Retailigence Selected as AlwaysOn Global 250 Company to Watch

Local marketing and commerce platform recognized for game-changing technology, innovation and market potential

Retailigence (www.retailigence.com), the leading Online-to-Offline (O2O) Local Marketing and Commerce Platform company, today announced it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Retailigence was chosen by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Retailigence and the AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn’s tenth annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 23rd, 2013.

“Retailigence is thrilled by this recognition by AlwaysOn of our innovative approach to helping brands and retailers leverage online channels to drive more in-store sales,” said Jeremy Geiger, CEO of Retailigence. “Brands and retailers need new strategies to attract shoppers to physical stores where 90 percent of retail sales occur. With Retailigence, marketers can alert shoppers on the go exactly when and where a product they want is available, providing them with the closest, most convenient retail location. Retailigence solutions use product and brand-level insights to not only generate awareness with the right audience, but also guide shoppers along the most convenient local path to purchase.”

The two-day executive gathering at the Innovation Summit highlights the significant economic, political, and commercial trends affecting global technology industries. The goal of the Summit is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global tech industry.

“A mature mobile marketplace, coupled with reliability and stability in the cloud, is bringing innovation and opportunity to the Global Silicon Valley. New ideas and innovations are continuing to expand, with applications appearing and becoming indispensable almost overnight. Both business and consumer users are swiftly adapting to the new digital age, demanding fast response, nimble apps, and reliable infrastructure. This year’s up-and-comers are quickly moving into prosperity and finding an audience with an insatiable appetite for what they have to offer,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The technology marketplace is being bolstered by the companies that made this year’s AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch list. We congratulate the AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch, companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in today’s private company marketplace.”

The AlwaysOn Global 250 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 2013 list.
