CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced that NYC Alliance Holdings, Inc., a multi-platform apparel company, selected BlueCherry® Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), an essential module within the BlueCherry Enterprise Suite of solutions, providing end-to-end capabilities for apparel and consumer lifestyle brands.

Founded in 2009, NYC Alliance is a privately owned woman's multi-platform apparel company. Design-centric, with superior quality and competitively priced, the company's focus is on diversified product classifications catering to the needs of a woman's lifestyle in sweaters, knits, wovens and active.

Its cross-functional teams are innovative and agile from sourcing raw materials to manufacturing and distribution capabilities. The company's end-to-end supply chain enables the flexibility to produce over 40-million units annually.

NYC Alliance Holdings sought to advance its visibility into product development data and remove manual processes to improve workflow speed and gain insight into product design adoption. The company also wanted a solution that provided triggers and alerts that would enable the team to address production issues. With the CGS team's extensive expertise and resources in the consumer lifestyle products market, the implementation of BlueCherry PLM will help support NYC Alliance Holdings' growth, bring end-to-end visibility to its product lifecycle and improve its timeline to bring goods to market.
