Amitive, Inc., which is pioneering a new inter-enterprise collaboration platform, today announced that the company has been named one of Managing Automation’s “2010 Companies to Watch.” The editors of the magazine recognized Amitive for its flexible and affordable Amitive Unity, which is being used to drive the industry’s first on-demand community supply chain management (C-SCM) solution. Built on a cost-effective, low-risk software as a service (SaaS) platform and delivered in a cloud computing environment, Amitive’s collaborative applications are transforming how companies automate and manage inter-enterprise business processes like supply chain management.
Amitive continues to be one of the most widely recognized emerging vendors in its class. In addition to this award, Amitive was also honored this year as a winner of the Red Herring 100 North America award, a winner of the CompTIA SoftwareCEO Innovation Award for “Most Innovative Software Idea,” and as a finalist in the “Most Innovative Company of the Year” category for The 2009 American Business Awards.
“Today’s extended supply chains are more vulnerable than ever, leading manufacturers to seek out new approaches for tracking the movement of goods in a multi-enterprise environment,” said Jeff Moad, executive editor at Managing Automation, one of the most respected publications focused on technology solutions for progressive manufacturers. “We chose Amitive as a Company to Watch because its technology is designed to be flexible, affordable, and configurable to customers’ business processes, all important considerations for companies emerging from the recession.”
Featured in the October 2009 issue of Managing Automation, the fifth annual Companies to Watch list highlights technology companies that are providing unique and compelling solutions that manufacturers can use to solve significant problems while reducing costs and improving competitiveness. This year’s list focuses specifically on companies with solutions that can help manufacturers reduce risk and cope with market uncertainties.
“We’re honored that Managing Automation has recognized Amitive for our breakthrough work in cloud-based collaborative applications,” said Amar Singh, CEO of Amitive. “Amitive Unity helps users effectively coordinate an extended network of global partners in order to help control costs and minimize risks. We have already delivered proven value to our customers with our community supply chain management solution, and we will continue to develop additional inter-enterprise applications as we grow.”
