Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

The Stratus Award recognizes those companies innovating in cloud computing and providing innovative offerings that are truly differentiated in the market.

A significant factor in OutSystems success in 2014 is the successful launch of the companys free cloud offering, which enables developers to easily create and deploy custom mobile and web apps for free in the cloud. OutSystems Platform free cloud offering is powered by the same robust application platform used by large enterprises such as Randstad, Liberty Insurance and Charles River Labs.

In the first six months since its launch, over 8200 users in 154 countries have activated a free OutSystems Platform personal account. These users have published over 8600 unique applications and more than 591,000 app versions, resulting in over 12.5 million page views across these applications.

OutSystems has seen significant momentum over the past year, as enterprises recognize that existing development approaches arent allowing them to keep up with user demands for mobile and customer-facing applications, said David Holmes, vice president of marketing of OutSystems. Nearly 400 enterprises have adopted OutSystems Platform to help them rapidly deliver applications that address the urgent business need to innovate and extend functionality and data to an increasingly mobile audience including employees, customers and partners. Being able to build and deliver these applications in the cloud reduces infrastructure needs and costs which speeds delivery of these business-critical apps. We are pleased to accept the Business Intelligence Groups award as the latest recognition of the superiority of our platform in bringing new apps to market in record time, delivering a compelling experience for developers and users alike.

With more than 60% of businesses now utilizing the cloud for performing IT-related operations, the organizations selected are helping to accelerate the development and adoption of cloud-based services, said Dawn Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. We are proud to reward OutSystems in the 2014 Stratus Awards. They are clearly leading the market in delivering real value to their end customers by leveraging the cloud.

SupplierSoft Announces Multiple Wins with S&P 500 Customers for Conflict Minerals Software


Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) January 22, 2014

SupplierSoft Inc, a pioneer in cloud-computing based supplier relationship management software, today announced several wins for its Conflict Minerals Software, including multiple S&P 500 customers.

SupplierSoft Conflict Minerals Solution helps manufacturers comply with SEC filing requirements as defined in section 1502 of Dodd-Frank Act. Starting in 2014, public US companies and certain foreign companies must declare in their annual SEC filing whether they have Tantalum, Tin, Gold or Tungsten (3TG) in their products, and if so whether these metals originate from mines fueling civil conflict in one of nine covered countries in Africa. While SEC estimates that 6000 US companies will be required to file a Conflict Minerals Report, the expected supply chain ripple will require as many as 12,000 US companies and potentially 195,000 companies to perform some level of supply chain analysis. SupplierSoft automates the achilles heel of Conflict Minerals Management – reaching out to suppliers, collecting and validating supplier responses, and finally rolling-up supplier responses so that companies can do their SEC filings or respond to customer inquiries. The software supports the industry standard EICC/GeSI Template (Conflict Minerals Reporting Template) created by the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI). The system delivers rapid ROI through improved productivity, reduced risk of errors and improved customer satisfaction.

In an era of relentless outsourcing, the Conflict Minerals reporting requirement represents yet another example of business processes where manufacturers must efficiently collaborate with their suppliers whether it is on compliance, quality or commercial aspects of the relationship. To effectively manage suppliers in this environment, companies are looking for strategic Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) cloud-based platforms that can help them manage all facets of a supplier relationship and are quick-to-implement, while delivering quick ROI,” said Balu Sharma, CEO of SupplierSoft. “We are excited to have multiple S&P 500 customers select SupplierSoft after doing an extensive review of 10+ different software vendors.

About SupplierSoft

Customers start by automating the highest ROI processes, knowing that they can manage other processes in future. Ease-of-use, a consistent user-interface, global performance and a single login across multiple solutions makes supplier adoption high. SupplierSoft solutions help reduce operational costs and supplier risk, ensure supplier compliance, improve supplier quality and improve customer satisfaction.

The solutions are built on top of Force.com, a proven enterprise platform from salesforce.com for building and running business applications in the cloud.
