AudioEye Expands Sales Team to Address Rapidly Growing Sales Pipeline

TUCSON, Ariz., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AudioEye, Inc. (AEYE) ("AudioEye" or the "Company") today announced that it has added two sales professionals to its team, bringing the total to 6. The new team members will be based in Chicago and San Francisco.

"We are pleased to announce the expansion of our sales team in two key markets," said Todd Bankofier, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye. "Awareness of AudioEye's value is growing as more customers in our targeted end markets are seeking a complete managed service offering to address compliance with accessibility mandates as well as provide a measurable ROI in their business."

AudioEye is focused on markets characterized by large customer populations, notable compliance mandates, and a clear return on investment from accessibility initiatives. These end markets include financial services, human resources, government, education and e-commerce. In addition to securing notable reference customers in each vertical, AudioEye is seeing increased sales inquiries from prospective customers across all verticals. For example, AudioEye previously announced that it was launching one new bank site a day since January 1, 2017 in its financial services vertical.

Dr. Carr Bettis, Executive Chairman of AudioEye, stated: "It is gratifying to see accelerating adoption of our best-in-class technology platform across our targeted end markets. We have also secured a 100% customer renewal rate to-date, a strong testament to the value of our unique software in helping AudioEye's customers reach the up to 15% of the US population that cannot access digital content when inclusion has not been fully considered and embraced by designers, developers, and content authors. More organizations than ever are recognizing and addressing the need for digital accessibility, whether driven by compliance or commercial interests."
