I have the pleasure of hosting the Innotech Beta Summit again for 2010, and I have a select group of the freshest technology products that Austin has to offer. In prior years, we’ve featured companies such as OtherInBox (which has since gone on to raise $4M), Spredfast (which raised $1.6M), Game Salad (which raised $1M), Phurnace (profitably acquired by BMC). This next round of companies holds just as much promise. If you haven’t yet, you can register for Innotech here.

The combination of agent and server applications provides a full customer life-cycle, direct communications channel spanning lead creation/generation, customer activation, and customer retention/loyalty. The strategy is to develop captivating and compelling applications that engage mobile consumers at each step in their progression through the customer and/or sales funnel.
