LogMyCalls Wins Grand Prize in Global Start-Up Challenge

Press Release

January 28, 2013

LogMyCalls, a service of ContactPoint, was selected as Grand Prize winner of the 2012 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Global Start-Up Challenge. LogMyCalls was selected because of its next generation call tracking functionality and conversation analytics. AWS judging panels—consisting of industry experts, Amazon executives, and VCs—reviewed 2500 applicants from 85 countries.

The Grand Prize announcement was made on January 24th at the AWS Global Start-Up Challenge Finale Celebration in San Francisco.

The field began with 2500 applicants. It was winnowed to 24 semi-finalists and eventually 12 finalists. Each applicant was carefully screened by investors, judges, and industry experts. All applicants submitted detailed product information, financial information, marketing strategy, sales plans, and other company information. The competition culminated in three days of exhaustive discussions, pitches and meetings in San Francisco. It was only after this comprehensive process that LogMyCalls was chosen as Grand Prize Winner.

LogMyCalls is a SaaS that uses complex speech recognition technology and proprietary algorithms to track marketing ROI, gather call analytics data, and automate marketing and CRM actions.

"We are elated to be a Grand Prize Winner. This award punctuates how the market values what LogMyCalls delivers – cloud-based analytics of phone conversations so businesses can optimize their marketing, automate marketing, and make more money call," Jason Wells, CEO of ContactPoint, maker of LogMyCalls said. "Our platform and our capabilities are built on AWS and they are central to our expansion strategy as we grow and require seamless scalability. It's an honor to be selected out of 2500 companies from 83 countries and we’re excited to work with AWS for the long-term.”
