Company to conduct demos of Accolade® software at U.S. conference dedicated to corporate innovation

MINNEAPOLIS – October 16, 2018 – Sopheon, a global leader in enterprise innovation management solutions, will be joining hundreds of corporate innovators at Innovation Leader’s Impact 2018 conference, October 16-18 in Boston, Mass. Impact is designed just for corporate innovators, with attendees representing the biggest names in consumer products, technology and academia.

Sopheon domain and technical experts will be in Boston showcasing the Accolade software – the company’s market-leading innovation and strategic initiative management solution – as part of the conference’s “pop-up demo” feature, taking place October 18 in President’s Ballrooms A and B at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge.

Innovation leaders know that portfolio management is a critical driver of innovation performance. Therefore, all business leaders must be able to easily visualize, explore, prioritize, and resource their portfolios of innovation investments. Sopheon’s Accolade software eliminates the guesswork, helping organizations weigh the trade-offs between risks, rewards, costs and resource requirements to deliver more high-value new products to market faster.

“How confident are you that your investments will have the greatest impact on your innovation performance? Are you optimizing your impact?” asked Sopheon CEO Andy Michuda. “These are the questions we’ll be asking Impact attendees as we share examples of how world-class brands such as Parker Hannifin, Honeywell, Conagra Brands, and P&G drive growth through optimizing the impact of their portfolios.”

Introduced to the market in 2001, the Accolade solution digitalizes enterprise innovation strategy and execution. It captures critical enterprise-wide data for better visibility, connecting all business groups and providing a single source of truth through shared decision-making models and criteria.
