One of the most highly regarded regional awards programs for business excellence, the annual New England Innovation Awards honor Everbridge as a top local company for its commitment to product innovation, customer dedication and consistent market leadership in critical communications.

“From helping Fortune 1000 companies protect their increasingly mobile workforces and respond more quickly to IT outages and cyberattacks, to enabling state and city agencies to rapidly notify residents of severe weather or other threats, Everbridge is solving today’s critical communications challenges for organizations worldwide,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “It’s an honor to be recognized by SBANE as one of the most innovative companies in New England. We are continuing to add new applications and to advance our core platform in order to address more of our customers’ problems at a greater and greater scale.””
Driven by customer demand, the Everbridge critical communications platform sent over one billion messages in 2015, initiating a new communications broadcast every few seconds.

In that same period, the company signed over 500 new corporate, healthcare, and government customers and added 100 new employees to its global team.
“Each and every one of our winners and for that matter, our nominees, are leaders in their space, driving forward this innovation economy to make our lives and our own companies far superior to any other region in the country, let alone the world,” said SBANE's New England Innovation Awards Committee Chairman, Todd Faber, President, The Faber Group. “As the SBANE Circle of Excellence welcomes the class of 2016, I can honestly say it is one of our best yet.”
