January 22, 2010

Firm selected as Innovation Enabler for fourth consecutive year

BEACHWOOD, OHIO – For the fourth consecutive year, Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) has named Kalypso, the world’s premier innovation consulting firm, to the Editors' Pick list for Innovation Enablers in its tenth annual Readers' Choice ranking. As part of CGT's Readers' Choice 2010 Survey, the Editors' Pick List recognizes companies that are making a significant impact in the industry, but fall outside the survey’s 10 categories due to their focus or size.

Kalypso was named to the Innovation Enablers list, a selection of companies that support consumer goods companies in their quest for competitive advantage through innovative products and processes. Kalypso was chosen for its work in delivering portfolio management, business complexity management, collaborative innovation, product traceability and product lifecycle management (PLM) services to leading consumer goods companies in 2009. Additionally, Kalypso launched PLM Vivo, a rapid deployment PLM methodology for consumer goods, food and beverage, and retail companies. The firm was also awarded Oracle's 2009 Global Applications Partner of the Year and the North America Specialty Applications Titan Award for the successful PLM implementation at JohnsonDiversey, Inc.
