GXS Earns Spot on 2010 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America

Award Recognizes B2B E-Commerce Vendor's Global Service Delivery Platform

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) -  GXS today announced that it is ranked 75 on the 2010 InformationWeek 500, a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S. The annual list was revealed last night at an awards ceremony at the InformationWeek 500 Conference taking place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA. 

GXS was ranked 6th among the 50 Information technology (IT) companies included in this year's list and the only company focused exclusively on B2B e-commerce. Other IT companies in the InformationWeek 500 include Dell, and Intuit. 

"Growth is today's prevailing business theme regardless of industry or geography, and our customers realize that a high-performance supply chain improves not only a company's top-line, but bottom-line as well," said Karl Salnoske, executive vice president and chief information officer, GXS. "With GXS Managed Services, we're dedicated to helping our customers speed time-to-revenue through faster trading partner enablement, improved data accuracy and higher quality-of-service. We're honored to be included alongside such a fine group of companies."

"For 22 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. "As we start to emerge from the worst recession in decades, the IT focus is now on driving growth -- new sources of revenue, new relationships with customers, even new business models. This year's ranking placed special emphasis on those companies and business technology executives leading that charge."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. Top winners have included: CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
