RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KnowledgeTree, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions that help companies "rule their documents," today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.
Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and a go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.
KnowledgeTree makes organizations across hundreds of global clients more efficient. Its cloud-based tools help companies create, discover and manage business documents anywhere. Delivered through the browser as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and through powerful mobile applications, KnowledgeTree can be richly customized. Its collaboration and organization tools can be adapted to support complex information architectures demanded by business users. Its structured workflows can support companies' complex document approval processes. Additionally, KnowledgeTree's rich set of APIs enable integration with other technologies, expanding the value that can be delivered.
The company's solutions solve the document management challenge by uniting structured and social tools. This allows global teams to co-author documents efficiently, discover valuable content across the organization and accelerate the approval of critical business documents.
"Emerging doesn't mean what it used to," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering."
Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com.
