CHICAGO, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisfair, an InterCall company and a leading global provider of virtual events and business environments, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Unisfair was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Unisfair and the OnDemand Top 100 companies were honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on March 28, 2011, at Hewlett-Packard's Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event featured CEO presentations and high-level discussions on how the Internet is disrupting how companies—from small businesses to large enterprises—create, store, distribute, analyze and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
"As the digital information created by businesses continues to grow at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize and share this information is becoming extremely challenging," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
Unisfair enables companies to create branded and engaging virtual environments that help boost their pipeline with qualified leads. Since 2000, industry leaders across all geographies have leveraged Unisfair's platform to support their virtual engagement strategies, resulting in improvements in lead generation, customer engagement, training and recruiting.
