CGS Shop Floor Control Essential Drives Global Demand

Company’s progressive Cloud-based solution for Production Management and Shop Floor Optimization Drives New Customer Acquisition

New York, NY – April 27, 2023 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, announced today that its Shop Floor Control Essential™ has driven rapid growth worldwide. This success can be attributed to CGS’s team of experts and their hands-on, consultative approach, coupled with the innovative technology of its new cloud-based Shop Floor Control (SFC) Essential.

"We implemented Shop Floor Control in 2022 for our brand-new sewing factory here in Waterloo, Iowa,” said Nancy Steinbron, Business Operations Leader for Dignity Apparel. “CGS and their deeply experienced team have been excellent. We love the BlueCherry Shop Floor Control system and are looking forward to taking advantage of the dynamic reports and data that can be gathered and analyzed for actionable results.”

CGS’s existing BlueCherry® Shop Floor Control Enterprise is the most widely adopted  fashion-focused Production Management System (PMS) in the world. With the recent launch and addition of SFC Essential, more manufacturers and now brands can leverage the flexibility and lighter infrastructure to quickly digitize their operations,  increase productivity and efficiency, reduce costs, and improve quality while meeting process transparency, sustainability and compliance requirements – all at their fingertips, anytime, anywhere.

“In our pursuit of a better data collection solution for our production floor, CustomFab USA chose to partner with CGS to implement their impressive BlueCherry SFC,” said Brian Alhanati, Vice President for Custom Fab USA. “The visibility provided by BlueCherry SFC, combined with the flexibility to tailor the program around our unique brand of manufacturing made the decision to choose CGS an easy one.”

“While our new Essential boasts all the cutting-edge features users demand, savvy customers want even more.  They’re looking for a partner  that is with them every step of the way – ensuring that their specific needs are met, deployment is seamless, and a short term return on investment is achieved,” said Michael Penchansky, Vice President Global Business Development, Manufacturing Systems for CGS.  “That’s where CGS shines.  What makes our innovative, market-leading platform truly stand out is the team behind it. We see customers as long-term partners and as such are to their success.”

Brian Howe, CFO for Vapor Apparel added, “We found the CGS team to be extremely collaborative. They worked diligently to systemically accommodate our unique scenarios. They were responsive and took the time to fully understand our operational nuances.”
