LONG BEACH, Calif. -- May 16, 2013

Apriso, the leading provider of global manufacturing software solutions, today
announced the company has been recognized as a top IT logistics provider for
the seventh consecutive year by Inbound Logistics Magazine. Apriso’s continued
recognition reflects how well the company’s FlexNet Warehouse application
synchronizes material flow with production and other manufacturing operations
on a global, enterprise scale. Enhanced operational visibility vastly improves
inventory accuracy and manufacturing efficiency to reduce lead time and idle
inventory for improved margins and customer satisfaction.

Apriso’s FlexNet effectively addresses the top five challenges facing
materials management professionals: reduce costs, increase visibility and
customer satisfaction, ease systems integration, and data management (see
Figure 1). Apriso’s unique approach to material flow management offers
manufacturers a highly agile solution that improves responsiveness to changing
market, supply chain and competitive conditions. This flexibility helps
manufacturers to operate with greater efficiency on a global scale.

“Apriso’s FlexNet has traditionally been recognized as a Manufacturing
Execution System. It is great to be recognized by Inbound Logistics as a
leading warehouse and inventory management solution, pointing to the depth of
capabilities FlexNet can deliver, based in part on delivering up-to-the-minute
operations visibility and continuous process improvement on an enterprise
scale,” said Tadeusz Dyduch, senior product manager at Apriso. “As a global
solution, FlexNet helps manufacturers to better comply with enterprise-wide
traceability and regulatory requirements, which includes tracking product
quality from components through finished goods.”

solutions Inbound Logistics readers need to successfully manage their global
enterprises. Inbound Logistics is proud to honor Apriso for innovative
