Alpharetta, GA, October 17, 2017 — Aptean’s Factory MES solution has been named one of the “KMWorld Trend-Setting Products of 2017,” a recognition the company has received for more than a decade for software considered ahead of the curve in filling a niche in the marketplace.

“Our 2017 KMWorld Trend-Setting Products result from innovation and imagination, as well as from evolution,” says Sandra Haimila, editor of KMWorld. “The products reflect the ingenuity of the developers and the diversity of invention. More than anything else, the 2017 Trend-Setting Products have captured our attention because of their ability to meet business needs by transforming information into insight.”

KMWorld, a leading knowledge management information source, selects its trend-setting products based on a panel of judges comprised of colleagues, market and technology analysts, KM theoreticians and practitioners, customers and a select few savvy users in a variety of disciplines. This panel’s objective was to identify products that members believe fulfill the ultimate goal of knowledge management – delivering the right information to the right people at the right time.
