Omnichannel speciality menswear retailer Destination XL Group (DXL) is implementing NGC Software's EZ-Ship Scan/Pack solution.
NGC Software is a provider of fashion PLM, supply chain management and apparel ERP solutions.
DXL will use EZ-Ship to reduce chargebacks and packing errors by authenticating the contents of each carton and shipment sent from its factories.
The retailer intends to roll out EZ-Ship, a factory-level scan/pack solution with electronic data exchange (EDI), at around 12 locations.
DXL's latest tie-up with NGC builds on the success of its PLM implementation, which has helped the retailer to streamline its design and sourcing operations.
NGC's fashion PLM software enabled frequent and timely communications with suppliers, while reducing cost and improving product quality.
Interfacing with DXL's SCM, ERP and EDI systems, NGC EZ-Ship enables shipments to multiple distribution centres directly from the factory.
The solution supports unrestricted ASN and label formats, thereby providing remote shipping sites with the flexibility to use a standard import and export data set that interfaces with any ERP, WMS or distribution centre system.
The retailer expects to grow from 140 stores at the end of the 2014 fiscal year to approximately 230 locations by the end of this year.
