Sopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for enterprise innovation management solutions, announces its partnership with National Foods Limited, one of the leading foods companies headquartered in Karachi, Pakistan. National Foods Limited (NFL) has subsidiaries in the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Canada.
With a strategic vision to achieve significant turnover growth by 2020, National Foods Limited wants to ensure long-term success by introducing a formalized product development decision-making process to support the fast pace of change in the consumer markets. The team at National Foods recognizes that in order to maintain their competitive edge, they have to increase the pace of new product innovation and improve the success rate of these products. In terms of work process, the team is quite clear about the need to have one source of truth for all data and decisions related to new innovations, better strategic alignment across the different groups of stakeholders, and better visibility at all stages of the product development process to mitigate the risk inherent in investments in bold, new-to-the-world products.
The CEO of NFL, Mr. Abrar Hasan, stated: "After an in-depth evaluation of a number of software vendors, we chose the Accolade Express solution. Sopheon has the expertise and a solid number of customer references in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) space, the solution is Stage-Gate® certified, and we had really good interactions with the Sopheon team as well as CEO Andy Michuda."
NFL aims to achieve new heights of business performance and innovation excellence through this collaboration with Sopheon.
