Clickatell Wins 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Americas Award

REDWOOD CITY, CA, May 31, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Clickatell, a leading mobile messaging provider, today announced that it has received Red Herring's Top 100 Americas award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures.

Red Herring's Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"It is great to see the re-emergence of Red Herring, a much loved publication for many in Silicon Valley and entrepreneurs around the world. We are also honored to be one of the winners of the Red Herring Top 100 America's award," said Clickatell CEO Pieter de Villiers. "This validates our leadership in changing the way businesses engage with their customers on mobile devices, anywhere, any time." As mobile use continues to climb, Clickatell's SMS Gateway is gaining more recognition as a powerful and cost-effective channel of targeted communications, marketing and customer interaction. Clickatell has expanded its offerings by providing solutions for the underbanked in developing regions such as Sub Saharan Africa.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.

"After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Clickatell embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.

Clickatell should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong." Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Americas.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.
