October 3, 2018
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 2, 2018 –FISION Corporation (OTCQB: FSSN), a leading sales enablement platform, has been named the #1 software company in Minnesota by Twin Cities Business (TBC) magazine. FISION is the category winner in the publlication’s 2018 Best of Business Reader’s Choice Awards.
According to Adam Platt, executive editor at Twin Cities Business magazine: “Sales and marketing co-workers often don’t speak the same language or take advantage of each other’s capabilities. FISION Corp. in Minneapolis seeks to simplify matters and bring sales and marketing together with cloud-based software for managing and tailoring businesses’ collateral and communications.”
Founded in 2011, FISION now has more than 65,000 users across 21 countries who benefit from more effective collaborations between these two essential disciplines. Some of the company’s Fortune 500 customer base is located in Minnapolis. Last year, the company acquired Minneapolis-based Volerro Corp., adding workgroup content creation capabilities to its platform. In August, it announced plans to merge with Continuity Logic, a leading provider of cloud-based business continuity and risk management solutions.
FISION offers digital asset management, marketing automation, and other sales tools for large companies in health care, hospitality, financial, insurance, software, and technology. It empowers distributed sales teams and local marketers to quickly and easily customize and distribute timely, relevant, multi-channel campaigns without sacrificing brand or legal compliance.
“Workplace decisions have consequences,” noted Platt in the article announcing thewinners.”Deploying your company’s resources requires due diligence—but you can’t rely on online comments (as you do when picking a restaurant) nor your competitor’s opinions. That’s where Best of Business comes in.”
For this year’s winner’s, TCB surveyed its more than 70,000 month readers, asking top executives and decision-makers, which comprise three-quarters of its readership, for vendor recommendations in common business service categories. The results included businesses big and small, “primed to serve companies of all sizes and budgets.”

We’re very proud of this award and the recongization it brings, as it reflects our success in this endeavor with the business owners and decision makers who know us the best.”
