Panjiva Lauded as One of the Year's Best Data Products by Leading Research Firm

Awarded "Model of Excellence" for Innovative Global Sourcing and Monitoring Data at DataContent09

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 2, 2009) - Earlier today, Panjiva, the leading source of objective information on global suppliers, announced that the company received the 2009 Model of Excellence Award from InfoCommerce Group, a consulting and research firm focused on the business information publishing industry and organizers of DataContent09. Panjiva was selected for its innovative data products and robust supplier intelligence platform which, according to event organizers, is "blazing new trails" in the area of global sourcing and supplier management.

Distinguishing Panjiva's supplier intelligence platform is the company's commitment to integrating new, diverse data sources. Through the onPanjiva program, organizations with information about global suppliers can apply to publish this information via Panjiva Search, the most comprehensive search engine for global trade. onPanjiva is part of Panjiva's broader strategy to continually build its data sources as a means of providing clients with the robust information they need to make strategic supply chain decisions.

"Winning this award from an organization that knows our industry so well is an enormous accomplishment and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the entire Panjiva team," noted Panjiva CEO Josh Green. "We've made tremendous strides in the last year -- evolving our technology and products, integrating new data sources through the onPanjiva program and on-boarding new customers. This award provides an opportunity to celebrate our success and thank everyone who has contributed."

Winners of the 2009 Model of Excellence awards were selected from a group of ten finalists and announced Wednesday at the Data Content09 Conference in Philadelphia.

"With so much innovation coming out of the data industry, tracking it is hard, and making sense of it is even harder," said Russell Perkins, Founder and Managing Director of InfoCommerce Group. "The impetus behind the Models of Excellence was to answer the one question our firm is constantly asked -- Who's doing it right?"
