Accept Corporation Sponsors Front End of Innovation 2011 Event in Boston on May 16-18

Accept and Ultimate Software to Present Best Practices for Closing the Gap Between Corporate Strategy and Product Execution

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - Accept Corporation, a leader in product innovation management, today announced that it is the Marquee Sponsor of the Front End of Innovation (FEI) event to be held on May 16-18 in the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts. With the theme, "Innovate in a Networked Ecosystem," FEI will focus on strategies and tactics for advancing innovation worldwide and how to push innovation forward in organizations.

As innovation takes center stage as one of the critical components of U.S. economic recovery, companies are waking up to the fact their innovation processes are broken, and looking with fresh eyes at the waste that occurs in their R&D spend. Laura Johnson, SVP of Product Strategy, Ultimate Software, a leading HCM solutions provider, and Bryan Plug, Chief Executive Officer, Accept Corporation, will co-present a case study on Innovation Lifecycle Management with an in-depth look at how to align product execution with corporate strategy to deliver breakthrough products in a hyper-competitive, volatile environment.

The presentation will illuminate how the innovation game today is more complicated than ever with multilayered products that require a careful coordination of complex dependencies, compatibilities, and timing within multiple teams and systems. Critical decisions must be made dynamically as data becomes available and revisited as conditions change. The session will take place at FEI on Monday, May 16 at 11:20 a.m. ET as part of the Annual Service Innovation Summit track. Accept Corporation can also be located at booth #22 throughout the conference.

"Organizations today require a broader approach that calls for a shift from treating innovation as a one-time 'invention' event to an ongoing, real-time process that dynamically aligns product execution with the ever-changing corporate strategy," said Bryan Plug, Chief Executive Officer of Accept Corporation. "This type of strategic agility is no small feat, and requires companies to undergo a fundamental change that drives continuous improvement across organizations, and makes innovation everyone's job."
