SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 08, 2020 – The Business Intelligence Group today announced that it has awarded Fictiv a 2020 Stratus Award in its annual business award program, which highlights the companies, products and people offering unique solutions using cloud technologies. Fictiv was recognized as a Cloud Disruptor for delivering rapid digital transformation to the decades old status quo within the manufacturing industry.
Fictiv is revolutionizing the $13 trillion manufacturing industry with a cloud-based, AI-powered system that replaces antiquated and outdated methods of communication and manufacturing. Fictiv’s Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem enables hardware companies of all sizes to build hardware faster by cutting prototype, testing, and new product introduction cycles in half, delivering better quality and providing greater transparency, quality and shipping processes than conventional manufacturing or contract manufacturing methods.
“The global pandemic has highlighted long-standing weaknesses in manufacturing, demonstrating that supply chains and manufacturing ecosystems must be robust, transparent, agile, and – above all – digitally enabled,” said Dave Evans, Fictiv CEO and co-founder. “We are delighted to be awarded the title of Cloud Disruptor for our work in actively bringing out this new reality on behalf of designers, engineers, and supply chain professionals.”
Fictiv mitigates risk for product teams though cloud-based technology that allows for shifting and sharing data loads within the manufacturing network.
