BPM platform author hailed as one of the most disruptive and innovative software businesses in Europe.
London, UK – April 10th, 2014
Red Herring recognized Bizagi among its Top 100 Award winners today, a prestigious list honoring Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating innovation and technology across various sectors.
“The Red Herring Top 100 Award reinforces Bizagi’s disruptive influence in a very crowded and mature BPM market,” said Jolanta Pilecka, CMO at Bizagi. “The secret to our success is very simple: we create great products, offer them online for free, and provide comprehensive learning tools to empower users to manage their BPM journeys. This unique approach helps us reduce our sales and marketing budgets, so we can reinvest 25% of our revenue into R&D – a figure that is a striking contrast to the single-digit industry average.”
During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of tech companies in the telecommunications, hardware, consumer electronics, medical and pharmaceutical industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
“Each year, the competition gets tougher” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring, “but Bizagi’s breakthrough business model, strong growth, their incredibly loyal customers and impressive user community made them a worthy winner. The company shows all the traits of a Red Herring 100. It is disrupting the ecosystem and succeeding against large tech Goliaths. Its innovations provide a lot of value to the enterprise. And its global team has managed to execute with creativity. They really deserve the kudos.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar businesses in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
“Many of our largest customers started using our free software and only contacted us when ready to roll out 100s of processes across the enterprise,” continues Pilecka. “We believe this transparent business model created a highly vocal user community of over 150,000 active subscribers that are keen to provide invaluable feedback that drives the product development. To date, our focus has been on building our Community’s trust and loyalty; and it’s only now that we’re ready to harness its power. We’ve known for some time that this two way interaction will support the accelerated growth we have prepared for; the Red Herring endorsement is the icing on the cake.”
