Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA (January 22, 2019) — The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Alogent (@AlogentCorp) as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. Alogent is the market leader in providing some of the largest national and international banks and credit unions with end-to-end payment automation, enterprise information management, and digital banking solutions. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at The Summit 2019 on February 11-12, 2019, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The 2019 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry Williams, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2019 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The Summit 2019.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
Alogent is driven by a history of innovation and by its customers’ needs for continuous transformation. The company continues to expand both domestically and abroad, helping to build a strong culture of technology advancement both in the Atlanta-area and throughout the state.
“As a 30-year resident of Atlanta, it’s an honor to lead such an organization that continues to challenge the ‘status quo’ in everything it does. Thank you for recognizing our achievements and our leadership in the market,” said Dede Wakefield, Alogent’s CEO. “Our goal is to digitize and automate the entire financial ecosystem, enabling Alogent to become the hub around which transaction data transforms into business intelligence.”
The event will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers, the Top 40 and Top 10 Innovative Georgia Companies competition, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, 30 breakout sessions on global trend, and a two-day exhibitor showcase.
Alogent is the market leader in providing banks and credit unions with deposit automation, item processing, enterprise information management, loan origination, and digital banking solutions.
