Santa Monica, CA – May 30, 2012 -- SalesPortal (http://www.salesportal.com), the cloud-based technology used by enterprises to augment revenue and enhance customer experience in their contact centers, announced today it has been selected as a winner of 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.
Red Herring announced its Top 100 in recognition of the leading private companies from Americas, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 winners. We believe SalesPortal embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. SalesPortal should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Americas.
“We are honored and excited to have been named a Red Herring Top 100 company,” said Saurabh Khetrapal, co-founder and CEO of SalesPortal. “Our team has done a tremendous job of developing our patented technology and the systems around it, and they deserve this award. We believe SalesPortal will change the way companies build and get value from relevant marketing partnerships.”
Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work.
