Everyone Counts Wins 2012 Red Herring 100 Global Award

Prestigious recognition honors the top innovative technology companies


San Diego, CAEveryone Counts, Inc., the leading global provider of state-of-the-art Software as a Service (SaaS) election administration and voting systems, has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Global Top 100 award. This prestigious award list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs and is given in recognition of leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia. Red Herring's editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"In a year, and indeed in the same month, when long-lines and lost ballots blighted U.S. elections and President Obama vowed in his victory speech on election night that we 'need to fix that', it is an exciting honor to receive recognition that Everyone Counts is doing just that. Growing adoption of our innovative election systems mean it doesn't have to be that way any longer", said Lori J. Steele, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Everyone Counts, Inc. Lori added, "85 counties across the US and countries from Bosnia to Australia are experiencing more accessible, streamlined, and accurate elections by adopting our Software as a Service technology. It is a great honor to receive this award from such a prestigious organization as Red Herring. It is further evidence that antiquated election systems have had their day. The world is moving on. We are excited to be leading this transformation."

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Everyone Counts embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Everyone Counts should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" to make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
