Downers Grove, IL (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

KeyLimeTie, a Chicago area-based interactive design and development agency specializing in web and mobile technologies, is welcoming 2013 with a surge of momentum and growing platforms that promise to deliver exciting new ideas and products for clients in years to come. KeyLimeTie is riding a wave of 2012 success that saw the innovative design agency garner two prestigious awards, enter into exciting and forward-thinking partnerships and launch an industry-changing mobile product for restaurants.

For the third consecutive year, KeyLimeTie was named one of “Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For™,” and Inc. Magazine in August named the company to its “2012 Inc. 5000 List”. KeyLimeTie also engaged in partnerships with several Marketing and PR agencies as part of an ongoing effort to produce easy-to-use consumer interfacing products for the web, mobile and social landscape. Continuing to lead the design industry with exciting new ideas, KeyLimeTie in May launched MojoBistro, a unique platform that enables restaurants to quickly create custom applications.

“This has been an outstanding and very rewarding year for KeyLimeTie,” said Chris Pautsch, Co-founder and chief executive officer, KeyLimeTie. “It is a true testament to our company's innovative ideas, hard work and success to have been recognized in 2012 for these prestigious awards and to embark on such constructive partnerships that promise to bring even more growth and momentum in 2013.”

The Best and Brightest Award, presented annually by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), assesses organizations based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more. KeyLimeTie, known for its “work hard, play hard” atmosphere, was recognized by NABR for its commitment to excellence in employee enrichment and its engaging team environment.

“This year's winning companies represent high standards and are an example for other companies to emulate," said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president. “They truly are an ideal place for employees to work.”

Inc. Magazine named KeyLimeTie to its 2012 “Inc. 5000 List,” an exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. For the past three years, KeyLimeTie achieved a 119 percent revenue growth rate, earning it a ranking of No. 2171 on the Inc. list.

“Recognition by Inc. Magazine is a true hallmark of our success as an entrepreneurial company,” said Brian Pautsch, co-founder and president, KeyLimeTie. “To be one of only 240 Chicago area-based companies to be recognized is an incredible honor.”

The high-profile 2012 National Restaurant Association Show was the stage for KeyLimeTie's launch of its revolutionary mobile product, MojoBistro. MojoBistro is designed specifically with restaurants in mind and allows clients to create their own mobile presence via their customer-centric mobile applications and websites. A unique set of features showcases the menu, allows customers to book reservations, communicate with customers through push notifications and interacts with existing social networks such as Yelp, Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, along with much more. Restaurants currently using MojoBistro-produced applications include Carlucci Restaurant and Bar, Two Brothers Brewing Company and Quay.
