New York, NY –  March 5, 2018 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced that RC Pet Products selected BlueCherry® Shop Floor Control (SFC), an essential module for manufacturing operations within the BlueCherry Enterprise Suite of solutions.

This system will help us to automate the process, using our resources more productively and efficiently.”
