Was the Next Big Deal Discovered at SXSW 2013?

As the buzz of SXSW 2013 begins to fade (and as new plans for 2014 are already in the works), we wanted to pay homage to the thousands of developers who flock to SXSW Interactive each year to learn, network, showcase their latest and greatest, and ultimately land a partnership or deal to move their projects or passions into the next stages.  Everyone wants to be the next FourSquare success story.

If you were at SXSWi this year and networking on the streets of Austin, what startups did you see making a solid push this year? With the gathering of such great and creative minds at SXSWi, there is never a shortage of ingenuity when it comes to how startups create buzz for themselves among attendees and most importantly, investors and partners. SXSW Interactive also took notice as this year’s awards announcing 10,000 ft as the winner in the optimizing business category.  It’s an online collaborative management tool that allows you to control your entire team’s projects and schedules with one intuitive system.  Watch the video below to see the bigger picture:

Fisker Automotive also created an extensive interactive website experience by creating a new navigation to see every detail of their new vehicles.

Stop by http://onward.fiskerautomotive.com/en-us/karma/ to have a look for yourself.

Mobile Bay created a very useful site for event planners, where you can easily see photos of everything you could want in Mobile Bay and even print out PDFs with more information.

Visit it at http://mobilebay.org/activity_finder

Nissan even used Microsoft’s Kinect technology to create a virtual reality experience of a new car that they were showing off at an auto show.

But the most innovative entry on the list had to be the VIP Fridge Magnet by Red Tomato Pizza.  They took the whole Pizza delivery ordering process and shrunk it into a button you stick to your fridge.  When you push their magnet, it sends your favorite pizza order automatically to Red Tomato Pizza, and sends you a confirmation text.  Amazing concept and great use of technology.  The only problem is that Red Tomato Pizza is only available in Dubai……for now.

Check out the video at http://204.42.145.61/Awards/2012/VIPFridgeMagnet/.

Even though 10,000ft. took the prize, we are still willing to bet that there were some big deals made at SXSW with the other entries.  Good luck to all the other applicants in the SXSW Interactive Awards in the future.  Keep pushing the envelope of using technology to make big deals happen!

Adobe EchoSign Customer Snapshot: Carahsoft Technology

At Adobe EchoSign, we’re always looking to help streamline business processes by adding our eSignature solution. And whenever we can help a government agency do that, it helps everyone. So when government IT solutions provider Carahsoft Technology announced the addition of Adobe EchoSign to its General Services Administration Schedule, we were pleased to be part of a solution that will provide government agencies and citizens with a simple, secure and compliant option for sending, tracking, and signing documents.

Adobe EchoSign helps agencies accelerate digital document processing, improve tracking and centralize the management of signed agreements by reducing the time and costs of having documents signed with traditional methods, such as fax, overnight envelopes or in-person signings.

In announcing the news, Carahsoft’s Cortney Steiner, vice president of the Adobe Government Solutions team said, “Government agencies are working hard to simplify and speed interaction with their constituents. That’s why we’re so excited to add the Adobe EchoSign solution to our GSA schedule. It provides agencies with a fast and secure way for businesses and citizens to sign, track or file documents and contracts as they interact with the government, while enabling agencies to leverage their investments in Adobe software they have already purchased without additional IT implementation or maintenance.”

Thanks, Cortney. We’re excited to be part of the solution.

You can get the big picture of how Adobe EchoSign is helping customers here. And to get your business on the fast track, check out this test drive.
