MIAMI -- December 05, 2012

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."
