Zmags Named a Finalist for the 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Americas Award
Zmags announced today it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
“Tablets, smartphones and social media are transforming commerce and the way consumers are discovering and purchasing. Yet existing models for ecommerce are struggling to keep up with the demands and desires of the connected consumer,” said Michael Schreck, president and CEO of Zmags.
“Using Zmags, forward-thinking retailers and brands are creating completely new kinds of digital shopping experiences that stimulate customer engagement and brand loyalty across all channels, driving unmatched engagement and revenue uplift. Our brand clients are experiencing up to a five times increase in page views, a 40 percent increase in order values and a 2x lift in conversion rates.”
Zmags was a proud winner of the Red Herring 100 Europe in 2009, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
“This year was very rewarding,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “There are so many great companies producing truly innovative and amazing products and technologies. We had a very difficult time narrowing the field and selecting the Finalists from such a group of future stars. Zmags shows great promise therefore deserves to be on the short list. Now we are faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners.”
Finalists for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Americas award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and other sectors completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
The Finalists are asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Americas Forum in Santa Monica, California, May 21-23, 2012. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of May 23 at the event.
