SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Signifyd announced today that it has honored home networking pioneer eero with its FLOW award for customer experience and digital agency Blue Acorn iCi with its first FLOW partnership award for the two companies’ contributions to creating outstanding experiences for digital consumers.
eero led the world in solving a maddening problem for consumers living in a multi-device, digitally dependent world — spotty WiFi coverage at home. The company built robust and elegant hardware and paired it with sophisticated software supported by machine learning. The result is superior in-home networks no matter where a consumer decides to work, play or enjoy streaming entertainment.
The company exhibited true leadership in the in-home mesh network marketplace and inspired many larger companies to follow suit. It doubled-down on its innovation by expanding its devices and software into network security, parental controls and ad blocking.
Its excellence did not go unnoticed and earlier this year, Amazon acquired eero as another piece in its line of smart-home products.
“eero’s technology is truly exceptional,” said Signifyd Senior Vice President of Marketing Indy Guha in announcing the FLOW award. “But what is even more exceptional is the way the eero team kept its customers at the center of everything it did to design, build and market that technology to consumers who were eager to have it.”
eero’s customer obsession comes through in everything the home networking company does. Its network extension systems are managed through a mobile app and require no tinkering to connect existing networks to the mesh network eero creates.
The company’s compassion for its customers is evident in the design of its routers and beacons — elegant white devices with curved lines and slim profiles. That the devices are objects consumers are proud to display in their homes is no accident.
“We are laser-focused on our mission to make the technologies in your home just work,” eero Business Operations Manager Justin Graham said. “That starts with designing something aesthetically beautiful and extends to making the customer experience simple so your WiFi disappears into the fabric of your home. That customer focus is something that we also really cherish at eero.”
