The company was chosen due to its superior product development, innovative mobile technology and employee talent pool.

We are always aspiring to create the best products and experiences in the industry. Our technology, which is designed and created in Ireland, powers many of the largest recognition programs in the world by helping our customers unify their culture and connect employees on a global scale.
