Helping brands to power innovation and collaboration in unprecedented times

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, Oct. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced it will be hosting a webinar to outline the features and benefits of its newly launched BlueCherry Next™ PLM solution. The webinar, New PLM Solution Powering Innovation and Collaboration During Unprecedented Times, will take place on Wednesday, October 21, at 8 a.m. EDT/1 p.m. BST; and Thursday, October 22, at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT. The program speakers include Mark Harrop, CEO at WhichPLM, and Charles Benoualid, VP Research & Development at CGS.

With a focus on consumer goods companies looking to grow their business, the session will cover requirements of a modern Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to support recent market trends: remote work, small batch production runs, 3D materials and product management, eCommerce integrations and corporate responsibility initiatives.

BlueCherry Next PLM, which is the first solution available on the newly launched BlueCherry Next platform, is designed to meet the needs of today’s consumer brands, retailers and manufacturers. The session will address:

  • Current trends affecting the industry in this new normal.
  • Top PLM requirements to increase speed-to-market and improve supply chain efficiencies.
  • Why a no-code solution is the best way to streamline workflows and process visibility.

“With COVID hitting the industry hard, most initiatives planned for 2020 were either put aside or accelerated,” said Benoualid. “The BlueCherry Next platform and the PLM solution have an emphasis on collaboration. With working remotely and reduction in travel, continuing operations by connecting internal team members and third-party suppliers globally across the supply chain in today’s new normal has become an important aspect that the platform offers.”
