BuzzBell, the only communication platform that gives users the power to differentiate important messages and calls when they are sent, is named as one of TIME’s 100 Best Inventions of 2021. Powered by In-telligent’s proprietary override technology, BuzzBell uniquely allows users to bypass the recipient’s smartphone’s silent settings with an audible vibration (BUZZ) or continuous ring (BELL) to ensure their messages and calls are seen and heard immediately. 

For this year’s list, TIME solicited nominations both from its editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process. It then evaluated the nominations on originality, creativity, efficacy, ambition and impact. The result: 100 groundbreaking inventions that are making the world better, smarter, and even a bit more fun.

The technologies and products that were showcased this year came from the fields of accessibility, artificial intelligence, apps and software, augmented and virtual reality, beauty, connectivity, consumer electronics, design, education, entertainment, experimental, finance, fitness, food and drink, home health, household, medical care, outdoors, parenting, productivity, robotics, social good, style, sustainability, toys and games, transportation, travel, wellness and special mentions. 

Fittingly described as “messaging that makes sense,” BuzzBell is featured in the Connectivity category. 

“It is truly an honor to receive this award from TIME, a great and respected media brand for nearly a hundred years,” said founder, CEO and president of In-telligent, developer of the BuzzBell app. “In-telligent has pushed the boundaries in reimagining what it means to “stay in touch.” By integrating our proprietary life-saving technology into a chat application, everyone across the world can now enjoy the peace of mind that they’ll always be reached when it matters. Being included on this list is a testament to our team’s hard work, diligence and commitment to our mission of keeping the world safer and better informed. We thank the editors and staff at TIME for this notable recognition.”
