NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Videology -- one of the world's largest video advertising technology platforms -- was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year category in The 12th Annual American Business Awards on September 12, 2014. This comes right after Videology announced its revenue is expected to approach 300 million in 2014 (http://bit.ly/1v8pJ7o).
The Videology platform is designed to specifically address the needs of TV-centric, brand advertisers. Unlike many technology platforms in the "programmatic advertising" space, Videology allows advertisers to plan video in a reserved manner, similar to the way TV is bought and sold. The strength of the technology, based on a math-based approach of portfolio optimization and inventory allocation, means that the platform can forecast and guarantee audiences, rates and volumes to advertisers, up to 18 months out. Combined with market-leading return on investment (ROI) tools that precisely measure marketing and brand objectives, Videology provides clients with a clearly differentiated position in the marketplace.
"As an enterprise technology for the rapidly evolving television and video ad space, smart innovation is a key priority. Our world is changing so quickly that staying ahead of the market is mandatory to ensure that our clients continue to thrive in this converging world of screens and devices," said Scott Ferber, CEO and founder of Videology. "We're really excited and proud to be recognized at the Stevies as the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year, which speaks precisely to what Videology does at heart."
The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 12 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. Videology was nominated in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year category for up to 2,500 employees. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.
"We're delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives this year," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "We congratulate all of the Stevie Award winners, and thank them for the inspiration their achievements have stimulated."
