The Innovation Showcase features revolutionary startup companies with solutions helping businesses communicate and collaborate more effectively. To be eligible, applicant companies must cite at least one customer currently using the nominated product or service and have revenues of less than $3.5 million. Competition judges selected Innovation Showcase winners based on the potential of the company's new idea, product, or service to advance enterprise communications and/or collaboration.

Selected from over 20 submissions, this year's winners include:

  • Nexistant, a leading edge developer and provider of virtual reception and remote expert videoconferencing applications
  • Plivo, a highly scalable and feature-rich voice and messaging platform wrapped with flexible APIs and backed by 24/7 support
  • Scoop App, a collaborative issue management and support system that lets staff and customers record and describe any issue from their mobile device
  • UberConference, a next generation audio conferencing service with a unique, visual interface

"With only four presentation slots available yet so many fresh ideas, the selection process for the third annual Innovation Showcase award was the toughest yet. Strong applicants boasted so many creative solutions to satisfy the growing demand for communication beyond voice—from adding visual elements to enabling mobile access," said Dave Michels, CEO of Verge1, who managed the Innovation Showcase selection process. "We're excited to award each company with time in the spotlight to reach their most important audience, IT decision makers, while at Enterprise Connect."

"These young and promising companies epitomize the future of workplace communications and collaboration," said Fred Knight, Enterprise Connect GM and Co-Chair. "Innovation Showcase winners are inspiring an overall refresh of how businesses use technology to simplify and streamline the exchange ideas and information—what Enterprise Connect is all about. All of us on the Enterprise Connect team congratulate the winners—and those who didn't win as well. We welcome them to our exhibit floor and are grateful for what they'll add to the event."

Nexistant and UberConference will present Monday at 11:00 a.m. and Plivo and Scoop App will present at 1:00 p.m. In addition to the presentations, the four Innovation Showcase winners will be in Booth 1128, in the Enterprise Connect Exhibition.

The Enterprise Connect Innovation Showcase was coordinated by Dave Michels, a frequent contributor to NoJitter.com, Enterprise Connect's editorial website. In addition to Michels, the Innovation Showcase competition judging panel consisted of enterprise communications experts, including customers and industry analysts.
