AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eRelevance Corp., a leading marketing automation service provider for SMBs, today announced it has been named a finalist for Red Herring's 2016 Top 100 Global Award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year's most game-changing private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

"We have created a disruptive tech-powered marketing service for a multi-billion-dollar industry that is ripe for disruption." Red Herring selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models from over 1,000 companies in more than 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America award winners in their respective regions, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including technology innovation, financial performance, growth, management execution, potential globalization strategy, and market share improvement. "In today's economies, the unrivaled technology ubiquity is not only disrupting how we work but also how we live and think. The vast amount of data and intellectual property combined with the innovation and disruption created by today's entrepreneurs is touching every sector. More than 300 startups are striving in the construction field alone. The 2016 Red Herring nominees have proven that while some will worry about a bubble, there is no pause in innovation any time soon. And nothing must be taken for granted in this electoral year," said Red Herring CEO Alex Vieux. "Speed, creativity and unconventional business models are constantly shifting investors' thesis and users' behavior—both are demanding more, not less, from entrepreneurs. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. Constant breakthroughs make recent developments obsolete faster than ever before. "In light of everything, eRelevance is performing exceptionally well in its field and deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global finalists.
