Four Winds Interactive Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner

Leading Analyst Firm Selects Innovative Companies in Content Management

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - Four Winds Interactive (FWI), an enterprise software company providing visual communications solutions, has been named a "Cool Vendor" based on the April 28, 2015 report titled, "Cool Vendors for Content Management, 2015," by Gartner, Inc. The report evaluates content management vendors that provide IT leaders, HR and marketing strategists with innovative solutions to help them share, deliver, manage and archive content.

FWI is the visual layer for digital businesses, providing a comprehensive platform -- including integrated software and diverse display options -- that gives companies the power to engage their audiences with the right information, on the right screen, at the right time from a single software platform. With applications like executive dashboards, HR information, sales leaderboards, wayfinding, directories, emergency messaging, and more, customers use FWI's software to engage their audiences and drive results.

"We are honored to be designated as a Cool Vendor by Gartner," said David Levin, President and CEO of Four Winds Interactive. "We believe it confirms our commitment to providing the most powerful software platform available to help organizations connect data and content from any source and display it on any screen."

Gartner's report points out, "Enterprises need new content management solutions that can be deployed in the cloud and easily integrate the disparate content silos," and provides the following recommendations for IT leaders, HR and marketing strategists:

  • Assess the ease of use and the user experience for these content management solutions, as well as how the content is consumed and communicated to optimize delivery.
  • Look at SaaS alternatives for deploying solutions such as search and WCM, which have predominantly been on-premises. This approach may offer greater agility, flexibility and economies of scale.
  • Identify options for the integration and interoperability of the different content repositories in the enterprise. These solutions can enable easier access to the content in those numerous content stores.

The average person switches between devices as many as 21 times an hour, making it difficult for organizations to effectively communicate with their audiences. Four Winds helps organizations adapt to this new scenario by providing the platform to integrate multiple data streams and highlight the most pertinent information to employees and customers.
