SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsara, a leader in Industrial IoT, has been named to Inc.'s inaugural Best in Business list in the General Excellence category. Inc. created the Best in Business Awards to honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference.
This list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc., recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had a superlative impact on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole. Samsara has proven this impact by developing new technologies for both driver safety and electric vehicles, and in turn, increased the safety and sustainability of the operations that power our economy.
This past year, Samsara iterated quickly on feedback to support their customers' critical work, spanning essential services from transportation and logistics, to food and beverage, and city services. For example, the company recently released a number of new AI Dash Cam safety features that detect distracted driving, tailgating, and mask wearing. Together, these features are part of Samsara's broader safety solutions, which protect drivers on the road and address key challenges they now face due to Covid-19.
In addition to safety, Samsara is committed to helping customers reduce their environmental impact through the use and management of electric vehicles (EVs). Earlier this year, the company developed new tools to help public and private sector fleets adapt and streamline operations when adopting EVs. These tools include reporting to assess EV suitability, real-time charge status, and optimized EV routing.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, "It's been an incredibly challenging year for companies. Across industries, businesses have had to make brutally tough decisions and face unprecedented uncertainty. That's why we knew 2020 called for a new recognition program, something to complement our annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. For Best in Business, companies have prioritized tackling today's problems to lead us to a better future, even if they've struggled to stay in the black."
Instead of relying on quantitative criteria linked to sales or funding, Inc.'s editors reviewed the companies' achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 30 different industries--health, software, retail, business services, and more--and in age- and revenue-based categories. Honorees are featured online atinc.com/best-in-business.
