Lifestyle Fashion Brand Mondetta Implements BlueCherry® Enterprise Software

Active Lifestyle and Performance Gear Designer and Manufacturer Mondetta Is Replacing Its In-House Business Software With the BlueCherry Infinity ERP Solution From CGS; The Company Expects the New Software to Increase Overall Productivity and Enable More Efficient Growth

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Computer Generated Solutions Inc. (CGS) announces that lifestyle fashion marketer and manufacturer Mondetta Clothing Company (www.mondetta.com) is implementing the BlueCherry Infinity enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution at its Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) headquarters. The new system is replacing the company's in-house business software for use throughout the retail, private label, and corporate apparel divisions. Mondetta expects the new system to increase productivity and operational efficiency while enabling more efficient growth.

According to Mondetta CIO/CTO, Monte Riehl, "Mondetta began a process to achieve business process improvements in every aspect of our global business. This identified our legacy ERP as a center of sub-optimal processes. After reviewing numerous systems, we felt comfortable that CGS understood our business and had the functionality to meet our specific needs. The new BlueCherry Infinity interface, the system wide automation capabilities, and the maturity of the BlueCherry product provide the platform for achieving these improvements. We believe that BlueCherry will help us become more efficient and productive immediately, and for years to come. We need software that allows us to continue to grow without adding bodies, providing real reductions to our overhead, and improving our margins. We now have that in BlueCherry."

Once BlueCherry Enterprise is fully implemented, Mondetta sales, design, product development, production, logistics, and financial teams in Hong Kong, California, and Canada will access a single system to collaborate on all aspects of the operation to speed processes and minimize errors and delays.

"We are pleased with the opportunity to partner with Mondetta as they continue their impressive growth," stated Paul Magel, President of the CGS Application Solutions Group. "We applaud their decision to move beyond their home-grown systems to leverage a proven and comprehensive business solution. As significant challenges and opportunities continue to drive our industry, we expect that more and more growing companies will look to BlueCherry to leverage the out-of-the-box best practices it delivers."
