Covario Receives OnMedia 100 Award for Second Year in a Row

San Diego Firm Among Top Private Tech and Media Companies Cited by AlwaysOn Organization

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - Covario, Inc., one of the nation's largest independent providers of search marketing software solutions and agency services, was selected as one the 2010 OnMedia 100 Top Private Companies by AlwaysOn for the second year in a row

AlwaysOn is a leading media blog and digital marketing event company. The organization's OnMedia 100 is meant to recognize cutting edge media and technology companies that have emerged as leaders in the worlds of advertising, media, marketing, content and branding. The winners will be acknowledged at the OnMedia conference beginning today in New York. 

Now in its fourth consecutive year, AlwaysOn challenged companies to demonstrate that they excelled in five key categories of innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value creation, and media buzz. 

According to Tony Perkins, the chief executive and founder of AlwaysOn, his organization's editorial team and industry experts "spanned the globe to select the top 100 private companies."

"In a tough and uncertain economic year, technology companies have been determined to forge ahead and push the bounders of innovation," Perkins said. "The companies on this year's list are at the nexus of change, using their unique insight to create market-making technologies."

For the second year in a row, Covario was selected among 12 companies in the Advertising Service Providers category, which was one of eight categories to which the top 100 companies were assigned. 

Russ Mann, chief executive and co-founder of Covario, believes his firm was recognized for its breakthrough work in cross-media optimization for its large, enterprise customers, in addition to the lift it has provided to clients through search marketing services.

"Clearly, the team at AlwaysOn views Covario as a solutions company," Mann said. "We continue to receive industry recognition for both our independently licensable SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offerings, as well as our award winning paid search, SEO, media-mix modeling and attribution analysis services."

Last year, Covario was a three-time AlwaysOn award recipient. In addition to its first ranking among the OnMedia 100, the company was also recognized by AlwaysOn as part of both the OnDemand 100 and Global 250 lists of privately-held firms leading the way in SaaS innovations and cloud-computing, respectively.
