NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. today announced its first annual Best-Led Companies list, naming LivePerson, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in Conversational AI, one of its Best-Led Companies. The data-driven list recognizes 250 "remarkable companies run by remarkable leadership teams" selected from a total of 10,000 evaluated firms.
Companies were analyzed via an algorithm that identified the best companies according to their leadership teams' accomplishments in four areas: performance and value creation, market penetration and customer engagement, talent, and leadership team.
All 250 companies named to the list have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and more.

The company's innovations lead with AI to solve the challenges brands face, from bringing safer customer experiences to industries like DeFi and crypto to helping brands deal with unpredictable volume surges and run rapid COVID testing programs. Brands using its Conversational Cloud platform have seen results including up to 20% increases in average order value and customer satisfaction scores, up to 10x online sales conversions versus traditional websites, and 50% lower labor costs and agent attrition.
