Sopheon's innovation heritage

Sopheon (LON: SPE) provides complete Innovation Management software and services to help customers achieve increased growth, mitigate new product risk, gain competitive advantage, and improve profitability. It was founded with the merger of two companies: one, a software company focused on language-intensive business processes and another, a business subscription service company that solved problems through “expert networks” for leading R&D-based companies. Subsequently, over a decade ago, Sopheon introduced its flagship product, Accolade, focused on the key needs of companies driving and innovation and new product development in their companies.

But we didn't stop there; Sopheon continues to innovate our business with our own new products and ones acquired to continue to meet the needs of customers, for product management, innovation project management, and front end of innovation and product lifecycles. Why? We want to empower companies to create the products and innovations that change the world.

Today, Sopheon is a market leader in the innovation market. Our leadership in innovation management was highlighted in the comprehensive MarketsandMarkets™ report on the Innovation Management Market where Sopheon was listed in the “Stars” category, the highest recognition. Sopheon’s solutions have been implemented by more than 250 customers with over 125,000 users in 50 countries.
