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

Southfield, MICH— September 13, 2012 -Plante Moran, PLLC, one of the nation’s largest certified public accounting and business advisory firms, announces it ranked #128 on this year’s InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. The list was revealed this week at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference which took place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA.

Plante Moran was recognized for its client collaboration centers, an innovative solution launched last year to (1) provide a more efficient, dynamic way to share documents with clients and (2) mitigate the security risks inherent in exchanging personal, confidential documents.

“We’re thrilled to be acknowledged among these other IT innovators,” said Plante Moran Chief Information Officer Doug Brady. “Our client collaboration centers have proven to be differentiators with our clients, and we continue to leverage technology to provide new and innovative solutions to client needs.”

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 they spotlight the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.

“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.”
