Company Honored With the 2008 Global Emerging Company of the Year Award for its Ability to Optimize Process Efficiency and Maximize Profitability
"The organization's strategic market position of an integrated closed-loop solution built on an open service oriented architecture (SOA) enables seamless integration with existing Information Technology (IT) investments, and collaboratively shares data between product design and supply chain," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Muthuraman Ramasamy. "Furthermore, aerospace customers have extensively relied upon the predictive nature of Intercim's solution to foresee and quantify events, which helps them minimize process waste, maximize overall process efficiency, and shorten time-to-market at favorable costs."
Driven by technological advances and shrinking profit margins, aerospace industry customers are increasingly collaborating with suppliers and partners to rectify quality issues across the industry while at the same time progressively moving towards composite manufacturing capabilities, which require an all-embracing process compliance to maintain uniform product quality across the enterprise.
In such a competitive market scenario, Intercim's acquisition of Pertinence in 2007 has proved to be a real benefit, since it has helped the company to integrate manufacturing intelligence (MI) tools with MES solutions
"Competition is fierce on this market and there is a need for a technologically advanced MES solution that can seamlessly integrate product design and supply chain across the enterprise. Intercim's cutting-edge end-to-end solution provides an intelligent mix of automated business process management, advanced predictive analysis, process execution capabilities, and quality management," notes Ramasamy. "This integrated solution is extensively scalable, offering easy accessibility for users within and outside the client enterprise."
According to Frost & Sullivan, Intercim's key differentiating factor, when compared to that of its peers, is its high degree of usability and the capability of the solution to be extensively configurable. The solution precludes expensive software updates and re-coding by allowing customers to have complete control over the solution to automate their business processes and manipulate overall process performance.
Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has emerged as a significant participant within its industry. The winner is perceived to have exhibited outstanding management, superior market growth, exceptional customer service, and the ability to combine technology and successful strategic initiatives, with the know-how to take advantage of market changes through the execution of innovative strategies within the existing competitive landscape.
"Intercim was able to successfully implement an ambitious strategy to provide the manufacturing industry with a unique software solution to answer pressing challenges, such as a reduction in production costs and a shorter time to market," explains John Todd, CEO of Intercim. "We are very proud to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan, recognizing the value we bring to our customers worldwide."
