Cortera, a provider of comprehensive business-to-business payment and B2B purchase behavior data and insights for U.S. companies, was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award for Business Intelligence Solution, new version, in the seventh annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service last night.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world's top sales, contact center, and customer service awards. The awards were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, February 25, at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. More than 300 nominated customer service and sales executives from the United States and other countries attended.

"From our perspective, this was the most successful Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service yet," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder, Stevie Awards, "not just because of the increase in the number and variety of entries, but in the extraordinary quality of the entries. Judges have told me how impressed they were with the success stories they reviewed this year. All of this year's Stevie Award winners are truly deserving."

More than 1,100 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to this year's competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 120 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges while more than 100 members of eight specialized judging committees determined Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging this year.

"The evolution of the business intelligence industry demonstrates that demographics are no longer enough for sale and marketing teams to identify their best sales targets. Cortera Pulse (News - Alert) enables organizations to understand their ideal customers' behavior and easily find 'Look-Alikes' that have a high propensity to buy their products or services," said Jim Swift (News - Alert), president and CEO, Cortera. "Winning the Stevie Award for best Business Intelligence Solution for the new version of Cortera Pulse is a great honor for our team."
