New York, NY – July 17, 2012 — Computer Generated Solutions (CGS), a leading global provider of technology solutions, announced today that Velvet by Graham and Spencer has chosen the BlueCherry PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) software solution to help manage its creative and production teams.
Velvet by Graham and Spencer, a contemporary clothing manufacturer based in Culver City, California, has been in need of a PLM system in order to better monitor the design process and to integrate it into the BlueCherry system. With a wide collection of PLM solutions on the market, Velvet by Graham and Spencer had other options but chose to go with CGS’s BlueCherry PLM based on a core set of factors.
“After a review of products in the marketplace, BlueCherry PLM was an easy decision due to its functionality, ease of use and expanded capabilities with ERP integration,” said Henry Hirschowitz, President of Velvet. “As a result of the implementation, we expect to see improved productivity and increased visibility which will allow for better communication and decision making.”
As a longstanding BlueCherry customer, Velvet by Graham and Spencer continues to develop its alliance with CGS and the selection of BlueCherry PLM further demonstrates this commitment.
“We at CGS are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our partnership with Velvet by Graham and Spencer,” said Paul Magel, President of the Application Solutions Group at CGS. “With its selection of BlueCherry PLM, Velvet by Graham and Spencer will now be able to decrease lead times, improve internal and supplier collaboration, increase process visibility, and achieve many other strategic business enhancements that were previously unfeasible.”
