Revinate, the leading provider of social media and online reputation management solutions for the hospitality industry, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMedia Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Revinate was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Revinate and the OnMedia Top 100 Companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnMedia NYC event on February 22st, 2012, at the Time Warner Center.
This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on which forces are disrupting user behavior and creating new opportunities in the marketing, branding, advertising, and public relations industries.
“The make-up of OnMedia 100 represents forward-thinking media companies in a year charged with disruptive change. The emergence of Web-fueled TV and the explosive growth of smartphones and tablets are challenging the media world to transform itself into a global, consumer-focused industry. Coupled with the socialization of everything, this year’s digital media and entertainment startups are boldly charging into future, ready to reinvent the establishment with new, invigoration products and services,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “Web analytics are now embracing a social world, providing marketing and advertising companies with the targeted data that delivers on the promise of reaching consumers with meaningful, actionable messages.”
The OnMedia 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

“I am incredibly proud that AlwaysOn has selected Revinate as an OnMedia Top 100 Winner,” says Jay Ashton, Co-Founder and CEO of Revinate. “In the two years that we have been selling our software service into the hospitality vertical, we have seen incredible progress in the way that hotels and restaurants are adapting to social media and innovative new technology. As a result, they are able to reach customers and provide better service than was ever possible before. We look forward to helping our customers continue to drive sales and raise the bar when it comes to service and loyalty,” Ashton added.
With user generated content and reviews increasing in both number and importance, hotel and restaurant owners and operators have a simple choice: either ignore the cacophony of social media and hope for the best or proactively track and manage what is being said online in a way that deepens customer relationships, strengthens brands and boosts revenue.
