Apparel Producer Century Place Implements the Latest Version of NGC's
Fashion ERP System
MIAMI -- March 5, 2013
NGC® today announced that Century Place, an apparel company that produces and
sells knit shirts, has upgraded to the latest version of NGC's fashion ERP
Century Place, which has been in business for 31 years, made the move to take
advantage of the many new features in NGC's ERP, including flexible reporting,
easy data drill-down, improved order entry and many other improvements. NGC’s
versatile fashion ERP provides the flexibility to manage all types of
companies, whether they manufacture or import, produce private label or
branded merchandise, or sell to big box retailers or specialty stores. NGC's
ERP includes a configurable EDI system, sophisticated financial accounting,
flexible reporting features, and handles key business functions including
Customer Order Processing, Purchasing, Manufacturing/Contractor Management,
Inventory Control, Allocation, Distribution and Warehouse Management.
"The order entry and reporting alone have made our team's job so much easier,"
said Janice Huffman, ERP project manager at Century Place. "With the order
entry, the system has everything on one screen, and we can easily communicate
information on pick slips – for example, flagging orders that have to go out
today, charging the customer's UPS account and other information that helps us
improve customer services. The reporting is much easier and faster, too, and
there are lots of useful new reports."
Huffman notes that the upgrade process went smoothly. "I've developed great
relationships with NGC over the years, and the people are fantastic and
wonderful to work with," she noted. "If I have a problem, they'll jump on it
and get it fixed right away."
"It's especially gratifying when NGC Software can help longtime customers such
as Century Place realize new benefits from our software," said Mark Burstein,
president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC. "We appreciate the close working
relationship that we have developed, and we look forward to seeing Century
Place continue to see strong results from our ERP system."
