Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
Vyopta Incorporated, a pioneer in cloud applications for TelePresence video, announced today that the company has won the 2011 Red Herring Top 100 North America award. This award honors the top innovative, privately held technology companies in North America. Vyopta’s technology adapts TelePresence video to business processes which improves customer satisfaction and retention, increases sales and cost savings, and provides greater agility in meeting continually changing business demands.
Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Vyopta embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Vyopta should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
“We are humbled by the recognition and proud to be a part of the Red Herring Top 100 innovators,” said Alfredo Ramirez, President and CEO of Vyopta. “We are excited about our achievements and our efforts in driving the growth and use of TelePresence video for intra and intercompany business applications.”
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of the companies relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
Awards were presented at the Red Herring North America event held on June 13-15 in Hollywood, California. This exclusive conference brought together 200 select C-level technology entrepreneurs, corporate strategists, and venture financiers from across the continent. The forum explored the market's appreciation of innovation as a fast track to success, and how North American firms are leading the charge in many tech sectors.
