MOBI, the industry-leading mobility management cloud software platform provider, received the Tech Company of the Year Award during TechPoint’s 18th annual Mira Awards honoring the best of tech in Indiana.
In just seven years, MOBI grew from a fast-growing startup to the Gartner Magic Quadrant-recognized, industry-leading mobility management cloud software platform provider. MOBI enables enterprises to centralize, comprehend, and control their entire device ecosystems, which saves companies money and satisfies all global enterprise needs.
In 2016, the company hired 115 people, growing to more than 300 employees worldwide total, and added 34 new customers to its already impressive roster, including Symantec (11,000 employees), American Express (56,000 employees), and ABB Group (140,000 employees). With these new accounts came international expansion to more than 30 countries.
Last year’s Company Culture of the Year Mira Award winner, MOBI continued to win awards for its unique approaches to doing business, including being ranked among CRN’s 20 Coolest Cloud Software Vendors of 2016.
The Mira Awards judges believe MOBI’s software-first enterprise solutions set them apart from everyone else because the industry is focused on services while MOBI builds the tools that make reliance on services largely unnecessary.
MOBI launched new products in 2016 that continue to stand the traditional business telecommunications model on its head, solving problems and saving companies money, which is the key to MOBI’s 97 percent customer retention rate. From sustainable code pushes to rapid feature deployment, MOBI applies its substantial tech talent to mitigate risk in a business category that is known to overwhelm those who can’t stay ahead of tech disruptions.
TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s tech ecosystem, honored the successes and innovation of Indiana companies, entrepreneurs, educators, and other leaders at The Westin Indianapolis during the 18th annual Mira Awards gala presented by Angie’s List, Genesys, and Salesforce.
A total of 15 award winners and three honorable mentions were chosen from the 90 outstanding companies, organizations, and individuals who were selected as nominees this year out of the 180 applications received highlighting achievements during the 2016 calendar year.
Fifty independent, volunteer judges spent more than 850 total hours reviewing and ranking applications, interviewing nominees, and selecting this year’s winners. Judges included company founders, CEOs and presidents; CTOs, CIOs and software developers; professors and chancellors from Indiana universities; design, human resources and sales professionals, and a variety of other subject matter experts.
The Mira Awards are named after the first of the brilliant variable stars to be discovered – the Mira Star. It is also the Latin root meaning “worthy of admiration, wonderful, marvelous.” The awards represent the best of tech in Indiana each year.
