Back to Blog Bullhorn’s Industry Accolades: Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation and CRM Magazine’s Rising Star Awards by Steve Vittorioso on August 30th, 2016 While awards season may be a few months away, we’ve recently earned some industry accolades that have been making our summer very exciting. For the second year in a row, we’ve been positioned on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation. Our 2016 positioning has been improved in the Niche Players quadrant after Gartner evaluated 19 different software vendors on 15 criteria measuring their completeness of vision and ability to execute. In June, we unveiled our award-winning CRM platform that provides radical transparency into customer relationships and business processes, automations and predictive analytics to streamline operations, and proactive intelligence to accelerate sales and improve service delivery. The Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation is the compilation of a multitude of research to identify the major players in sales force automation. An objective measure of the various technology providers in a single market, the Magic Quadrant is a vital resource for organizations looking to invest in technology that can meet their current and future needs. Our positioning in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation is the latest achievement in a string of industry recognition. In July, CRM Magazine named us a Rising Star in its 2016 Rising Star Awards. An editor’s choice honor launched 11 years ago, the Rising Star Awards highlight emerging CRM vendors that have introduced innovative technologies. In addition to receiving praise from CRM Magazine editors, industry pundits such as Brent Leary of CRM Essentials and Kate Leggett of Forrester commended our platform for its versatility and power to deliver incredible customer experiences. “[Bullhorn’s] evolution to a full-service CRM—powered in part by its email/SMS analytics technology—is very impressive,” said Leary to CRM Magazine.
