START-IT Names Cincom "Hot" Company For Complex Manufacturers

CINCINNATI, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 07, 2006 -- The manufacturing industry trade magazine, START-IT, has released its annual list of the Hottest Companies, and Cincom Systems ( is honored to be on it. Cincom is one of only 40 companies the editors believe is consistently striving to change the manufacturing landscape with the highest level of technological innovation, the broadest array of products and services, and a continued commitment to customers.

"Cincom has built a reputation of being a company that provides smart solutions to manufacturers. That's why it heavily targets manufacturers that make complex products," said editors in the article, which appears in their summer issue. "These companies require a system that is not vanilla that can be used just anywhere, but one that is rich in functionality."

The Cincom solution that impressed editors the most was Cincom's Socrates® knowledge management solution, the enterprise-strength expert modeling environment that drives Cincom's Quote-to-Order solutions ( Cincom Socrates captures the "knowledge" of key professionals within organizations, allowing critical business processes to be streamlined and automated.

"It has often been said that a company's success doesn't rest on what IT (information technology) systems are in place, but that its people and processes are what make the difference in how technology is used," said the editors. "Capturing the knowledge that employees have collected and gained throughout the years is something manufacturers want to do because it will ensure their successes when employees move on or retire.

"With Cincom's Socrates, manufacturers can easily and logically capture the knowledge of its employees, particularly those it considers experts in their field, as well as the processes involved in their everyday jobs."

The Socrates environment is unique because maintenance of applications is not dependent on IT professionals, empowering users to easily make changes and enhancements to Socrates applications as required.
