June 17, 2015 (Orlando, FL) — Red Herring recently announced ActivEngage, the most trusted brand in live chat, as a Top 100 North America award winner for 2015. ActivEngage was awarded this honor in San Diego at the Red Herring Top 100 North America Forum after giving a presentation on how its innovative chat technology is shaping the future of online retail.

Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market.

At the 2015 Forum, ActivEngage presented its recent developments and plans for its cutting-edge chat technology. Among the items covered, Ted Rubin, President and Co-Founder of ActivEngage, discussed the benefits of the company’s web-based chat software. This substantial piece of technology is utilized by ActivEngage’s Managed Chat Team to quickly address the needs of today’s online consumers. By providing personalized, real-time communication, ActivEngage’s Managed Chat Team humanizes the Internet and motivates consumers to make purchases.

By offering unique software features, coupled with the extensive training and professional performance of its Managed Chat Team, ActivEngage has created a business model that is unmatched by any other provider in the live chat industry.

“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe ActivEngage embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. ActivEngage should be proud of its accomplishment as the competition was very strong.”

Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.

ActivEngage continues to demonstrate it is a powerful force for changing how today’s consumers engage with businesses online. Based on this recent award from Red Herring, it’s evident that if ActivEngage isn’t on your “companies to watch” list yet, it should be.
