The Global Telecoms Awards (The GLOTEL): Vlocity won the coveted 2017 GLOTEL Award for BSS Transformation Excellence for its extraordinary work partnering with TELUS Business Solutions. Vlocity’s cutting-edge software transforms the way communication service providers (CSPs) interact with customers.

Forbes 2017 Cloud 100: Vlocity is proud to have been named to the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list—the definitive collection of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in collaboration with Bessemer Venture Partners. As part of the rigorous selection process for the Cloud 100, hundreds of submissions from the top cloud companies throughout the world were meticulously evaluated through a process that involved four factors: estimated valuation (30 percent), operating metrics (20 percent), people and culture (15 percent) and market leadership (35 percent.) The panel of judges, comprised of a majority of public cloud company CEOs, selected, scored and ranked the winners. Vlocity is honored to be selected by Forbes and ranked as a leader in cloud computing.
Forbes “Next Billion-Dollar Company”: Vlocity was named a “Forbes Next Billion-Dollar Company” – one of the companies most likely to hit the billion-dollar mark soon, as designated by Forbes and TrueBridge Capital Partners. Every year for the past three, Forbes has looked for 25 young U.S. companies with a strong shot at reaching a valuation of $1 billion or more. To be considered, firms had to provide TrueBridge their revenue numbers, their most recent valuations, a list of investors, data about their customers and an outline of their business model and growth trajectory. TrueBridge examined nearly 100 companies nominated by 195 venture capital firms, then passed a list of 40 to the Entrepreneurs team at Forbes. Forbes did further analysis, researching companies’ track records, evaluating business plans and talking to founders, investors, customers and competitors.
First Place: Dreamforce Lightning App Pitch Contest: At Dreamforce 2017, Vlocity won First Place: Lightning App Pitch – and claimed the top distinction out of the Salesforce partners that participated. Partners were given three minutes to pitch their app live to a distinguished panel of voting judges and demonstrate not only the value of their new app, but how it leverages the cutting-edge advantages of the Lightning environment. Vlocity was awarded first place by the Salesforce Lightning team.
Lightning Bolt Trailblazer Award (the BOLTY): Vlocity won one of the inaugural BOLTY awards from Salesforce. Salesforce created the Lightning Bolt Trailblazer Awards—known as “the BOLTYs”—as a way to honor industry-wide innovation on its new Lightning Framework. By highlighting Trailblazer achievements in several different categories, Salesforce is able to recognize the contributions of partners and their customers that have leveraged the Lightning Framework to create new capabilities and improve user experiences. Vlocity is at the forefront of Lightning innovation within the Salesforce ecosystem, and was recognized for its innovation in Lightning Communities and Lightning Components.
BIG Awards for Business (with TELUS): This diverse industry awards program offers companies, their products, people and tactics a chance to be globally recognized by panels of business veterans and leaders. The 2017 “BIG Awards for Business” honors companies of various sizes across all major verticals. Vlocity is delighted to be awarded the Case Study of the Year with TELUS for its groundbreaking work with the Canadian telco in transforming customer service, increasing agent productivity and improving quote-to-order accuracy. Vlocity’s case study with TELUS clearly articulates the premise, the challenge and the solution that its cloud-based applications were able to provide.
