Dacuda named as a Gartner Cool Vendor

07.05.2013 10:01

The prominent analyst firm Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors each year in key technology areas, and publishes research reports on these innovative vendors and their products and services. Together with only five other companies, Dacuda has made it into the Cool Vendor report for Consumer Devices 2013.

Gartner highlights Dacuda because its SLAM Scan technology brings a new way of scanning to the consumer. Furthermore Dacuda’s lately launched technologies Rapid Scan and Rapid Input enable new content-input mechanisms for mobile devices alongside speech and typing.

“To be selected as Cool Vendor by Gartner is a big honor for Dacuda,” said Peter Weigand, CEO of Dacuda AG. “The recognition from Gartner is a great motivation to continue developing new products that increase the consumer’s productivity and bring value to our partners.”

Dacuda is the second Swiss start-up recognised by Gartner. Last week we reported about kooaba. Kooaba is one of Gartner’s cool vendors in consumer mobile applications.

Gartner, a leading analyst firm, headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.A., has 5,300 associates, including 1,280 research analysts and consultants. The company has clients in 12,400 distinct organizations in 85 countries.
