Spigit Recognized as a Hot Company in the Emerging Social Enterprise Market

Social Innovation Leader Named as Hot Vendor in 2012 Aragon Research and JMP Securities "Hot 100" Software Company

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) -  Spigit, the global leader in Social Innovation Software, has been honored with two separate awards based on its growth and its contributions to social enterprise technology

Specifically, Spigit's enterprise-grade innovation solution was chosen for inclusion by Aragon Research in its "Hot Vendor Social and Ideation Report" (Jim Lundy, June 2012) in the Idea Management category. Spigit was also included in the JMP Securities "Hot 100" best privately held software companies list for the second consecutive year.

The Hot Vendor list from Aragon Research identifies a list of high impact technology providers from whom their customers can benefit. "Spigit is both a Social Network and an Idea Management engine, all in one offering," said Aragon in the report. "What makes Spigit hot is the unique combination of crowdsourcing and game mechanics that enables their SpigitEngage platform to help enterprises deliver on the promise of finding the next big idea."

JMP Securities compiles the "Hot 100" list by selecting privately held software companies based on: financial growth, products and services, quality of leadership, customers and market potential.

"The social enterprise is no longer a trend, but the future of work and we are pleased to be recognized as one of the companies pioneering this market," said Paul Pluschkell, CEO and Founder, Spigit. "Spigit not only provides the framework for collaboration and employee engagement, but the tools for idea generation and innovation. Companies recognize the need for context and relevancy in social tools as they seek to compete better, enter new markets and evolve their product offerings. Social innovation through Spigit helps our customers achieve this transformation."
