NGC’s new mobile solution allows quality audits to be conducted onsite at factories, reducing chargebacks and cancellations by improving product quality
MIAMI — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 6, 2016 — NGC Software, a leading provider of fashion PLM, supply chain management and apparel ERP solutions, today announced the availability of its Advanced Quality Module. The new tablet-based software and application allows quality control managers to easily conduct quality audits at the manufacturing facility. As a result, retailers and brands can identify problems sooner, fix them at the factory before products ship, and reduce the risk of cancellations or chargebacks by improving product quality.
Replacing time-consuming, manual quality control processes, the NGC Advanced Quality Module provides a comprehensive solution for quality management that can easily integrate with existing PLM and apparel supply chain management solutions from NGC and other vendors. It features multilingual online and offline functionality with global collaboration. NGC’s Advanced Quality Module can be used with the NGC Interactive Quality Tablet (IQT), a fast, easy-to-use, mobile solution for quality auditing.
The easy-to-use solution allows auditors to conduct multiple audit types per purchase order, take photos of defects, and conduct master inspections. NGC’s Advanced Quality Module can provide comprehensive analytics by factory, vendor, country, and style, assuring the most complete set of quality data, which can be analyzed in order to assist with sourcing decisions and identify where factories can make improvements. Corrective action plans bring the quality assurance process full circle.
“NGC’s Advanced Quality Module is revolutionizing the way manufacturers conduct their quality control processes and is far more objective and consistent than the manual processes many manufacturers use,” said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D, NGC Software. “Our Advanced Quality Module is already being deployed by leading fashion brands and retailers, helping them make better sourcing decisions and quickly improve product quality.”
