Bluedot Named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative List 2022
We’re honored to be named to Fast Company’s annual list of the world’s most innovative companies.
Companies innovate, and innovate they must to keep pace with changes in the market. No more evident is this than when the world stopped and turned upside down during the pandemic.
However, being innovative during this time was never going to be enough. There were no playbooks to follow. And companies of every size and industry carved narrow paths of adaptation amidst uncertain growth. 2021 continued to bring that stark truth into reality. Innovation has never been more critical - not only to business success, but to also have the ability to affect so many people.
Suddenly, to be innovative meant more. It wasn’t about launching new initiatives or killer features. It meant doing something more fundamental. In a time when people’s lives were affected in profound ways, we at Bluedot simply wanted to help.
That’s why it’s our honor to be named to Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies of 2022, and named most innovative in dining and hospitality for facilitating frictionless and contactless order, curbside and drive-thru pickup.
This year’s list honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. In addition to the World's 50 Most Innovative Companies, 528 organizations are recognized across 52 categories.
We owe our success as a team to more than just having the right toolkit and platform to help businesses. Our customers believed in us, made room for us, and, ultimately, allowed us to prove to them what we could accomplish together.
It’s not just about getting businesses moving again, but helping them thrive in the new normal. Restaurant and retail brands are now investing in transformative strategies that can deliver the next level of end-to-end speed, value and customer experience, from the moment an order is placed to the moment it’s picked up.
It’s satisfying to pull up to curbside the moment an order is ready. Bluedot, a location-technology company for quick-service restaurants to enhance drive-through and curbside pickups, helps them hit the mark using only software.
It is thanks to our customers and their trust in us, a small, but mighty startup, that inspires us to innovate, iterate and just try every day.
It is thanks to our team, their dedication and their fortitude during a worldwide pandemic that got us noticed. But we’ve been innovating all along, from hands-free toll payments, to frictionless drive-thrus, to location-enhanced AR experiences and more.
A heartfelt congratulations to all the companies we share this prestigious list with. We are deeply humbled. Thank you to all the innovators — teams, nonprofits, unsung heroes and leaders — who made the year better. Here’s to our collective success!
