Netviewer Receives Frost & Sullivan Award for Business Development Strategy Leadership

Netviewer, Europe’s leading provider of web collaboration solutions, has received one of the coveted Frost & Sullivan Awards. The award in the ‘Business Development Strategy Leadership 2007’ category recognises Netviewer as an organisation which has distinguished itself in its sector by demonstrating exceptional business development, excelling in the creation of products and services that are perfectly tailored to the needs of its target groups.

The accolade was awarded to Netviewer for its superior market growth skills through a combination of vision, technology and successful marketing.
As part of the evaluation, Frost & Sullivan commended Netviewer for its state of the art web collaboration software. Participants simply click on a web link to run a small executable file and are placed immediately into a Netviewer web conferencing session. No software installation or administration rights are required. This ease of use has allowed Netviewer to be adopted by a wide range of companies to reduce the time and costs associated with business travel, while simultaneously speeding up decision-making processes, and reducing carbon footprint.

Frost & Sullivan also highlighted Netviewer’s locally focussed approach to expansion. With local offices, localised expertise and targeted campaigns the company is determined to meet local customer needs and adjust to market conditions as well as traditions.

“We are very proud that our efforts and energies in developing a highly innovative and successful business have been recognised with this prestigious award” said Dr. Andreas Schweinbenz, founder and managing director of Netviewer. “We are committed to continuing our tradition of technology innovation to support the growing need for companies to work together effectively while overcoming the constraints of time and geography.” With the next version of the web conferencing software, Netviewer will expand its capabilities by using Web2.0 technologies to create even greater functionality and support for its customers.

Dominic Dodd, Senior Industry Analyst and Program Manager with Frost & Sullivan, commented: “Netviewer has demonstrated how companies of any size can embrace web collaboration software to enhance business processes and improve productivity. The successful development and execution of an international business development strategy with a local focus has enabled Netviewer to rapidly establish its position and reputation in the European web collaboration software and services markets against strong competition from established players such as Microsoft or Webex.”

Frost & Sullivan predicts a compound annual growth rate of 30.5% for the European web conferencing software and services market between 2006 and 2013.
