MIAMI, USA: NGC Software has announced that Legendary Whitetails, a casual hunting gear and lifestyle apparel marketer, has selected NGC’s PLM, Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Raw Materials Management software.
Legendary Whitetails designs, develops and contracts the production of exclusive apparel, gifts and gear to market to hunters and their families. Prior to selecting NGC’s software, Legendary Whitetails used a multitude of spreadsheets and databases to manage its development processes, causing delays in its supply chain and lengthening its time to market. “We were shortcutting processes to make delivery dates and in many cases even compromising quality,” said Tom Johnson, EVP and General Manager of Legendary Whitetails.
“With our aggressive growth and new product development schedule we recognized that a PLM solution would have a huge impact on our workflow and processes.” Legendary Whitetails expects a number of key benefits from NGC's software, including: Improved workflow management. NGC’s workflow calendars allow users to view the status of milestone dates and ensure that product groups, collections and approvals are on schedule. Customizable alerts can predict if items will run late due to unexpected delays.
“In the catalog business, delivery dates are imperative to successful campaigns, and back orders or missed sales are very hard to recover from,” said Johnson. “NGC’S PLM and Supply Chain management software will hold us to these important deadlines.”
“We expect to greatly reduce our time to market for new products,” said Johnson. “A more efficient and effective development process will also enable Legendary Whitetails to improve product quality.”
According to Johnson, “Managing our raw materials with a centralized system that can control inventory will greatly reduce our time to market and increase accuracy for better control.” Legendary Whitetails adds it chose NGC Software for its deep understanding of the apparel industry. “We felt NGC offered the most well rounded software to meet the requirements that were important to a successful PLM solution,” said Johnson, regarding Legendary Whitetails’ decision to select NGC as its PLM and SCM solution provider. "The ability of NGC's software to handle all of the necessary workflows and details in the development process surpassed all the other solutions we investigated.”
