Mobile Posse Wins Best in Biz Silver Award for Most Innovative Product of the Year

McLean, VA — Mobile Posse has been named a silver winner in the Most Innovative Product of the Year category in Best in Biz Awards 2014, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

Mobile Posse is the first company to commercially launch rich-media home and lock screen push messaging in North America. AppEnvoy, launched on May 21, 2014, is a revolutionary new way to monetize apps and harness the full power of home and lock screens with rich-media push messages that entice more consumers to engage. Consumers pick up their smartphones upwards of 100 times a day and spend 26% of our time on the home screen alone. That’s why experts are valuing the home screen at a staggering $16B per square inch. Mobile Posse is at the forefront of PUSH 2.0. – the next generation of interactive messaging that enable publishers to capitalize on the opportunities of the home screen.

“We are honored to be recognized by Best in Biz as one of the most innovative products of the year,” said Jon Jackson, CEO of Mobile Posse. “The home screen is the new battleground for immediate consumer engagement. Mobile Posse’s groundbreaking platform helps publishers, carriers, and advertisers cut through the mobile clutter and engage consumers on the most valuable real estate in mobile.”

Best in Biz Awards’ fourth annual North American program was its most competitive yet. As in previous years, the fourth annual program in North America featured a large and distinguished judging panel comprised of members of the media who reviewed and scored the hundreds of award nominations. More than 550 award nominations were received this year in a variety of company, executive, team, and product focused categories. Nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada.

“I salute all the companies in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category. It was inspiring to read about the work they’re doing, and taken as a whole their stories gave a tremendously encouraging view of the state of American business,” said Doug Cantor, senior editor at Inc. magazine, judging his second Best in Biz Awards. “With such a strong field spanning a variety of industries, choosing a winner was a challenge, to say the least.”

Best in Biz Awards 2014 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.
