Landslide Technologies Named Top 100 Private Companies in Eastern U.S. by AlwaysOn
Company Selected as Technology Innovator in SaaS and Enterprise for 2009
Landslide Technologies today announced that it has been selected to the 2009 AlwaysOn East 100 List. The AlwaysOn East 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list. Landslide was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on demonstration of growth, market opportunity, quality of innovation and customer traction
Landslide Technologies was selected for its solid customer traction and focus on helping companies build world class sales organizations. Landslide’s Sales P3 System is the only cloud computing offering that combines powerful sales process software with live personal sales assistants to provide salespeople a complete environment for increasing sales.
From providing the ability to embed proven sales processes in the day to day lives of sales reps, to providing the right job aids at the right time and personal assistants to offload data entry work, the Landslide Sales P3 System is purpose-built for the sales organization.
“We selected Landslide because of their single-minded focus on increasing sales,” said Chris Roussos, CEO, OrthoSynetics. “We expect to see significant improvement in our sales team’s productivity by supporting them with best-practice sales processes and the personal live assistants.”
Since its launch in 2006, the company has received awards from industry experts including the ‘Cool Vendor’ award from Gartner Group, the Product Innovation Award from Frost and Sullivan, the ‘One to watch’ by CRM Magazine two years in a row and has been twice included in Gartner’s SFA Magic Quadrant as a Visionary company. In addition, the company’s focus on sales process and the needs of the salesperson has won it endorsements from leading sales experts such as Michael Bosworth, Jill Konrath, Gerhard Gschwandtner, Keith Rosen, Dave Kurlan and many more.
“The AlwaysOn selection of Landslide is a validation of what our customers have known all along: that Landslide is the first true sales-centric offering built with a mission to help salespeople succeed,” said Razi Imam, CEO, Landslide Technologies. “Our focus on helping salespeople close more deals rather than just capture more data is what distinguishes us from traditional sales offerings.”
Landslide and the other AlwaysOn East 100 winners will be recognized at the Venture Summit East Conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston, MA, on May 20-22. This two-and-a-half day executive conference is co-presented by J.P. Morgan and Forbes and will feature presentations and high-level debates from the most influential institutional investors, venture capitalists, corporate buyers, investment bankers and research analysts in the Eastern U.S.
“It’s no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The companies on this year’s list have not only created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year’s award and wish them all tremendous success in the future.”
