Market Leaders are helping companies to streamline business processes, maximize profitability and provide greater value to customers.
"Just one year after being named one of our 2007 Rising Stars, Alterian has muscled its way to becoming a Leader in this category," said Joshua Weinberger, CRM's managing editor. "Respondents told us they were impressed with the company's expanded global footprint, its product portfolio, and its technological improvements -- all of which contributed to Alterian landing the highest score in the category for company direction."
Over the past year, Alterian's international presence grew impressively by signing on more than 120 end-user organizations and 15 partners, including several system integrators seeking to generate revenue by implementing Alterian solutions on-premise. "We are delighted to have received this Market Leader Award from CRM, as it provides further evidence of our successful strategy of bringing a best-in-class integrated marketing platform to companies around the world," said David Eldridge, CEO of Alterian.

At Alterian, we strive to continually deliver an innovative integrated marketing platform that simply empowers marketers do more with less. We are continuing to enhance our offering through development and investment, by integrating technologies achieved through strategic acquisitions, including our forthcoming Web Content Management integration into the Platform from our acquisition of Mediasurface."
Market Award recipients were determined through an extensive three-month process and proprietary rating formula that involves industry analysts, financial and corporate information, product and functionality assessments, and scores reflecting customer satisfaction. The 2008 CRM Market Awards were presented at the destinationCRM 2008 Conference at the Marriott Marquis in New York.
