Recognized for the fifth year in a row as a leading software company
NEW YORK, NY — September 16, 2020 – Sprinklr, the Customer Experience Management (CXM) platform for modern enterprises, today announced that it has been named to the Forbes 2020 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. Sprinklr is recognized for the fifth consecutive year on the Forbes Cloud 100 list, based on an evaluation process that ranks companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%).
As the world moves even more online due to the coronavirus pandemic, companies must adopt cloud technologies that create digital-first experiences. Sprinklr was built from the ground up to enable a brand’s digital transformation. Its platform provides every customer-facing team with the modern capabilities they need to serve connected customers, and enables the entire front office to work together to deliver a more unified customer experience.
Sprinklr’s recognition on the 2020 Forbes Cloud 100 list follows a number of unprecedented milestones for the company over the past 12 months:
Raised $200 million at a $2.7 billion valuation, and secured an additional $150 million in convertible securities.
Released 1,500+ new features across its five products including: Sprinklr Live Chat to enable real-time conversations on a brand’s website and mobile apps, new AI-powered capabilities like Smart Responses for care agents, and Sprinklr Sandbox to provide an isolated environment to test, train, and troubleshoot.
Named the only leader in The Forrester Wave™: Social Suites, Q4 2019, making Sprinklr a leader in all five Forrester social Wave reports. Sprinklr has also been named a leader by Frost & Sullivan (Customer Value Leadership Award), Forbes (Cloud 100), Gartner (2020 Customers’ Choice), G2 Crowd (Leader, Summer 2020), TrustRadius (Top Rated 2020), and Adweek (Readers’ Choice for Best of Tech Award 2020).
“For five years now, we have ranked the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. “With so many businesses growing fast in the cloud, from data infrastructure to marketing, it’s harder than ever to make the Cloud 100 list – but with more elite company if you do. Congratulations to each of the 2020 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars honorees poised to join their ranks!”
“As customers increasingly connect to brands on digital channels, cloud-based Customer Experience Management technology is now critical for success,” said Ragy Thomas, CEO & Founder, Sprinklr. “Our vision has always been to build a software platform that breaks down silos and helps brands make customers happier. We’re humbled to be recognized for this vision for the fifth year in a row, and are grateful to every employee, customer and partner for helping us define the customer experience management market.”
