New Generation Computing Inc. (NGC), a wholly owned subsidiary of American Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMSWA), today announced that Gold Toe Brands Inc. (GTB) has selected NGC’s e-Quality to monitor and maintain quality control of its global production of hosiery products.

GTB installed e-Quality at its Mebane, N.C., distribution center in March. The software complements the existing e-SPS modules, created by NGC, that GTB began using last year and provide the company with end-to-end visibility of its global supply chain.

e-Quality uses the Internet to capture data and facilitates the early detection of problems that could affect a retailer’s or manufacturer’s ability to deliver top-quality products on schedule. e-Quality supports a variety of audits, including workmanship audits and packing accuracy checks, at the factory level while providing users at headquarters with inspection status reports, immediate alerts of failed inspections and the ability to quickly conduct defect and quality trend analyses.

“e-Quality will enable us to significantly improve our ability to deliver our customers top-quality products on time,” said Val Zumbro, director of information systems for GTB. “The e-Quality module provides an easy-to-use, consistent method to record results of our quality audits of inbound sourced products and provides timely feed back to our worldwide suppliers. It is a great addition to the e-SPS modules previously installed that have made it possible for us to streamline many aspects of our sourcing of products.”
