Santa Barbara, CA, United States, 2009/03/02 - Cogi was awarded 'Best In Show' at Twiistup 5. Cogi is an audio recording and transcription service that lets busy consumers capture important phone and in-person conversations, then review them online like email, and share them with others.
Cogi is proud to announce it was awarded ‘Best In Show’ last Thursday at Twiistup 5, the premier Los Angeles technology and media event. This highly sought-after award recognizes Cogi as the top technology start-up company to watch in Southern California.
A panel of nine judges, including technology experts and bloggers, previously selected Cogi from a pool of more than 100 nominees. After an action-packed evening of exhibiting and demonstrating Cogi to over 1,000 attendees, these judges then selected Cogi as the top technology start-up.
Cogi is an audio recording and transcription service that lets busy consumers and professionals forget about note-taking and become more active in their conversations. The service provides accurate, timely and secure audio recordings and text transcripts of conversations, conducted on the phone or in person.
“All of us here at Cogi are ecstatic to have been chosen as ‘Best In Show.’ It was an honor to be given the opportunity to show off our service at the event,” said Palmer Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, Cogi. “The feedback we received from event attendees reinforced what we already know. People typically rely on memory and scraps of paper to keep track on their conversations, which leads to lost information. …Cogi is an easy-to-use, comprehensive solution to this universal problem.”
