IgnitionOne is nominated in the categories for Most Innovative Company of the Year (Up to 2,500 Employees) as well as the New Product or Service of the Year – Software (Marketing/Public Relations Solution). Netmining is a finalist in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year (Up to 100 Employees) category.
“Innovation is a core part of our heritage and over the last decade we have been the first to introduce many new concepts to the market, including attribution, integrated user scoring, portfolio optimization, SmartRemarketingSM and the first ever Digital Marketing SuiteSM,” said Will Margiloff, CEO of IgnitionOne. “IgnitionOne and Netmining are proud to be finalists in these three highly competitive categories and to be recognized for our innovative work to simplify marketers’ lives, improve performance and better understand and reach audiences.”
Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.
“The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher.
