Last month, telecom industry leader FierceMarkets announced the winners of the 2016 Fierce Innovation Awards Telecom Edition. Zipwhip took home the prize in the Business Services category. Judges remarked,
“This solution takes the next generation of teenagers into account and provides a good solution for enterprises to reach that generation.”
FierceMarkets is a leader in B2B e-media and the publisher of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom, and FierceCable. They reach more than two million executives in more than 100 countries daily. During the Innovation Awards, candidates were judged on four criteria: effectiveness, ease of use/ROI, true innovation, and end-user impact. Finalists’ applications were reviewed by a panel of judges from major telecommunications companies including Verizon, Comcast, Sprint, and T-Mobile. A big thank you to the judges for selecting Zipwhip as the winner!
One of the questions posed to the judges was, “Has the product pioneered a new way of doing things?” Or, in other words, is it disruptive? At Zipwhip, disruption is the bane of our existence. We aim to eliminate the phone tag continuum and change the way businesses connect with their customers. Texting is truly a game-changer in that it saves time and doesn’t break productivity, unlike phone calls. We believe that within five years, every business phone number will be textable. And we’re here to make that happen.
