Gartner gives Shindig 2017 Cool Vendors in Social Collaboration nod

Every year, Gartner acknowledges the most innovative in category for social collaboration via their “Cool Vendors” award. We could not be more delighted to share with you that for 2017 Shindig is among the recipients of this special recognition. The Gartner report noted that Shindig’s unique video chat solution transformed “ the feeling of people attending a virtual online event that they are ‘all along together.’” and further that the platform delivered” a more compelling peer-to-peer experience where people can ‘mingle’ as they do in physical spaces.”

This is a big win for Shindig as Gartner is a world-renowned tech research firm, respected for their thought leadership and technology insights, and receiving this award further reinforces our transformational vision: to improve how people virtually collaborate, communicate, and connect.

Gartner uses an assessment framework they coined ACME to evaluate collaboration effectiveness of a technology. More specifically, this framework measures the Activity, Content, Motivation and Enabling technology to evaluate how context and motivation are addressed in the user’s experience of a platform. As result, Shindig is identified as “creating a cohesive user experience for people to participate in large-scale video events” and increasing “people’s comfort level to participate and contribute”. We tend to agree!
