Foster City, Calif., Jul 15 - Arena Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of online product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Start Magazine had honored it as one of Start

“This year’s Hottest Companies have one very vital factor in common: they are all providing innovative and influential technology for manufacturers, and they’re doing it more successfully than their competitors,” Start stated. “By and large, technology coming to market and maturing in manufacturing is polished, intelligent, and worthwhile to a degree the industry has never seen. And the best part is, it has to be. That’s because manufacturers are wiser and justifiably more cynical to the ways of technology investment and implementation. If technology doesn’t cut costs and drive efficiency, and cannot prove beyond any doubt that it will deliver on its promises, it doesn’t get bought. In this economy, it’s that simple. Manufacturers simply know better now than to invest frivolously in business software.”

“Arena Solutions is honored to be one of the very few PLM companies to make Start’s “Hottest Companies” list and one of only four companies to be included in the “Up and Coming” category” said Michael Topolovac, Arena’s Chief Executive Officer. “We couldn’t agree more that customers today are demanding demonstrable value from software vendors, not vague promises. Arena’s success stems from its web-native delivery model -- unique within the PLM market -- which enables us to provide enterprise-class PLM software with less risk, hassle, and cost than any other company in the market.”
