Technology Group International Named to START-IT Magazine’s 2007 Hottest Companies for Manufacturing Technology
Toledo, Ohio – May 22, 2007 – Technology Group International (TGI), a leading ERP software solution provider, today announced it has been named one of START-IT magazine’s 2007 Hottest Companies for manufacturing technology.
START-IT reviewed companies providing technology to the manufacturing industry and judged applicants on such criteria as revenue growth, client wins, technological developments, and significant events and accomplishments that help set a company apart from the competition.
According to Peggy Smedley, editorial director of START-IT, the magazine called TGI “refreshing” and provided a long list of criteria which they considered differentiators for TGI (www.tgiltd.com). “START-IT editors applaud TGI for providing a solution that is the right fit for the right company. TGI’s honesty with its customers and prospects is quickly inspiring an industry that is looking to grow and prosper despite increased competition. From the editors’ perspectives, it’s a wonderful way for a software company to form lasting relationships and partnerships with its customers.”
As part of this award, the START-IT editors interviewed two TGI customers and wrote an article describing TGI’s unique business philosophy and those items that set the company apart from other ERP providers.
Included in the list of items that “impressed the editors” and were considered differentiators were the following:
All products are written in Delphi so there is no proprietary technology
Source code is provided to customers with each sale
Unlimited licenses are available
Maintenance is free for the first year
TGI offers a money-back guarantee
TGI’s free Software Selection Tool Kit
In addition to the above list of criteria, the START-IT editors were “equally intrigued with how TGI is serving small and mid-market manufacturers with the type of functionality that is just as good—if not better in some cases—than the tier-one technology providers that like to toss their hat into the same competitive ring as TGI.”
Additional information on the award and the full START-IT article is available via TGI’s website at www.tgiltd.com.
