Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 6, 2010
Workface Inc., the startup behind a new online marketing and social networking service for professionals called BusinessCard2 (http://businesscard2.com), today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the “OnDemand Top 100” winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst a company’s peers, and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Workface was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Workface and the other OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on April 19, 2010, at Hewlett-Packard’s Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies—from small businesses to large enterprises—create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
“As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate this year’s OnDemand 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload.”
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list.
“We believe business is not just about companies, products, and services, but meaningful connections between people,” said Lief Larson, CEO and cofounder of Workface. “In the new social business environment, professionals must manage their online reputation, their ‘personal brand.’ BusinessCard2 users can easily manage, distribute, and market their brand with a compact electronic business card that can include a bio, images, files, videos, slideshows, podcasts, links to their social media profiles, and more. The product lets users have complete control over their online identity, and to distribute it openly across the web.”
