CHESTER, Pa. and SYDNEY – December 13, 2016 – Optymyze, a worldwide provider of enterprise cloud applications and services for improving sales and channel performance, is the bronze-level award winner in Best in Biz’s Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Medium category.

Winning a total of three awards, Optymyze was also recognized as one of the Most Awarded companies of the 2016 competition for its innovative products and offerings that help businesses improve sales operations.
Optymyze has grown considerably in recent years, with Best in Biz recognizing its strong total revenue growth in 2015, the period in which financial results were reviewed. In the same time frame, Optymyze has nearly doubled its client base as more companies around the globe leverage its solutions to align sales goals and compensation, execute their sales strategies and gain greater visibility into sales performance. Optymyze also retained all existing customers, while net new growth in same-client Annual Contract Value also rose. In addition, Optymyze expanded its hiring within its Sales, Marketing, and Research and Development departments, increasing its global workforce significantly.
“At a time of growing competition, increasing customer demands, and greater M&A activity, more businesses around the world have come to rely on Optymyze solutions to improve their sales operations and ensure their salespeople are aligned with company and individual goals,” said Mark Stiffler, CEO of Optymyze. “Our continued success is the direct result of our industry-leading technology, best practice processes and expertise that enable our clients to drive positive business outcomes. We are honored that the judges of the Best in Biz Awards have recognized our robust growth and strong results and honored to receive this award in Fastest-Growing Company of the Year category.”
The sixth annual Best in Biz Awards program in North America received more than 600 entries, from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2016 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, App of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2016 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 50 judges from widely known newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, TV outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to numerous judges returning from the 2011-2015 judging panels, this year’s panel included several worthy additions to the high-profile group.

“If companies are going to stand out from the crowd and remain competitive in future years, innovation is key. The market is tough and there is no guarantee that today’s dominant players will remain so — unless time and effort are concentrated on research and development,” said Charlie Osborne, ZDNet, one of Best in Biz Awards’ judges this year. “This year’s entries in Best in Biz Awards highlighted not only innovative business practices but the emergence of next-generation technologies which will keep companies current and relevant.”
