Sopheon Customers Win Three Straight Outstanding Corporate Innovator Awards

Forward-thinking companies have embraced the market trend of InnovationOps to operationalize their innovation efforts, reducing risk and increasing positive outcomes

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sopheon, the InnovationOps software company, announced that its customers have won the Outstanding Corporate Innovator (OCI) Award for three consecutive years. These elite global corporations are recognized by the Product Development & Management Association (PDMA) for their innovation success.

In its 36th year, the OCI Award is the only global innovation award that recognizes sustained and quantifiable business results from new products and services. The PDMA is a global community of professionals whose skills, expertise and experience power the most recognized and respected innovative companies in the world. The founding principle is that successful commercialization of products and innovation requires efficient cross-organizational processes from concept through end-of-life exit.

“Sopheon is proud to work alongside many of the most innovative companies in the world,” said Greg Coticchia, CEO of Sopheon. “People often associate the word ‘innovation’ with young, start-up companies. But innovation is everywhere. A glance at the most successful long-term enterprises reveals innovation at every turn. Great companies are constantly redefining, reimagining and reinventing. The most recent winners of the Corporate Innovator Award are outstanding examples of companies that combine great vision and strategy with a world-class innovation management system.”
