Unified Inbox (UIB) Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in Unified Communications and Collaboration Technologies
Vendors selected for the Cool Vendor report are innovative, impactful, and intriguing
Singapore (September 19, 2018) — Unified Inbox Pte. Ltd. (UIB), a leading provider of intelligent IoT messaging technology, today announced it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the “Cool Vendors in Unified Communications and Collaboration Technologies” [i] report by Gartner, Inc.
According to Gartner [ii], “a ‘Cool Vendor’ is a small company offering a technology or service that is:
- Innovative — enables users to do things they couldn't do before
- Impactful — has or will have a business impact, not just technology for its own sake
- Intriguing — has caught Gartner's interest during the past six months”
Toby Ruckert, UIB’s CEO, said, “We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner to be confirmation of our mission to make human to machine communications simple. Our UnificationEngine® intelligent IoT messaging solves the problem of how to talk to cloud-connected software, services, chatbots, and devices. When people add our UnificationEngine-powered SmartContact® to their smartphone’s address book, they can talk to any connected ‘thing’ or service on over 20 of the world’s most popular communications platforms, including email, SMS, smart speakers, social media messaging and chat apps — such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, and many more.”
Ken Herron, UIB’s CMO, added, “With a SmartContact in your smartphone’s address book, you can talk via natural language voice and instant messaging to any device on any channel in any language with or without using the device’s native mobile app or a virtual assistant. Our customers wow us daily with how they use UIB’s SmartContact in their smart home, hotel, school, museum, enterprise, city, and other solutions that reduce costs, increase revenues, and delight their customers.”
According to Daryl Plummer [ii], Vice President and Gartner Fellow, "Being named one of Gartner's 2018 Cool Vendors means that one must stand out from the crowd. But it also means doing something worth doing. Being a Cool Vendor in 2018 is all about solving difficult problems in segments including banking and investment services, supply chain execution, and IoT security."
