The finalists of the 8th 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 11th May at The Deck, National Theatre in 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 Council Pick.
Malden Electronics 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 Council Pick Award is chosen by the ITSPA Council, the elected steering group of the trade association.
Eli Katz, Chair of ITSPA Council said, “The ITSPA Awards continue to go from strength to strength, with this year’s entries providing a particularly strong set of finalists. I am proud that the quality of the finalists genuinely reflects the strength of the rapidly developing next generation communications industry.”
Linus Surguy, Technical Director of Magrathea, the ITSPA Awards sponsor said, “Magrathea is delighted to again be sponsoring this prestigious industry event and we look forward to another great occasion at this stunning new venue. We wish all finalists the best of luck and eagerly await meeting everyone on the 11th May.”
