The finalists of the 7th annual ITSPA Awards have been announced today, with another strong number of entries from across the VoIP and Unified Communications industry. The ITSPA Awards, sponsored by Magrathea, are designed to celebrate innovation and best practice within the sector and the winners will be announced on 19th March at the Tate Modern, London.
The award categories for this year include, Best Consumer VoIP, Best Business ITSP (Small Enterprise, Medium Enterprise and Corporate), Best VoIP CPE, Best VoIP Infrastructure, Best VoIP Innovation, the ITSPA Members’ Pick and the ITSPA Champion Award.
Malden Electronics have again conducted the technical testing for three award categories; Best Consumer VoIP; Best Business ITSP (Small Enterprise); and Best Business (Medium Enterprise). Entrants in these categories underwent two months of technical testing as well as submitting a written entry submission. Separately, entrants to all categories had to complete a written self-assessment, based on Business Performance, Innovation and Customer Service as well as providing an in depth case study. All entries were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges.
The ITSPA Members’ Pick was a selected shortlist from the membership, outlining specific organisations and people who they believed had provided real value to the industry this year. A vote will take place at the Awards ceremony to decide the winner. The ITSPA Champion Award is a new category and is chosen by the ITSPA Council, the elected steering group of the trade association.
Eli Katz, Chair of ITSPA Council said, “The increasingly competitive nature of the Awards is an indication that the market is maturing and has developed significantly since the inauguration of this event. I look forward to meeting all the finalists as well as all members of the industry on the 19th March.”
Linus Surguy, Technical Director of Magrathea, the ITSPA Awards sponsor said, “2015 has started at pace and we are really looking forward to seeing who the judges have selected as this year’s stand out performers. We continue to be very proud to support this important industry event, which has grown in size and stature over the years. We look forward to meeting you all in a few weeks’ time.”
