The Bellevue, Washington based company was recognized for its innovation with Tecplot Chorus: visualization and simulation analytics software for engineers.
BELLEVUE, Wash., May 29, 2012 – Tecplot, Inc., a leader in delivering visualization and simulation analytics software for engineers and scientists, today announced it is a winner of the 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Americas Award, a prestigious honor of companies’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“We are honored to be recognized by Red Herring as one of the top 100 companies in the Americas,” said Rich Stillman, president and CEO of Tecplot. “Our new solution, Tecplot Chorus is a game changer. It is taking computational fluid dynamic (CFD) visualization to the next level. Chorus gives scientists and engineers the ability to integrate metadata and the underlying physics, so they can analyze the data separately and together, in a way that has not been possible until now.”
Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring 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.
“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 North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Tecplot embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Tecplot should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, including 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 sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Americas.
