At SnapRetail, we want to make life easy for local retailers. We're the only ready-to-use marketing solution catering exclusively to retailers and their needs. We want them to have more - more time, more traffic and more sales. That's why we've developed a system that helps them easily engage and sell to customers using email and social media. Thousands of retailers across the U.S. use SnapRetail to take their marketing to the next level.
SnapRetail was founded in 2010 when CEO Ted Teele and a team of experienced retail industry and technology professionals saw the need for retailers to compete better with big box stores online. Time? Money? Easy-to-use technology? We wanted them to have it all. Since SnapRetail's humble beginning, we've grown our product to be far more than just an email marketing system. Not only do we provide retailers with the tools to make their marketing successful, but we do most of the work for them, providing them with ideas to boost sales and engage customers both online and off. All a retailer needs to do is add a little bit of their store's personality.
Culture is big at SnapRetail. With a smart and diverse team of marketers, salespeople, engineers and others, SnapRetail promotes an environment of mutual respect to encourage creative ideas. And we're proud to say that the great relationships we build in the office reflect in our relationships with customers. Our customer service team is the best in the industry, with each retailer assigned to a dedicated marketing consultant to help with all of their needs.
As a result, in 2011 we were recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of America's 100 Brilliant Companies and had the honor of being Social Media Examiner's #3 Small Business Facebook page. We received the ICON Award for Retail Innovative Technology in 2011 and were named one of the Top Workplaces in Pittsburgh by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2012. We were recognized as one of the Top 50 Tech Companies in Pittsburgh in both 2011 and 2012.
While we love being recognized for our work, our true satisfaction comes from knowing we're saving retailers time and money marketing their store online. With so many options for web-based marketing systems, we're proud to say we're the only one focused specifically on retail.
