Our recognition by the Hot Ticket Awards validates our position as a growing, exciting and rewarding company to work for in the DC region.

Parature, a global leader in cloud-based customer engagement software, announced today that the company has been named a finalist in the 2012 Hot Ticket Awards in two categories: Hottest Buzz and Hottest Company Culture. The awards are hosted by the Northern Virginia Technology Council, a membership and trade association for the technology community in Northern Virginia, and the largest technology council in the country, serving over 1,000 companies from every facet of the tech industry.

Contributing to Parature’s “buzz” factor is its Parature for Facebook solution which was the first to help companies directly engage with customers on Facebook, and the company’s social momentum which is centered around a dedicated content marketing strategy. Parature maintains a strong social presence through the use of its largely popular customer service blog which is shared across all major social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and others, and was recently named a Top 10 Social Customer Service Blog for 2012. As a company that has developed a successful social media monitoring and response tool for customer service that is used by major national and worldwide brands, Parature also uses this tool within its own organization to actively monitor its own reputation and engage followers in social conversations.

Parature’s highly collaborative office environment allows employees to form tight knit teams with one common goal: to make Parature and its products a success for customers. From the company game room (complete with a dartboard, Xbox and Kinect) to monthly “town hall” meetings, Parature offers a positive experience within the office that is also seen in its high dedication to customer service. As a Hottest Company Culture finalist, Parature continually updates and improves the employee experience – through the use of open communication, philanthropy and competitive benefits – to make sure that it is competitive with top tech companies in the Washington, DC metro area.

“Our recognition by the Hot Ticket Awards validates our position as a growing, exciting and rewarding company to work for in the DC region,” said Duke Chung, chairman and co-founder of Parature. “Making the finalist list is an especially meaningful recognition for us: we pride ourselves on our tight knit company culture, and our strong reputation as a thought leader in the customer service industry is top priority as well.”
