---- — WINDHAM – A local technology company is making a dynamic business move on the New Hampshire corporate scene.

Dynamic Benchmarking, a provider of online business benchmarking software, is a finalist for the New Hampshire High Technology Council’s “Product of the Year” award, being presented tomorrow night in Bedford.

Five companies are up for the award, which recognizes originality, performance, design, function and service.

Dynamic Benchmarking already has earned a judges’ award in the competition.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Betsy Delfosse, chief operations and technical development officer. “Our work with some of the top associations in the country has proven that our online benchmarking platform brings data collection and information delivery to a whole new level.”

The Dynamic team will have seven minutes to discuss and demonstrate the product to an estimated audience of 300.

“We are pretty psyched we have made it this far,” founding partner Lisa Vivinetto said.

Vivinetto, Delfosse and Jane Higgins were three friends who met through community involvement in Windham and decided to pursue the business opportunity.

Their 2-year-old company has two contract managers and one employee, but expectations for business growth.

“We’re definitely working hard on staying virtual and staying small,” Vivinetto said.

But “the sky is the limit,” for their product, she said.

Dynamic Benchmarking’s Stack-up product lets companies and organizations move data about operations, finances, human resources and performance to the cloud, then output the information for comparisons, aggregation and year-over-year analysis.

The High Tech Council said the company uses the latest cloud-based technology and the platform is “uniquely positioned to help businesses of all types.”
