Portland, OR – May 9, 2022 – AskNicely, a leader in customer experience software for service businesses, is pleased to announce it has been named winner of the Disruptive Technology Award in the Oregon Technology Awards hosted by the Technology Association of Oregon. Recognized for its innovative Frontline Success Platform launched in 2021, AskNicely forges ahead as a challenger to conventional wisdom, empowering organizations worldwide to connect the dots between employee experience, customer experience and revenue growth.  

“We couldn’t be happier to win an award with ‘disruptive’ in the title,” says AskNicely Founder and CEO Aaron Ward. “The Disruptive Technology Award applauds excellence within Oregon’s vibrant technology community and encapsulates everything we strive continuously to achieve as a business. Our unique and first-of-its-kind Frontline Success Platform completely flips the current customer service model on its head, breathing new life into an otherwise backward and broken paradigm. The Frontline Success Platform includes a mobile application that delivers personalized coaching, recognition and relevant customer feedback to frontline employees in real-time, eliminating the need for overpaid boardroom executives to concoct yet another ineffective customer experience strategy.”

A well-established and 38-year-old event, the Oregon Technology Awards recognizes the state’s most noteworthy technology companies in four categories: Technology Company of the Year, Influential Technology Company Not Headquartered in Oregon, Most Disruptive Technology of the Year, and People’s Choice.

“Oregon’s technology community continues to thrive and mature, and the companies honored tonight are building the future of our state,” said Skip Newberry, TAO President and CEO. “It is an honor to celebrate the leaders making an impact and the companies elevating the state’s technology economy.” 

The 2022 Oregon Technology Awards Program was presented by JLL and UnitedHealthcare
