Santa Clara, CA - June 18th, 2003 - Noosh, Inc. today announced that iSource Business Magazine named Noosh to its prestigious list of the top 100 e-Procurement providers.
Compared to 2001 -- when three other print management solutions besides Noosh were named to the list - only Noosh made this year's list. In all, a total of just twenty-four companies from the 2001 list made a repeat appearance on the 2003 list.
"Our editorial team and advisory group selected Noosh among the winners because they are leading the way in helping traditional companies make their supply and demand chains more effective and efficient in the print management arena," said Julie Murphree, Editor-In-Chief of iSource Business Magazine. "Being a repeat iSource 100 indicates solid business solutions that are obviously meeting customer needs."
The iSource Business editorial staff began reviewing candidates earlier this year. They conducted interviews with at least two customers that had worked with the candidate over the past six to twelve months in order to assess benefits delivered. Criteria used for judging candidates included:
1. Ease of use
2. Customer service responsiveness
3. R&D program activity
4. Return on investment
5. Supply and demand chain efficiencies
6. Comprehensive of solution
7. Adaptability of solution
8. Implementation time
9. Provider's financial stability
10. Ability to provide a clear solutions development roadmap
11. Ability to provide a tailored solution based on different business requirements
12. Ability of software to collaborate with other disparate systems
The final list of the iSource 100 was selected by the editorial and advisory board staff of iSource Businees and will be included in the June/July issue of iSource Business Magazine, as well as on iSourceonline.com. In the same issue, Editor-In-Chief Julie Murphree will contribute an article highlighting what it takes to be an enabler in today's market.
