FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- E2open (NAS: EOPN) , a leading provider of strategic, cloud-based solutions for collaborative execution across global trading networks, today announced that customers L'Oréal USA and Motorola Solutions have been selected as winners of the 2013 Manufacturing Leadership 100 (ML100) Awards.

"We would like to congratulate L'Oréal USA and Motorola Solutions on this prestigious accolade. Both organizations are leaders in their respective industries, and continue to demonstrate a commitment to supply chain excellence and innovation," said Mark Woodward, President and CEO, E2open. "At E2open we take tremendous pride in the successes of our customers, and we are pleased to see L'Oréal USA and Motorola Solutions recognized for their achievements."

L'Oréal USA, the largest subsidiary of the L'Oréal Group, the world's leading beauty company, partnered with E2open to implement a strategic solution that enables L'Oréal USA to work collaboratively with its trading partners to make intelligent, timely decisions based on the most accurate information available. The program, internally branded SESAMe, has increased service levels and cycle response times with global inventory visibility, harmonized data exchange, and an exception management framework. A significant reduction in manual processes and intervention has enabled L'Oréal USA to implement an integrated strategy to supply chain planning and execution.

"This year's ML100 winners demonstrate to the world the vast amount of innovation that is taking place in manufacturing," said David R. Brousell, Global Vice President and Editorial Director at Manufacturing Executive. "Whether it is in how manufacturers create more adaptive organizations, re-tool their cultures for greater collaboration, leverage advanced technologies such as cloud computing, or achieve higher productivity through greater operational efficiencies, the ML100 class of 2013 represents the best in manufacturing. Congratulations to E2open for helping L'Oréal USA and Motorola Solutions achieve the distinction of being an ML100 winner this year."

Now in their ninth year, the ML100 Awards honor companies and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Seven of the ML100 categories celebrate outstanding projects undertaken and completed by a manufacturing company. Four additional categories recognize the achievements of individual manufacturing executives. ML100 Award winners were honored on May 15 at a gala celebration following the Manufacturing Leadership Summit in Palm Beach, Florida, a gathering of manufacturing leaders from around the world.
