#CV10Years – We’re Recognised for Innovation

By Mandy Reed, Marketing Manager (Global)

One of the biggest highlights of 2013 (a year of lots of exciting milestones) for Creative Virtual as a company was winning a Silver Stevie Award in the category of Most Innovative Company of the Year in Europe. If you missed our big announcement, you can read the press release here and Founder & CEO, Chris’ blog post here. Or better yet, watch this video of Chris accepting our trophy at the awards gala in Barcelona in October.

Lots of organisations throw the term ‘innovation’ around, claiming to have innovative products and ground-breaking solutions even when their offerings are anything but. For us, innovation is not something we take lightly—developing and implementing truly innovative, cutting-edge technology is what we’re all about at Creative Virtual and something we’ve taken great pride in for over ten years. To win this award as part of the 10th Annual International Business Awards was a huge honour for us all.

Winning this award isn’t the only time we’ve been recognised for our innovation. In recent years we’ve also been shortlisted for an Econsultancy Innovation Award in the category of ‘Innovation in Customer & User Experience’ as well as selected to participate in the Innovation Showcase at BAI Retail Delivery.

In January of this year our technology was acknowledged again, this time as part of the 8th Annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. We have been named finalists in two categories, ‘New IVR or Web Service Solution’ and ‘Sales or Customer Service Solutions Technology Partner of the Year’, and will find out if we’ve won Gold, Silver or Bronze at the Awards Gala on 21st February.
