Canada: Giant Tiger Supports Design and Product Development With Collaboration

Discount Retail Chain Giant Tiger (family owned) will support its design and product development groups with better collaboration. The family discount store has over 260 locations across Canada and employs over 10,000 people. Giant Tiger, which is based in Ottawa, Canada, required a solution to drive product development from concept to adopted product, improve data integrity, centralize digital assets and support the generation of comprehensive product tech packs.

The retailer has selected CGS’ BlueCherry Next Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to help support the design and product development groups in bringing collaboration among all stakeholders, suppliers and vendors. BlueCherry Next PLM is an enhanced part of the end-to-end BlueCherry enterprise suite for apparel and consumer lifestyle brands and retailers.

The retailer chose the BlueCherry Next PLM solution for its features including the seamless, designer-friendly integration with Adobe Illustrator and its intuitive, flexible and configurable user interface. The implementation of BlueCherry PLM helps support the retailer's current and future business requirements, helping to increase efficiency, collaboration and visibility across the supply chain.

“With more than 35 years of experience in the apparel and consumer lifestyle market, CGS understands the value of having the right solutions in place to efficiently and effectively run business operations,” said Paul Magel, president, Business Applications and Technology Outsourcing division, CGS. “We are excited to welcome Giant Tiger to our thriving BlueCherry community of consumer goods brands and retailers and look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with the team.”

The CGS BlueCherry Next PLM is a highly configurable, no-code product lifecycle management solution designed to meet today’s consumer brands, retailers and manufacturers’ needs. The solution powers collaboration, improves speed-to-market and controls costs, while providing total visibility, control and compliance in a brand's supply chain.
