Emailvision Honored for Growth and Innovation by Inc. Magazine, Software Magazine, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Syntec Numérique with Ernst & Young

Recognition by high-profile organizations affirms Emailvision's leadership among global SaaS providers

(PresseBox) (New York, ) Emailvision, the worldwide leader in software as a service (SaaS) for online relationship marketing, announced today that the company's extraordinary growth and innovative software solutions have earned honors from several respected organizations. The awards, received from Inc. Magazine, Software Magazine, PricewaterhouseCoopers with Pierre Audoin Consultants and Syntec Numérique with Ernst & Young, are a direct result of the company's strong progress and leadership in the email services market worldwide.

Based on the company's exceptional performance, Emailvision has been named among the Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine's prestigious annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. With a 126% growth rate over 3 years, the company ranked at #156 for software companies and #2018 overall.

Emailvision's phenomenal 43.1% growth from 2009-2010 also placed the company as #5 of the world's top 10 "Leaders in Software/Services Revenue Growth ($30M to $100M) " on Software Magazine's 29th annual Software 500 list and at number 1 on the EuroSoftware100 list of top software companies in France.

Produced by PricewaterhouseCoopers with Pierre Audoin Consultants in partnership with the French Association of Software Editors (AFDEL) and the European Software Association, the EuroSoftware100 list also ranked Emailvision as a leader by market share and worldwide sales. The company's growing market share earned Emailvision the top position among SaaS editors as well as 4th place - behind only Oracle, SAP and SAS - for editors of CRM software. Emailvision's strong worldwide sales performance also earned the company 21st place on the list, a significant increase from 34th in 2009 and 29th in 2010.

In recognition of Emailvision's remarkable international growth, the company received the "International Development" award during the first presentation of the "Top 250 software Vendors in France." Organized by Syntec Numerique (the French Professional Chamber for Digital Trade) and Ernst & Young, the prize honors Emailvision as the best-performing company in the category. This was determined by an independent jury chaired by Jean-Bernard Schmidt, founder of Sofinnova with participation of senior executives from Dailymotion, Epita Facebook, HP France, IT-Translation and Ubisoft.

"We are proud that our strong growth and leadership as a software provider have earned recognition by such esteemed organizations," said Nick Heys, CEO of Emailvision. "We credit the ongoing, global success of Emailvision on our ability to innovate and deliver best-in-class solutions for online relationship marketing."

Throughout 2011, the company has been following an aggressive investment strategy, making two major acquisitions that significantly enhanced the company's product offering. In January, the company announced the acquisition of ObjectiveMarketer, a pioneer in social campaign management, and in June, Emailvision announced the acquisition of smartFOCUS, a leading provider of multi-channel marketing and customer intelligence software. Through acquisitions and expansion, the company has also opened offices in Massachusetts, Colorado, California, Canada, Israel, Mexico and Austria this year.
