be implemented by the company as a
standalone, best-of-breed PLM solution that will replace traditional office software tools and
streamline the company’s design, product development, sourcing, and marketing functions. When fully
implemented, MYX expects the fashion-tailored software to accelerate business processes, improve
collaboration, and enhance new product design.
According to MYX Co-Owner and Creative Entrepreneur Steve Pargman, “As a design-intensive
business, we are challenged to track and manage information and processes for several thousand new
products every year. After attempting to build our own software system, we recognized the value an
industry-proven solution could bring to our company. BlueCherry will bring order to a traditionally
unstructured process and make our entire design-to-delivery product lifecycle more efficient. The
speed and accuracy that we will gain though the system will enable us to deliver greater value to
our customers and increase our overall competitiveness.”
A premier designer and marketer of photo frames and albums, functional wall art, decorative
storage, and other home accessories, MYX combines their innovative product design and development
capabilities with deep knowledge and experience in Asian sourcing and manufacturing to serve a
diverse client list that includes major U.S. home furnishings retailers. In-house product design
and development teams are responsible for all fabrics, components, artwork, colors, storyboards,
and product specifications. After sourcing and approving samples, MYX collaborates with customers
and suppliers on products, costing, orders, and deliveries.
“We are pleased with the opportunity to partner with MYX in support of their business
improvement initiatives,” noted CGS Application Solutions Group President Paul Magel. “The work
that they have already done on defining their business processes and requirements will enable them
to achieve greater and faster benefits from our design and sourcing software suite. The selection
of BlueCherry PLM also positions MYX with a streamlined option to integrate ERP or any other
components of the comprehensive BlueCherry Enterprise solution in the future. We look forward to
working with this fine team.”
