Milano, venerdì 31 maggio 2013 –
Centric Software è entrato a far parte della prestigiosa classifica Top 100 Red Herring North America, che premia ogni anno le cento aziende high-tech più promettenti, scelte tra le società più innovative del Nordamerica.
I criteri utilizzati da Red Herring per la selezione delle 100 aziende vincitrici comprendono le performance finanziarie, il grado di innovazione tecnologica, la proprietà intellettuale e i brevetti, la qualità del management, le dimensioni del mercato di riferimento e la quota di marketshare. Centric, fornitore di soluzioni PLM per la moda, la distribuzione, il lusso, le calzature e i beni di consumo – si è classificata nella Red Herring Top 100 per la categoria Internet/Online, che annovera anche aziende business-to-business.
“La lista dei finalisti riconferma le scelte di eccellenza fatte dagli imprenditori e dagli investitori e riconosce la capacità innovativa delle aziende, che hanno le loro radici nel tessuto imprenditoriale americano”, dichiara Alex Vieux, editore e CEO di Red Herring. “Tutte le nostre conclusioni convergono nel ribadire l’eccellenza imprenditoriale degli Stati Uniti”.
“In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years, because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners.”
“We believe that Centric Software embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture,” continued Vieux. “Centric should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, including financial performance, technology innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. Red Herring complements this assessment potential with a review of the track record and standing of companies relative to their sector peers, which it says makes the finalists’ list a “valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.”
“The Red Herring Top 100 Award is a tremendous recognition of Centric’s innovation and industry leadership in providing PLM software for retail, fashion, footwear, luxury and consumer goods companies,” says Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software. “The award truly distinguishes Centric, and acknowledges many of the company’s key achievements, such as its customer acquisition track record, recognition as best-in-class PLM product, industry-first mobile apps, Agile DeploymentSM implementation methodology and rapid customer return on investment.”
