Dignity Apparel Selects CGS’s BlueCherry® Shop Floor Control to Digitize its Shop Floor Operations

Leading Provider of Union-made Garments Modernizing its Manufacturing to Expand Operations and Growth Across North America

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced Dignity Apparel, a new provider of union-made clothing and apparel for union workers across the United States, has selected the award-winning, industry-leading BlueCherry® Enterprise Suite and its Shop Floor Control module as its end-to-end ERP and shop floor optimization solution.

The relationship provides for CGS to design an end-to-end solution that not only meets today’s needs, but a future-proof solution designed to match Dignity Apparel’s vision and aggressive growth plans. Operationally, the BlueCherry suite delivers everything needed in terms of real-time visibility on productivity and efficiency measures. Strategically, the CGS team will play an important consultative role in designing and implementing a solution that enables Dignity Apparel to make informed, real-time business decisions to not only serve customers but also workers throughout the value chain, who play a critical role in the company’s mission to provide union-made garments to union workers nationally.

“Our BlueCherry Shop Floor Control implementation with CGS is important because we need real-time visibility to determine our productivity and efficiency levels to meet our inventory demands and make informed business decisions timely as a start-up company,” said Kris Field, Manager, Business Intelligence for Dignity Apparel. “We chose CGS knowing that our success is determined by the people and companies we connect with along the way. The CGS team has the deep industry expertise, breadth and depth of experience and best practices approach to help us drive success.”

Over the past 10 years, and in the last two years in particular, the vast majority of unionized garment factories have either shut down their operations entirely, or stopped serving the union market. As of early 2021, less than 10 such operators existed in the United States. Additionally, non-union garment factories often use imported fabrics and materials to reduce costs. Dignity Apparel’s mission is to support American-made garments, create life-changing, life-long jobs and an environment where all can work together with dignity.
