Sopheon Recognized as Top Solution Provider by Consumer Goods Innovators for 7th Consecutive Year

CGT Magazine’s Readers Choose Sopheon as a Top 10 Tech Provider for a Hyper-Competitive Marketplace

MINNEAPOLIS and LONDON—February 14, 2017 —Sopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for Enterprise Innovation Performance, is proud to be recognized for the seventh consecutive year by Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) magazine’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Survey as a top provider of New Product Development & Introduction (NPDI) solutions for the consumer goods industry.

Andy Michuda, CEO at Sopheon, stated: “It is an honor to be recognized year after year. It means that much more that innovation leaders choose to partner with Sopheon in today’s consumer-driven age when they have such a broad variety of solutions available to them.”

Sopheon’s extensive experience working with innovation leaders − including 25% of the world’s largest and most successful consumer goods, food and beverage manufacturers − has uniquely positioned us to enable our clients to execute strategic plans for digital transformation, speed and business agility. Sopheon’s mission is to support customers in achieving exceptional long-term growth and profitability, ensuring relevance for their long-term future.

As stated by CGT magazine: “In these modern times, you can’t run a successful, competitive consumer goods business without forging a solid foundation in technology. And you can’t build that foundation without enlisting help from reliable technology and service partners.”

As part of CGT’s Readers’ Choice Survey, executives from consumer goods organizations were asked to identify the NPDI technology solution that best supports their efforts to deliver innovative products to market. Sopheon’s Accolade® decision-support and process-automation software is helping innovation leaders like PepsiCo, Honeywell, P&G, Electrolux and ConAgra Brands innovate with the pace of small companies, while leveraging the scale advantages of a larger organization. At the same time, they are able to reconcile the pull between ‘responsible, safe, secure’ and ‘speed, ease of use, smart’ as they compete in today’s fast-moving digital market. As a result, they are able to quickly move from Vision to Execution to Performance.
