Appcast Named HR Software Category Winner in Best in Biz Awards 2017


LEBANON, N.H., Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Appcast, the leading developer of programmatic job advertising technology, has been named a Bronze winner in Enterprise Product of the Year – HR Software category by the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

Launched in 2014, Appcast created the new category of programmatic job advertising technology, transforming the sourcing and recruiting process. With its namesake product for employers, Appcast Exchange, Appcast revolutionized the way companies promote job openings online, helping reach more than 120 million job seekers across over 10,000 job sites. In addition to Appcast Exchange, its solution suite includes Clickcast, designed to improve the ROI of performance job ad spend; Brand, which helps attract candidates who have previously engaged with a company career site, applicant tracking system or job board; and Inventory, a supply-side platform that allows job sites to optimize performance advertising inventory.

Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was particularly hotly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.

Appcast CEO Chris Forman said, “Appcast is powering how companies source talent by powering the recruitment marketing needs of employers, agencies and job sites. Being recognized by the industry press and analysts at the Best in Biz Awards is a terrific honor. It rounds out a very exciting year for our team during which we’ve enhanced our product offerings, expanded our global footprint and welcomed strategic hires.”

Since 2011, winners of Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels composed of prominent editors and reporters from some of the most respected newspapers, TV outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panels, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners. The 2017 judging panel included: Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Investment Advisor Magazine, Laptop, MediaPost, Pittsburgh Business Times, Security Products Magazine, Wired, WLRN and Yahoo Tech.
