Apriso Recognized as Top Technology Solution for the Manufacturing Industry by Start-IT Magazine
Selection based on a rigid set of selection criterion, including the use of industry-leading technology designed specifically for the manufacturing industry
(LONG BEACH, CA; March 12, 2007) - Apriso Corporation, a provider of adaptive software platforms for global operations execution, announced today START-IT Magazine named it to the publication's 2007 list of the top technology solutions serving the manufacturing industry.
"This year's START-IT 125 listings provide a snapshot of the industrial market and the companies with the greatest impact on its direction," says John Buell, editor-in-chief of START-IT magazine. "The selected companies each demonstrate a thorough understanding of the challenges facing manufacturers in today's increasingly global playing field by providing solutions that enable their customers to remain competitive."
Apriso just announced last week its selection as "Best 2007 MES Solution Provider", an award based on customer testimonials recognizing product viability and overall customer satisfaction. Global manufacturers are increasingly demanding more than a set of ‘silo' applications, such as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) or a Warehouse Management System (WMS). Rather, they are seeking an integrated solution that works across the organization within each area of operations while capturing local best practices for deployment enterprise-wide, helping to increase overall operations efficiency.
"We are very pleased to be included with such an impressive roster of leading technology companies," commented Jim Henderson, Apriso's president and chief executive officer. "Being named to this list validates the increased traction we are experiencing in the marketplace, especially by those global manufacturers seeking a flexible, adaptive solution to address global production challenges."
"We are excited about this year's winners. The editors were more discerning this year, and some companies that have made it in the past have been removed, truly making this a remarkable and useable list for manufacturers," said Peggy Smedley, editorial director of START-IT.
