TOP 100 title defense

Ranga Yogeshwar congratulates PROXIA on TOP 100 title defense

Ranga Yogeshwar congratulated PROXIA Software AG from Ebersberg on 26/11/2021 for its success in the TOP 100 innovation competition with a personal video. In addition, the science journalist recognized the achievements of this year’s TOP 100 companies at a joint online conference. The occasion was the TOP 100 final, which was originally planned as a face-to-face event. Ranga Yogeshwar accompanied the innovation competition, which was held for the 28th time, as a mentor. In the scientific selection process, PROXIA particularly impressed in the size category A (up to 50 employees) in the category “External Orientation/Open Innovation”. This is the second time the company has been ranked among the top innovators.

In this year’s TOP 100 innovation competition, a total of 300 medium-sized companies in three size categories received the coveted TOP 100 2021 seal. On the occasion of the TOP 100 final on 26.11.2021, all award-winning SMEs came together for the online conference with the competition mentor and science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar.

The corona crisis continues to be a major business challenge, Ranga Yogeshwar made clear. “How do companies react when things they take for granted suddenly break away? When the environment changes radically?” he asked. “True innovators are constantly changing, reinventing themselves and coming up with surprising solutions,” said Yogeshwar in praise of the achievements of the TOP 100 companies. “During the Corona crisis, for example, they identified opportunities and came up with innovative processes in record time,” he said.

Especially in times of increasing importance of digital business models, opening up the innovation process is also important in production companies. With its open innovation principle, PROXIA accompanies companies on their way to digitalization. PROXIA CEO Julia Klingspor even speaks of an innovation boost that can result from close collaboration with customers: “With our partnership-based approach to projects, we help them optimize daily business and production processes.”

As an internationally active MES software solution provider, PROXIA accompanies companies on their way to digitalization according to the open innovation principle. Creativity, speed and specialist knowledge are what count when it comes to innovation success. With its innovative MES software and a wealth of process and production know-how, PROXIA actively contributes to stimulating ideas, technologies and solutions in companies for faster innovation success – and, above all, to putting them into practice more quickly in the company’s own production. “I am very pleased that we have already been awarded the TOP100 Innovation Prize for the second time,” summarizes Julia Klingspor.
