RedPrairie Earns a Spot on 2009 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across USA


Professional Services Automation (PSA) initiative recognized as key to enhanced company-wide infrastructure

RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity software provider, today announced that it made the 2009 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. This is RedPrairie’s first appearance on the list, recognizing the company’s Professional Services Automation (PSA) initiative, designed to drive efficiencies and enhance RedPrairie’s internal process as a growing global organization. The 2009 InformationWeek 500 companies were revealed on September 14, 2009 at an awards ceremony held during the InformationWeek 500 Conference at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.

“RedPrairie is not only committed to IT innovation for our customers through our productivity solutions, we are also committed to IT that makes our company more efficient and productive,” says RedPrairie CIO Greg Marr. “2008’s PSA initiative will keep RedPrairie ahead of the pack and ensure the organization is running optimally for years to come.”

RedPrairie’s PSA initiative resulted in a single worldwide system for capturing time and expenses, producing customer billing, forecasting revenue, and implementing global processes for all employees. The successful roll-out of PSA across multiple countries and currencies allows for myriad reporting formats and provides an IT platform for the future growth of the company.

“For over 20 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology,” said InformationWeek Editor-in-Chief Rob Preston. “Year after year, InformationWeek 500 companies harness technology to improve efficiency, boost productivity, drive revenue, and establish a competitive advantage. We applaud this year’s winners, and the CIOs and other executives whose ingenuity and risk taking are at the center of business technology innovation.”

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, now in its 21st year, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. Top winners have included: Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
