Five Award Wins Earns InQuira the Distinction as First Inductee in the Innovator Hall of Fame

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2011) - InQuira, the leading provider of enterprise knowledge applications for multi-channel customer support, social CRM and sales enablement, today announced it is the recipient of the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) Recognized Innovator Award for Innovation in Knowledge Management. The company won the honor for its advanced dynamic content publishing capabilities at the spring 2011 Technology Services World (TSW) conference in Silicon Valley. InQuira's new capabilities address the issue of managing large volumes of community knowledge without the burden of traditional manual review processes. This fifth award also earned InQuira the distinction of becoming the first inductee into the Recognized Innovator Hall of Fame.

"Receiving such recognition from TSIA is a tremendous honor," said Mike Murphy, CEO of InQuira. "To be selected as a five-time winner and inducted into the Hall of Fame, we demonstrated how we work with leading enterprise and consumer brands within a wide range of industries to address the issue of knowledge bottlenecks, provide rapid delivery of high-value content, and ensure that mission-critical information receives the proper review and quality control."

The InQuira knowledge platform captures organizational insight and expertise and delivers this collective intelligence to a company's employees and partners. With the explosion of value content being shared in social communities, the InQuira platform leverages dynamic rules to determine high-value content and automates the process to structure and improve this information for valuable reuse. With InQuira, enterprises reach new levels of staff productivity, reducing internal costs, increasing employee satisfaction, and gaining a competitive advantage.

"Technology innovation is a driving force for businesses in every sector of the market," said John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research for TSIA. "InQuira was selected as a winner for its leadership in developing an innovative knowledge management solution that aims to improve the CRM marketplace. We were proud to honor them at our spring TSW event; and it was a very special privilege to recognize InQuira as our first Recognized Innovator Hall of Fame winner."
