New York, NY – August 13, 2018 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced that The Powers Manufacturing Company, a privately owned textile manufacturer of athletic uniforms, selected BlueCherry® Enterprise Suite of solutions, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and EDI. The BlueCherry suite provides end-to-end capabilities for apparel, footwear and consumer lifestyle brands.
Powers Manufacturing was reliant on its homegrown system but found it difficult to effectively, efficiently manage as its business continued to grow. The company was looking for improved workflow from product design through delivery and wanted flexible and robust reporting and analytics without the need for custom programming. Powers also sought to adopt a scalable system to address changing technological needs and improve its financial management and reporting requirements, while also ensuring data security and scalability. With extensive expertise and resources in the apparel market, the CGS BlueCherry suite of solutions will support Powers Manufacturing’s current and future business as it continues to grow, helping the company improve everything from supply chain processes to customer relationship management.
“We know that we’re good at designing and selling football uniforms, but designing, creating and maintaining software is not our strong suit,” said Brent Parks, CFO, Powers Manufacturing. “By choosing a low-risk, proven solution that many other apparel brands have successfully implemented, we expect BlueCherry to help streamline our supply chain activities, allowing for further growth.”
“With over 30 years of experience in the apparel market, CGS understands the value of having the right solutions in place to efficiently and effectively run business operations,” said Paul Magel, president, Business Applications and Technology Outsourcing division, CGS. “We are thrilled to welcome Powers Manufacturing to our thriving BlueCherry community of apparel and consumer goods customers and look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the team.”
CGS’s BlueCherry® Enterprise Suite provides clients with a powerful, comprehensive set of tools to drive their fundamental business processes. It focuses on the needs of high-growth organizations operating in the consumer lifestyle products, retail and apparel industries. The BlueCherry Enterprise Suite’s built-in capacity addresses the needs of all core management, planning, product development, manufacturing, logistics, finance, and sales functions.
