Sopheon Voted Among the Top 10 Providers of New Product Development & Introduction Solutions by Consumer Goods Executives for the Fifth Consecutive Year
MINNEAPOLIS and LONDON—February 4, 2015—Sopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for Enterprise Innovation Performance, announced they have been recognized for the fifth consecutive year by Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) readers as a top provider of New Product Development (NPD) & Introduction Solutions (http://consumergoods.edgl.com/2015-readers-choice/) for the consumer goods industry.
Consumer goods companies operate in a highly competitive market, and must focus on new product development in order to survive. A key capability for innovation and NPD success, and competitive advantage is the enablement of cross-functional decision-making to define and manage innovation and NPD investments. CGT surveyed consumer goods executives to pinpoint the consumer goods industry’s preferred technology solutions and service providers. To ensure the integrity of the survey, only consumer goods executives were eligible to vote, and they could only take the survey once.
