     "Quintiq is off to a great start in 2014 having just been selected by

Frost & Sullivan for a Global Customer Value Leadership Award. Most large-sized

SCP&O solution providers address operational complexities across several

industries; however, they often miss the nuances and industry applications that

are unique to the supply side of process industries," said Frost & Sullivan

Senior Industry Analyst Naveen Kumar Ramasamy. "Quintiq plugs this gap with the

Quintiq technology platform and maintains a high degree of flexibility between

standardization and customization, with its architecture built in a way that

the platform can be customized without any disturbance to the underlying

layers," noted Kumar. "In addition, Quintiq's comprehensive customer support

services program enables its customers to reap high returns on investment."

    "We built upon and solidified our leading market position, and I am proud

of the records we achieved in our 16th year," said Victor Allis, CEO of

Quintiq. "Customers from diverse industries around the world are creating

competitive advantage and achieving new levels of performance and efficiency

with our planning and optimization software. With Quintiq, companies can

embrace what makes their business unique and help them achieve their business

goals with least cost and highest performance result."
