By combining employee feedback, industry expert opinions, and a deep dive into intellectual property, Statista identified the 200 most innovative companies in the U.S., with Sorenson proudly ranking among them.

“Sorenson’s culture thrives on innovation,” said Ryan Sullivan, Sorenson’s Chief Product Officer. “This recognition is a direct result of our team’s dedication to developing products that empower inclusive communication.
