Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) May 26, 2010
Unisfair, the virtual engagement platform leader, has been recognized with the 2010 ThinkForward award by Beagle Research Group, LLC for the practical application of front office business software. Unisfair’s Virtual Engagement Platform has won the first annual award due to its ability to innovate and drive new business processes that reduce various costs-–including transportation and travel–-and fully engage customers as partners in the vendor-customer relationship.
“We wanted to recognize the contributions made by leading and emerging front office software companies in the area of supporting more sustainable business processes,” said Denis Pombriant, managing principal, Beagle Research. “Unisfair’s virtual events not only provide a viable alternative to corporate travel, they have the potential to dramatically reduce an organization’s carbon footprint and travel budgets, and do so without diminishing returns.”
Unisfair has achieved significant momentum in the virtual events space. Demand for the company's technology continues to double year over year, with more than 50 new customers added. In addition, by eliminating the need for attendee travel, Unisfair saved its customers–-who include CA, IBM, ATG, Ariba and Intuit-–an estimated 70,000 tons of carbon last year.
"It is an honor to be recognized by Beagle Research for our significant contribution to making business more sustainable," said Hoang Vuong, CEO of Unisfair. "We share this accolade with our clients and partners who have embraced virtual engagement realizing that while travel may need to go on hold, lead generation cannot."
Unisfair provides virtual events and environments that deliver highly measurable results for the world’s most innovative enterprises. The company’s industry-leading platform enables companies like Ariba, CA, IBM, Intuit, KPMG, Quest Software, and Novartis to implement a virtual engagement strategy across the customer lifecycle.
Unisfair’s virtual events are easy-to-use and offer a highly interactive experience through speaking sessions, exhibition floors and networking areas. By delivering comprehensive attendee data, Unisfair’s virtual events result in highly qualified leads and enhance demand generation, community building and customer advocacy.
Backed by Sequoia Capital and Norwest Venture Partners, Unisfair is headquartered in Silicon Valley and has led the virtual events space since 2000. For more information, visit http://www.unisfair.com.
