FORT WAYNE, IN February 6, 2015 – Squaremouth, America’s fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, has been named a nominee in TechPoint’s 16th Annual Mira Awards for their software development office in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The Mira Awards recognize the best in technology in Indiana. Nominees were chosen by more than 40 subject matter experts. This is Squaremouth’s first nomination in both the Tech Services and Emerging Tech Company of the Year categories.
“We are proud to be part of the budding technology community in Indiana, and are honored to have been recognized by TechPoint among so many other innovative companies,” said Squaremouth co-founder and CIO, Matt Outten.
In 2014, Squaremouth’s development team worked on 17 open source projects, made over 2,200 software changes, launched two online help centers, and supported a high profile marketing campaign.
“Our development team is made up of extremely skilled and motivated individuals,” adds Squaremouth co-founder and CEO, Chris Harvey. “They are able to think two steps ahead of our industry, building and maintaining a website that is able to sustain our growing customer base.”
The development team’s improvements to squaremouth.com have supported the company’s consistent growth of at least 20% year-over-year. In 2014, the website saw over 800,000 visitors, selling over $14 million in premium.
This nomination is the most recent in a line of national recognition Squaremouth has received. In 2014, Squaremouth was awarded with a Silver Stevie Award for Customer Service Team of the Year by the American Business Awards, and was named on the INC 5000 Fastest-Growing Privately Held U.S. Companies for the second consecutive year.
The winners in each category of the Mira Awards will be announced during a black-tie awards banquet in Indianapolis in May 2015. A full list of finalists can be found here: https://techpoint.org/2015/05/techpoint-honors-best-tech-indiana-2015-mira-awards/.
