NGC Adds Business Intelligence to RedHorse® Software with New Executive Dashboard


MIAMI, May 8 - New Generation Computing® (NGC®), a market leader in PLM, global sourcing and ERP software for the fashion, apparel and footwear industries, today announced a new executive dashboard module for the company's RedHorse apparel ERP solution. RedHorse, a comprehensive Enterprise Resource Planning system designed especially for the apparel and sewn products industries, is part of NGC's SQL Series suite of end-to-end solutions, which also includes e-SPS® software for global sourcing and visibility and e-PLM for product lifecycle management.

Built on the Microsoft® .NET framework, the RedHorse dashboard provides a visual window into critical business data contained in RedHorse. The dashboard presents information in an easily understood, user-configurable way, using colorful graphics and icons. At a glance, executives can view real-time data and track key performance indicators (KPIs) in sales, profits, inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and many other areas of interest. Users can use the system-supplied metrics or easily create metrics of their own to help better measure and manage their business.

"The RedHorse dashboard brings powerful new capabilities and value to NGC's RedHorse software, allowing executives to instantly sort through business information and understand trends," said Alan Brooks, president, NGC. "This level of information was previously available only through third-party Business Intelligence or reporting applications, so NGC is excited to make it available as part of our RedHorse solution."
