ATLANTA, GA – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced BrightWhistle as one of the Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.

The coveted Top 10 Innovative Technology Company Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally. Each Top 10 company will present its innovation on-stage during the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

“BrightWhistle’s solution is not only changing the healthcare industry, but it is also putting Georgia on the map as a state where technology innovation can thrive,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “We applaud each of these companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community and look forward to showcasing them at our annual Georgia Technology Summit.”

“The competition for Top 10 recognition was particularly fierce this year,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “The Top 10 demonstrates the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community. We are pleased to recognize this group of companies and believe that the community will be just as impressed as we are by their innovation and impact on Georgia’s technology industry.”

“We are honored to be recognized by TAG as a Top 10 Innovative Technology Company,” said BrightWhistle CEO Greg Foster. “Georgia is home to a great wealth of expertise in healthcare technology, marketing automation and digital media.
