For the Second Straight Year, Swirl Wins Stevie® Award for Technical Innovation of the Year

BOSTON, MA—Swirl Networks, Inc., the leading indoor mobile location platform provider, has been awarded the 2018 Silver Stevie® for Technical Innovation of the Year at the 16th Annual American Business Awards, which honors workplace achievements in businesses across the country. Swirl was recognized for the advancements in omnichannel marketing that it is bringing to leading brick and mortar retailers. The company previously received a Stevie Award for Technical Innovation of the Year in 2017.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

“The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. The Awards judges lauded Swirl’s platform as “truly revolutionary,” and commented that “the insight provided by this product is sure to swing the pendulum back in favor of brick and mortar longevity.”

Swirl’s Mobile Presence Marketing Platform enables leading retailers to take advantage of digital location signals (including GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth Low Energy) generated from a variety of third party hardware devices (including WiFi access points, LED light fixtures, payment terminals, BLE beacons, digital displays and more). The Swirl platform plays a key role in connecting physical stores to omnichannel ecosystems that are now in place at enterprise retailers across the country. Marketers use the Swirl platform to generate in-store behavioral data that drives greater levels of personalization and measurement at every consumer touchpoint.

“We are honored that The American Business Awards has once again recognized the innovation that Swirl is bringing to the retail industry,” said Swirl Founder and CEO, Hilmi Ozguc. “As retailers continue to invest in more advanced omnichannel marketing strategies and capabilities, indoor mobile location is playing a key role in bridging the gap between the online and offline worlds. We’re proud that Swirl is leading the way in helping retailers solve this crucial challenge.”
