Two of the four Danish startup companies of 2013 have transformed business by using Kapow Software to pioneer new Big Data integrations



Palo Alto, CA – April 2, 2013 Kapow Software, a leading Big Data solution provider, today announced that two of its customers, Trustpilot and Click A Taxi, have been recognized as winners of The Next Web’s 2013 Danish Startup Awards. The Next Web (www.TheNextWeb.com) is a leading source for technology news, business and culture with a worldly perspective that reaches more than six million monthly visitors around the world.

“Kapow Software’s Big Data integration platform is helping customers disrupt industries, invent new revenue models and accelerate exponential business growth,” says John Yapaola, CEO, Kapow Software. “Customers like Trustpilot and Click A Taxi use our technology to grow faster and outpace the competition. We’re proud to help them drive award-winning innovation.”

Trustpilot, a leading consumer reviews platform, was honored with the 2013 Startup of the Year award in Denmark. Founded by a passionate team of international entrepreneurs, the company proactively collects reviews and gets real insights straight from customers. It helps deliver top-notch customer experiences via its community driven review platform.

“At Trustpilot, our mission is to ensure that consumers can make informed online purchasing decisions by using our independent reviews community,” said Jan Vels Jensen, CMO of Trustpilot. “Kapow Software enables us to have deeper insight into the e-commerce markets in our global territories and allows us to better understand what our customers want, now and in the future. Using Kapow has significantly enhanced our community offering.”

Click A Taxi, this year’s winner for Best E-commerce Platform, uses Kapow Software to translate users’ location into an address that’s dispatched to a local taxi company. Customers can get a taxi no matter where they’re located without even knowing the name of the local taxi company. Kapow Software’s ability to perform high-volume integrations across numerous partner systems such as taxi companies, restaurants, hotels, flight bookings has enabled Click A Taxi to rapidly expand its offering to more than 50 countries and 5,000 cities in just 18 months.

"Without Kapow technology, we couldn't have expanded into this many cities so fast. Our average partner integration now takes less than two days to complete,” says Søren Halskov Nissen, CEO of Click A Taxi. “Kapow’s powerful Big Data integration platform has helped us surpass more than 100,000 bookings a month and has grown our business much more quickly. It is also a much smoother, stress-free process using Kapow.”
