XANT Wins Utah Best of State 2011

Provo, Utah—May 10, 2011—XANT, the leading provider of sales intelligence and productivity solutions for inside sales professionals, announced today that the company has been recognized as the 2011 Utah Best of State® in the Science & Technology: Telecommunications category. The Best of State® awards are given annually to Utah companies and individuals who demonstrate high levels of achievement, with categories ranging from business, education, and science, to culinary arts and sports. Winners are judged on innovation and excellence in their fields, and on their impact and contributions to the community. XANT was previously honored as a Best of State® winner in 2009. “We’re thrilled to be selected once again as a Utah Best of State for 2011,” states David Elkington, CEO of XANT. “Utah’s reputation as a center for innovation and world-class business continues to grow, and the Best of State awards highlight that reality. These are not just some of the best companies and people in Utah, but in the nation, and we’re honored to be included among them.” XANT was the first to integrate a suite of hosted telephony tools into a Web-based lead management CRM. The company’s signature dialer products, including the PowerDialer, Inbound ResponsePop, and PowerDialer for Salesforce, have been nationally recognized as being among the best in their class. XANT’s landmark 2007 Lead Response Management Study has been downloaded over 60,000 times, and the results of the research done in conjunction with Dr. James Oldroyd were featured in the March 2011 issue of the Harvard Business Review. The study is widely regarded as being a pioneer force in creating the Lead Response Management industry. XANT President Ken Krogue notes that the company’s successes have been rewarding, but also come with an increasing responsibility to be “good neighbors” and business citizens. “One of the criteria of Best of State winners is to demonstrate a positive impact in the community, not just the market,” says Ken. “We look forward to continuing to produce world-class products and services, and finding new opportunities along the Wasatch Front for our community outreach programs for years to come.”
