NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tracx has been named a gold winner for Best New Version of the Year in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Tracx has launched several industry-first capabilities that provide businesses with actionable insights that drive results, including Sentity, Visual Listening and Smart Recommendations. Tracx's Sentity goes beyond traditional sentiment analysis, which assigns a single sentiment score per post. Instead, Sentity provides scores for each entity within the entire post, which allows users to dig deeper into posts expressing mixed sentiment, as they can clearly see exactly what is being referenced as positive and what is referred to negatively. Tracx also provides a visual listening solution that delivers integrated photo and text analytics together in one unified social enterprise platform. These two innovations, along with Tracx's Smart Recommendation's Engine, continue to deliver deeper, more actionable consumer insights and smarter social engagements throughout the customer journey.
The fifth annual Best in Biz Awards program in North America boasted the highest number of submissions to date. More than 600 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.
"What impressed me about this year's entries was their depth, variety and energy," said Dale Dauten, having served on every judging panel during the past five years of Best in Biz Awards. "Studying these entries, you feel the rush of relentless creativity. Hang on for the ride – the engine of innovation is racing ahead."
"We are honored to have been recognized as a gold winner of Best New Version of the Year," said Amy Inlow, CMO at Tracx. "We continue to work tirelessly in order to provide the most powerful social business cloud available, and this award represents the culmination of those efforts."
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2015 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 46 judges from highly recognized newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to the numerous judges returning from previous panels from years 2011 – 2014, this year's judging panel included several worthy additions to the high-profile group.
