Chattanooga, Tennessee (PRWEB) June 06, 2017
Skuid, the leading cloud user experience (UX) design platform, announced today its placement on the shortlist for the 2017 Red Herring Top 100 Award for the most innovative companies in North America. The definitive Top 100 list will be announced after the final round of judging this June.
The Red Herring Award—established in 1996—highlights the best and the brightest of the tech industry. The organization prides itself on discovering and advocating for promising companies around the world, which is evident in their record of past winner selections—including Facebook, Google, Yahoo, and thousands of others on the Nasdaq and other exchanges across the globe.
Each year, Red Herring’s editorial team analyzes hundreds of cutting-edge companies and technologies and selects those positioned to grow at an explosive rate. The Red Herring Top 100 evaluation criteria include growth rate, market maturity, disruptiveness of the solution, revenues, and the company's overall globalization.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017."
In the last four months, Skuid received a flood of industry accolades. Skuid won a Stevie Award in May of 2017 and was shortlisted for three international technology awards (the TechWorld Techie Awards in February 2017, Enterprise Software of the Year category; the UK Cloud Award in March 2017, Most Innovative Enterprise Product of the Year category; and the TechXLR8 Award in May 2017, Best Cloud Application category). Each award program has a thorough application process with top industry experts as judges, including analysts, journalists, and tech leaders.
In February 2017, Skuid was placed on Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures list for the second consecutive year. The list is a comprehensive ranking of businesses based in the U.S. that exhibit high-performance cultures. Skuid ranked fourth place in the midsize company category, demonstrating exceptional employee engagement, which directly impacts Skuid’s success.
“We're humbled by the flood of industry accolades,” says Skuid founder and CEO Ken McElrath. “More importantly, we're excited about the ongoing success our customers achieve when innovating with Skuid. With well over 350% ROI, it's our customers who are causing the industry to stand up and take notice. Each award has a very thorough application process, and the judges are top experts, so we're very honored to be recognized with such prestigious praise. But trophies without happy customers would feel hollow. So it's great to receive such awards while at the same time watching our customers achieve mind-blowing success.”
Skuid is honored to be recognized for such a prestigious award and join the ranks of these disruptive companies. Read more about the Red Herring award here.
