WALTHAM, Mass. — May 30, 2012 — Brainshark, Inc., the leader in online and mobile presentations, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMobile Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMobile 100 signifies leadership among industry peers, as well as game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.
Following a rigorous three-month selection process, the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts, which include investors, bankers and journalists worldwide, recognized Brainshark based on the following five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz. Brainshark was honored in the “Enterprise Apps” category for its SlideShark app for the iPad.
“With the quickly maturing mobile market, opportunities are opening up almost faster than entrepreneurs can respond,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “There is no question that mobile is becoming the new norm, with smartphone and tablet penetration increasing exponentially in both consumer and business environments. App developers are bringing their disruptive skills to the corporate and enterprise world as well, giving scope and purpose to mobile users in the business world. This explosive market is being driven in large part by the companies that made this year’s OnMobile Top 100 list. We congratulate the OnMobile 100 companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in today’s private company marketplace.”
SlideShark lets mobile business professionals around the globe view and present PowerPoint presentations on the iPad the way they were meant to be seen – with fonts, colors, animations and graphics intact. The app also enables users to share links to presentations for on-demand viewing on any device and then track the viewing results. Since its launch in October 2011, SlideShark has consistently garnered more than two downloads per minute, 24x7, and is ranked among the top productivity apps in Apple’s App Store.
“SlideShark is a one-of-a-kind app that mobile business professionals have come to rely on when they need to view, share and track PowerPoint presentations on the iPad,” said Brainshark CEO Joe Gustafson. “We are honored to be recognized as an OnMobile Top 100 winner and will continue to provide our customers with the innovative mobile features and functionality they need to create effective presentation content that can be accessed on-the-go and from any device.”
