Contactual (http://www.contactual.com), the leading global provider of hosted customer interaction management solutions, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. Contactual 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.
Contactual will be honored at AlwaysOn’s eighth annual Summit at Stanford on July 27th, 2010, at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive gathering highlights the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries. Summit at Stanford’s goal is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global tech industry.
“After examining the companies that are on the AO Global 250 list, it’s obvious that innovation is not only alive and well in the Global Silicon Valley, it’s accelerating in economic power and scope.” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The companies certainly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”
The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international 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.
"Contactual was founded on the premise that software-as-a-service and VoIP would revolutionize the way companies interact with their customers and we are honored the OnDemand editorial team recognizes our leadership in enabling this fundamental shift," said Chris Brennan, president & CEO of Contactual. “With Contactual’s innovative hosted solution, hundreds of companies have experienced dramatic service level and cost improvements in their customer service, telesales, technical support and internal help desk environments.”
