CompuCom Earns Spot on 2012 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America

CompuCom Recognized for Delivering Efficiencies in Full Lifecycle Project Management

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CompuCom Systems, Inc., the leading IT outsourcing specialist, today announced that it made this year’s InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. This is the eighth consecutive year for CompuCom to be included in this prestigious group.

“CompuCom was recognized this year for our innovative approach to full lifecycle project management for IT projects,” stated John Douglas, CIO for CompuCom. “With this new approach, our clients can rely on us to deliver their IT services with more efficiency and auditability.”

CompuCom formed a team to spearhead a project to re-engineer the management of the full lifecycle of IT projects. After just three months, the team delivered a zero-client, cloud-based, end-to-end project management lifecycle system built on industry standards. The system was deployed on our robust cloud and IT infrastructure and provided critical features including single sign-on, real-time reporting to any data point, client access to the system and auditing for accountability and traceability. In cases where the new system has been implemented, clients have experienced consistently high service levels and significant cost savings.

“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America’s best-known companies. Past overall winners include PACCAR Inc., The Vanguard Group, CME Group, National Semiconductor, Con-Way, and Principal Financial Group. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
