I am pleased to announce today that RetailNext has been named the Gold Winner in the Most Innovative Company of the Year, Medium (100-999 employees) category in Best in Biz Awards 2014 International. This awards program is unique in that it’s the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
According to the Best in Biz Awards organization, more than 200 public and private companies representing all sectors of the economy from more than 30 countries were nominated, and honorees were selected in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Enterprise Product of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, and, of course, our awarded category of Most Innovative Company of the Year.
A pioneer in applied big data and retail analytics for physical retail, RetailNext was recognized for innovations in its RetailNext 5.0 platform, specifically the ShopperBase product suite and its new data sources for age, geo-origin, and cross-store spending, as well as new performance analytics and reporting tools, and inbound and outbound APIs.
This award comes just a couple of weeks after we announced our recent $30 million in equity growth funding, including new investments from strategic partners AMEX, Tyco, and Qualcomm. It further validates our company and its patented products, and it will be just another announcement in a long string of exciting product and partner news that we have coming through the rest of the year.
