Compiere Earns Recognition as a SupplyChainBrain 100 Great Supply Chain Partner

Open Source, Cloud-Based ERP Leader Recognized for Success in Improving Customers’ Operations and Margin Growth

Redwood Shores, Calif. (June 22, 2009) –

Compiere, Inc., the global leader in open source and Cloud-based ERP solutions, has been named a SupplyChainBrain 2009 100 Great Supply Chain Partner. Compiere was selected based on the company’s success in improving operations and margin growth of customer Southern Book Company (SBC), a leading educational publishing distributor. With Compiere’s ERP, SBC has increased net margins ten percent and more than doubled the company’s revenue.

“In 2009, we received more than 2,700 nominations from small and large companies covering scores of different industries,” states Brad Berger, publisher of SupplyChainBrain. “More than 500 vendors of every conceivable type of supply chain activity were nominated – from very specialized technologies, to a wide range of third-party logistics, transportation and consulting services. The 100 companies that received the most qualified nominations are represented on this year’s list which is published within the July issue of SupplyChainBrain’s magazine and on for the remainder of 2009.”

SupplyChainBrain recently changed its name from Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies to unify the publisher’s identity with that of their website, which many consider one of the most valuable supply chain management information sources on the web today. SupplyChainBrain’s 7th Annual 100 Great Supply Chain Partners Program is the result of a six-month online poll in which supply chain professionals were asked to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service and overall supply chain performance.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a Great Supply Chain Partner,” said John Cingari, Compiere chief marketing officer. “It demonstrates Compiere’s continued dedication to deliver innovative enterprise applications that drive tangible business performance in today’s competitive environment. Having been selected based on the successes of one of our customers is extremely gratifying and indicative of the relationships we foster with customers and partners across our global network.”
