BigMachines, Inc. Named to the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Top 100

CHICAGO & BIRMINGHAM, Ala. & PHOENIX & NEW YORK--()--June 30, 2004--BigMachines, Inc., the premier provider of innovative web-based software and solutions for manufacturers, today announced that they have been named to the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for 2004. Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine, the go-to source for complete knowledge and information on end-to-end supply and demand chain solutions, published their third-annual listing of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 in its June/July 2004 issue.

The Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 is an annual listing of the top providers that demonstrate long-term value, relevant industry knowledge and expertise, address specific pain points in the supply chain and continue to drive innovation in their solutions and service offerings.

"With all the ups and downs of the past few years, we've seen any number of solution providers close their doors, get acquired or shift their focus in order to survive," commented Editor Andrew K. Reese. "But we've also seen a significant number of providers continue to build up their customer base, build out their offerings and solidify their reputations for offering effective solutions." Those "supply and demand chain survivors" are the ones the magazine wanted to highlight with this year's Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100.

"We are delighted to be selected as a part of such a prestigious group as the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100," stated Godard Abel, founder and chief executive officer of BigMachines. "The recognition further illustrates the important role that the BigMachines Lean Front-End solution is playing with engineered-products manufacturers looking to address their supply chain challenges by streamlining front-end sales and business processes to achieve operational efficiencies and immediate savings."
