NGC Software® today announced that it earned three top 10 rankings in the 2012 RIS News Software Leaderboard, widely regarded as the retail industry's most prestigious guide to the top retail technology software companies.

Now in its 12th year, the RIS News Software LeaderBoard is produced by the industry's #1 retail technology publication. Based entirely on retailer evaluations, the LeaderBoard ranks technology vendors based on customer satisfaction across a wide range of criteria. The LeaderBoard is a widely quoted, eagerly anticipated annual report that many in the industry have called the Oscars of retail technology. It serves as a guide to help retailers find the vendors and solutions they need with an unmatched level of clarity.

For this year's LeaderBoard, retailers evaluated 100 software vendors in 50 different technology categories. NGC was one of only two PLM/Supply Chain Management providers named to the 2012 RIS News Software Leaderboard, with top-10 finishes in three categories:

  • Targeted Solution Vendor Leaders
  • Criteria Leaders in ROI 
  • Vendor Leaders in Customer Satisfaction

"The Software LeaderBoard represents the 'best of the best' in retail technology software vendors, and NGC Software joins an elite group by being named to the 2012 RIS LeaderBoard," said Joe Skorupa, group editor-in-chief, RIS News. "Return on Investment and Customer Satisfaction are critical measures of a software vendor's performance, and retailers have named NGC as one of the very best in these categories. NGC has distinguished itself not only among PLM and Supply Chain Management providers but across the full breadth of retail technology solution providers as well."

"NGC is honored to be named to the 2012 RIS Leaderboard, and we appreciate this validation from our retail customers," said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D for NGC Software. "PLM and SCM are critical technologies for helping retailers shorten lead times and improve profitability, and NGC is proud to work with many of the very best retailers in the industry."
