“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever. In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
– Dennis Zakas, Managing Partner, Zakas & Leonard, LLP | Chairperson, Top 40 Selection Committee
On Wednesday of last week, the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG)—Georgia’s leading association devoted to promoting and advancing the state’s tech industry—announced the winners of the acclaimed “Top 40 Innovative Technology Company” award.
Purposed with naming Georgia’s most innovative companies in the state, the award honors those making the biggest waves in the regional and national tech scene.
More on that in a moment, but first, we thought we’d take this opportunity to explain how and why AssureSign found its home in Atlanta, Georgia with a 30-second history lesson…
30-Second History Lesson: Why Atlanta, Georgia?
When we decided to migrate from Orlando to pursue the best talent and opportunity in the technology space, we put a lot of thought into end-locations.
We chose Atlanta for myriad reasons, one of which being its outstanding growth and influence with respect to IOT and all things tech.
Atlanta’s increasing influence in the national digital market has stimulated some very lucrative opportunities for Georgia and is largely why Fortune 100 companies like The Home Depot, UPS, Coke, Delta, and possibly Amazon’s HQ2 all call Atlanta home.
(That’s it for today’s lesson… but we still need you to stay after class …)
One initiative helping to proliferate Atlanta’s national tech influence is embodied by TAG’s mission… and part of that mission includes recognizing innovation sparked by the city and state’s top-performing companies.
TAG Recognizes AssureSign as a Top Innovative Company
“The 2018 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community. The 2018 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
– Larry Williams, President & CEO of TAG
To fill this “elite group’s” roster, TAG seeks Georgia-based tech companies having made significant strides in:
financial impact, and
regional & global tech initiatives.
In 2017, we celebrated the 2-year anniversary of AssureSign’s relocation to the Atlanta market, and those two years were chock-full of progress, as we
redefined our core values;
deployed a completely new drag-and-drop UI;
introduced the industry’s only eSign via SMS/text message; and
built on our existing Microsoft partnership by growing our presence within the MS One Commercial Partner Group.
It’s these and other innovations that also inspired our recent Hot Vendor designation by Aragon Research along with being assigned to the “innovator” quadrant in their 2018 Globe publication—purposed with comparing 16 electronic signature and DTM vendors.
“By leveraging our robust and capable solutions, businesses can digitally transform their document completion process with a regionally and nationally acclaimed electronic signature product. Seeing our innovation earn the attention and recognition of TAG is both an honor and exciting as Georgia continues to expand its footprint among the nation’s top technologically innovative states.”
– David Brinkman, President & CEO of AssureSign
AssureSign will be recognized at TAG’s 2018 Summit on March 20th and 21st at the Cobb Galleria Centre just outside of Atlanta.
