Botify was chosen as the SaaS Growth leader for sales success, market expansion, and product innovation in performance-driven organic search.
“The growth and impact of SaaS technology within the French technology sector is undeniable,” said Benoit Gourdon, EMEA President of Botify who attended the award ceremony along with Thomas Grange, Botify’s co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer. “We are delighted to receive this award, which is not only a testament to the quality of our technology, but also to the hard work done by the Botify teams and the value we provide to brands and enterprises.”
Investment in SEO is accelerating – due in part to the pandemic and a rapid rise in e-commerce. In fact, the market is estimated to be worth $47.5 billion and is on track to grow 20% by 2025. “Fortunately for us, the demand for search technology is growing. For companies seeking to maximize online visibility and sales, organic search is becoming a higher priority and our solution is proving to be an invaluable asset for them,” Gourdon continued.
Now in its 11th year, the Panorama Top 250 showcases the growth of the top 250 companies playing a key role in the digital transformation of France. With an estimated 18 billion euros in turnover, French software companies represent one of the France’s fastest growing sectors while remaining dynamic, innovative, and resilient.
