reQall is pleased to announce the company’s selection as a TiE50 Winner of the 2014 TiE50 Award.
“We are delighted and humbled to receive the TiE50 Award. To celebrate being a three-time winner of the Award, we have released reqallable for Qualcomm’s Toq smartwatch today at TiEcon 2014. reqallable automatically determines and prioritizes messages from all of your most important contacts based on your calendar, communications, activity and location. When you’ve scheduled a meeting, reqallable will alert you to messages from participants, temporarily elevating those contacts to VIP status while holding back other less-critical messages until the meeting is over. When a message arrives, reqallable parses emails and texts to present only the most crucial details all available to you at a glance on the Toq smartwatch.”
“In the six short years since inception, the TiE50 program has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide for this recognition,” said Venktesh Shukla, president of TiE, Silicon Valley. “It is unique in terms of rigor of selection and the broad scope of companies that it reviews for this award and is one of TiE Silicon Valley’s most successful programs.
