For the first time, Sopheon received special recognition as having received the highest score for customer satisfaction in the NPDI category.

While the list of top 10 solutions is not ranked, CGT does recognize the company that received the highest average user satisfaction rating in this category.
This industry acknowledgement is further proof of Sopheon’s continued commitment to partnering with leading Consumer Goods (CG) companies to recognize and address the challenges these firms face in effectively navigating the innovation and new product development lifecycle, and helping them get innovative products to market with speed and success.
