Modern Amusement Goes Live on NGC's RedHorse ERP Software in Just 4 Weeks


NGC's Rapid Implementation Services Allow Menswear Designer
 to Implement ERP Solution in Less Than a Month

MIAMI - Oct. 23, 2007 - NGC (New Generation Computing) today announced that Modern Amusement has implemented NGC's RedHorse software, a complete ERP solution that is designed specifically for Fashion, Apparel, Retail and Footwear.  NGC's rapid implementation services enabled Modern Amusement to go live in only four weeks with key business functions including Purchasing and Receiving, Customer Order Processing, Invoicing and Accounts Receivable, Inventory Control, and EDI.

Modern Amusement, a premier designer of men's and women's sportswear, swimwear, and accessories, chose RedHorse based on its out-of-the-box, industry-specific functionality combined with ease of use and comprehensive reporting capabilities.  Another critical factor in the selection was the ability of NGC's Service personnel to ensure that the core business modules in RedHorse could be implemented on a very tight schedule.  Modern Amusement faced a firm deadline in changing from a third-party system to a new ERP solution, leaving no margin for error.

"NGC worked closely with us to set the proper expectations and define the milestones that would be needed for rapid implementation," said Vick Festekjain, CFO, Modern Amusement.  "Their commitment to the project matched ours at every step of the way.  We wouldn't have made our deadline without the extraordinary support and efficiency of NGC's management, as well as its Professional Services and Customer Service teams.  Implementing ERP in only four weeks is a phenomenal achievement."

"This implementation was a breakthrough for both companies involved," said Alan Brooks, president, NGC.  "The dedicated and professional team from Modern Amusement made it possible to get RedHorse up and running very quickly, and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship." 

RedHorse is a user-friendly ERP system that includes EDI, order processing and allocation, inventory, production control, import management, shipping and financial accounting.  An Executive Dashboard feature makes it easy to access real-time business data and monitor Key Performance Indicators such as sales, profits, inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other critical business functions.  RedHorse is part of NGC's SQL Series, a comprehensive, end-to-end suite of solutions that also includes e-PLM for Product Lifecycle Management and e-SPS for Global Sourcing.
