Award Recognizes Amitive in "Most Innovative Company of the Year" Category for Breakthrough Approach to Community Supply Chain Management

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Amitive, Inc., the pioneer of Community Supply Chain Management (C-SCM), today announced that the company has been named a finalist in the "Most Innovative Company of the Year" category for The 2009 American Business Awards, a program of The Stevie Awards. Amitive is transforming supply chain management for companies that depend on outsourced manufacturing with Amitive Unity, the industry's first customer-specific; "SCM in the Cloud" enabled solution.

"With Amitive Unity, communities of supply chain owners, partners, and customers can leverage our unique architecture and the power of cloud computing for cost-effective and flexible supply chain management," said Amar Singh, CEO of Amitive. "We are leading the industry in addressing the challenges of global, multi-enterprise trading networks, and are honored to be recognized as an American Business Awards finalist for our work in advancing SCM far beyond traditional approaches."

The American Business Awards (ABAs) are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit entries to the ABAs -- public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 22, 2009 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Six hundred executives from across the country are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network.

"Despite very tough economic conditions, many organizations and individuals continue to perform well," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. "The results of the 2009 ABAs thus far are a testament to the resilience, creativity, and hard work of American organizations, executives and workers."

More than 2,600 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories. Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among finalists in final judging that will continue through June 3, 2009.

Built on a cost-effective, low-risk SaaS platform and delivered in a cloud computing environment, Amitive Unity simplifies partner on-boarding, use and maintenance to deliver end-to-end visibility across a distributed community of partners. Amitive helps companies overcome the deficiencies of traditional SCM software with the most flexible, customizable SCM solution available, enabling customer-specific business processes, and freeing users from "management-by-spreadsheet." By optimizing community-centric variables -- such as lead times, shared capacity and quantities -- Amitive Unity drives a continuous synchronization of demand and supply capabilities (patent pending) across all partners.
