OpenMarket’s Mobile Engagement Platform Wins Two “Best of 2013” Honors from Mobile Star Awards
Leading SaaS Solution Honored for its Ability to Support a Variety of Use Cases Across the Enterprise
OpenMarket, a leading enterprise mobile engagement company, today announced that its Mobile Engagement Platform has been named one of the best products of the year in two categories of the 2013 Mobile Star Awards™ program. The Mobile Star Awards named the platform a ‘Rising Star’ in the Enterprise – Mobile Marketing Solution category. OpenMarket’s enterprise mobility platform also beat out products from prominent mobile technology providers including AirWatch and Good Technology to take home the top ‘Super Star’ designation in the Enterprise – Mobile Messaging, Email or Alerting Solution category.
OpenMarket’s SaaS-based Mobile Engagement Platform allows global enterprises to easily create and support mobile engagement use cases for different departments across the organization, including customer service, human resources, IT/security, operations, sales and marketing. By using a single multi-purpose mobile engagement platform throughout the corporation instead of deploying multiple single-purpose solutions, enterprises save on managing several different systems, simplify vendor management, and reduce integration and training costs. In addition, the OpenMarket Mobile Engagement Platform supports personalization, scheduling, logic and decision-making, list management, user segmentation, and reporting. Through these features, OpenMarket’s platform enables enterprises across all vertical markets to optimize operational processes, enhance internal and external communications, and improve customer experiences.
“After 13 years, the Mobile Star Awards is still the only competition where today’s most exciting new mobile products and companies can compete against established competitors on a more level playing field,” says Gary Thayer, director of the Mobile Star Awards. “A major part of this is because votes are cast by real users who really love the products—these are the mobile early adopters, mobile IT professionals, and tech journalists who dominate our readership.”
“OpenMarket is proud to be recognized alongside some of the mobile industry’s most innovative technology companies and by this esteemed industry and peer-honored awards program,” said Jay Emmet, General Manager at OpenMarket. “The acknowledgement validates the impact and opportunities our mobile platform provides to enterprises that depend on us to power mobile services for customer and employee engagement, and positions us for even greater success in the years to come.”
Since 2001, the Mobile Star Awards program has showcased the best products in categories covering consumer mobile apps, devices, enterprise mobile solutions, enterprise success stories, and technology visionaries. Winners like OpenMarket are chosen by the readers of “Go Mobile™,” MobileVillage’s free bi-weekly email newsletter that delivers informative headline summaries and links to the top mobile stories on major mobile tech sites including: CNET, Engadget, TechCrunch, The Verge, Computerworld, CIO, and many others.
