Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) July 11, 2009
Bowen & Groves the developer of M1 by B&G™, a leading Manufacturing ERP System, designed for the small to medium manufacturer, has been recognized in the 2009 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, for Supply Chain Innovation for the third consecutive year.
Eight years ago, Supply & Demand Chain Executive announced its first "100" list of supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations that were helping lead the way in transforming companies' supply and demand chains. This year the magazine focused the criteria for its "100" feature on economic recovery.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive has identified leading providers of supply chain services and technologies who are helping their customers and clients both respond to the downturn and, more importantly, position themselves for growth ahead. Based on submissions to the "100" from end users and solution providers, the judging committee for the "100," including the editorial staff of the magazine, in conjunction with the editorial advisory board, has compiled a list of leading supply and demand chain innovators. Final recipients, including Bowen & Groves, are featured in the cover story of the June/July 2009 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online at http://www.SDCExec.com/SDCE100.
"Our goal with this year's '100' is to highlight a broad range of solutions and services targeted at a variety of industries, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes, and assisting in the transformation of a diverse mix of the functions that make up the supply chain," explained Andrew K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Therefore, our judging committee looked for solutions across a variety of industries, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes, and assisting in the transformation of a diverse mix of the functions that make up the supply chain."
"It is an honor to be included in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for the third consecutive year," Daniel Noonan, Managing Director of Bowen & Groves said. "This recognition underscores our continuing commitment to helping our customers face the challenges and pressures of today's globally competitive manufacturing environment. M1's innovative functionality allows small and medium manufacturing businesses to tap into the same benefits of ERP as larger companies, with easy and affordable implementation."
The recognition by Supply & Demand Chain Executive follows the acquisition of B&G by ECi Software Solutions in May 2009. ECi Software Solutions is a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions. "We are delighted that B&G has been recognized again in the '100' list," said ECi President and CEO Ron Books. "B&G is a recognized leader in manufacturing with a solid reputation for quality software and unparalleled customer service through its M1 ERP system. ECi shares B&G's focus on customers, and looks forward to a strong partnership which will take the M1 software development and customer service to the next level."
The M1 Design Studio is one of the most significant and innovative features of M1, and gives manufacturers the ability to design the system to suit their business.

With M1, companies can maintain their competitive advantage and fit the system to their business and unique processes, and all customization is maintained with every new upgrade.
ECi will continue to market, support and enhance the M1 ERP software. Sales, support and development of the product will continue to be handled by B&G's current staff from the company's existing offices in Australia and the United States.
