SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Total Communicator Solutions, Inc., (TCS) a leader in mobile brand management, contextual intelligence and application development, has been honored with a Red Herring Top 100 Global award, which recognizes leading, private startups from North America, Europe and Asia. The award celebrates the innovations and technologies of selected companies across their respective industries.
TCS is listed under its patented Spark Compass™ mobile proximity platform, which brings personalized, contextual experiences to everyday life through mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The Top 100 Global award follows Spark Compass’ distinction as a Red Herring 2016 North America award winner, earned earlier this year.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a hallmark for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that firms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way people live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the top 100 winners. We believe Spark Compass embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Spark Compass should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Erik Bjontegard, CEO and founder of Total Communicator Solutions, Inc., said, “Spark Compass is redefining how people interact with devices like smartphones, tablets and wearables. We’re excited that Red Herring recognizes how Spark Compass is able to uniquely elevate context to be just as fundamental as content in delivering personalized, contextually intelligent experiences.”
