April 17, 2013 — Stoughton, MA — Denis Pombriant, founder and managing principal of Beagle Research Group, LLC, today announced the winners of the company’s 2013 WizKids Award which is given to outstanding emerging companies in the front office and CRM market.  Award winners include Apttus, Badgeville, HubSpot, NextPrinciples, Skyword and Totango.

“This year’s winners span multiple front office categories from social media to analytics and from gamification to adding new twists to old processes like CPQ (configure, price, quote),” Pombriant said.  Each year the analyst firm reviews hundreds of companies and profiles outstanding firms whose offerings are disruptive and provide significant improvement over conventional business processes as well as some that introduce completely new ideas.  It then collects its profiles in a report and announces these awards.

“We were impressed with the variety represented by this year’s winners,” Pombriant said.  “With all the attention given to social media in the front office, it has been gratifying to see so many companies innovating in other equally important areas,” he concluded.

The full report is available as a free download at and it contains Website addresses and contact information for all winners.
