Rhone Selects New Generation Computings Andromeda Cloud Platform

New Generation Computing, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions
for product lifecycle management (PLM), supply chain management (SCM),
quality control and vendor compliance, today announced that Rhone, the
premier men’s activewear and lifestyle brand, has selected NGC’s
Andromeda Cloud PlatformTM.

Rhone has selected Andromeda PLM and SCM to help expand its line with
more efficiency and speed as the company continues its exponential
growth. The easily configurable and user-friendly solutions will allow
Rhone to integrate data from all corporate departments and third-party
providers of goods and services into one source of information, from
merchandise planning through sale to the final consumer.

Founded in 2014, Rhone offers a full line of style-driven men’s
activewear made from premium, innovative fabrics with exceptional
performance qualities. The brand’s high-quality materials, which are
sourced from around the world, create clothing with extremely
comfortable fits and category-leading performance characteristics,
including anti-odor and anti-microbial properties. The omni-channel
brand has experienced tremendous growth since inception and has a loyal
customer following that contributes to its category-leading position.
Rhone has wholesale partnerships with a presence in influential
retailers including Equinox, REI and Nordstrom.

“As Rhone has gone through a maturation process and we begin to
standardize product development and innovation, it was necessary for us
to identify a technology partner that would help elevate those efforts,”
said Kyle McClure, creative director, Rhone. “After an exhaustive
search, NGC offered us the platform to support our brand growth today,
tomorrow and in the years to come.”

“Rhone is using advanced materials and state-of-the-art technology,
combined with exceptional craftsmanship, to create a new standard in
activewear, and NGC is incredibly excited to be part of its story,” said
Mark Burstein, president, New Generation Computing. “With Andromeda,
Rhone will be able to continuously improve its business by realizing the
benefits of the digital supply chain, enabling the brand to optimize
product lead time and distribution, in order to maximize revenue and
profit.”
