Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Intercim's Efforts to Deliver Outstanding Value to the Aerospace Industry

    Company Honored With the 2008 Global Emerging Company of the Year Award
    for its Ability to Optimize Process Efficiency and Maximize Profitability

    SAINT PAUL, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Based on its recent analysis of the
manufacturing execution systems (MES) domain in the aerospace industry,
Analyst Firm Frost & Sullivan has recognized Intercim, LLC, a global leader in
manufacturing and production operations management software solutions for
advanced and highly regulated industries, with its 2008 Global Emerging
Company of the Year Award. The company was given the Frost & Sullivan award
based on its consistent revenue growth, unique pay-per-use pricing model,
ability to provide an end-to-end manufacturing operations solution, and
innovative product suite. The award also acknowledges Intercim's strategic
partnerships with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and product lifecycle
management (PLM) leaders, such as Dassault Systemes, to maximize the value
provided to aerospace industry customers.
    "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 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
    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."
