San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
FuzeBox, a leader in the enterprise visual collaboration space, has been recognized in the Forbes 2013 ranking of America’s Most Promising Companies. The annual list consists of the top 100 privately held, high-growth companies with bright futures.
“We are thrilled to be included in such a prestigious list and believe it’s a testament to FuzeBox’s commitment to our customers and to creating industry-leading products that focus on innovative and useful features, beautiful design, and ease-of-use,” said FuzeBox CEO Jeff Cavins.
This recognition comes on the heels of another year of incredible growth for FuzeBox. The company was recently included in Gartner’s 2012 Web Conferencing Magic Quadrant, which is a bellwether for the industry. FuzeBox also rolled out its visual collaboration service across the entire Apple ecosystem as part of Apple’s Better Together partnership program, which highlights apps that offer amazing connectivity between Mac, iPhone, and iPad devices. In November, the company became the first in its industry to create a native online meeting application built specifically for Mac computers, allowing anyone to easily and seamlessly run online meetings without having to deal with clunky browser plugins.
FuzeBox products are already in use by many Fortune 500 companies such as Kellogg's and GM, as well hot start-ups like Evernote and Spotify.
One metric never says it all. For the Most Promising list, Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held companies, trying to pin down their trajectories by looking at a slew of variables. Over the course of six months, Forbes reviewed thousands of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size, and key partnerships. Forbes turned to CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data research firm that specializes in assessing private companies, to refine the search. Their MOSAIC software scans 45,000 sources to measure a company’s health. A new distribution deal, for example, marks a positive signal, while the loss of an executive is a negative. MOSAIC gathers those myriad signals into a final score that Forbes uses as an initial guide in producing the list. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produces a final ranking.
