[PRESSWIRE] LAS VEGAS, March 15, 2017 -- SAVO has won 2 Silver Stevie® Awards in the Virtual Technology Sales Enablement and Pre-sales Team of the Year category in the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world's top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world's leading business awards programs including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM.
The awards were presented during a gala banquet on Friday, February 24 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. More than 650 executives from around the world attended.
More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year's competition, an increase of 10% over 2016. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 77 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges.
More than 75 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging in February. Finalists were determined by another 77 judges.
SAVO Group worked closely with GMC Software and Zebra Technologies to create solutions that were not only enjoyable for their sellers; but also a highly effective sales tool. The Stevie Award judges agreed.
"We are thrilled to congratulate GMC Software and Zebra Technologies and proud to work with them," said Jason Liu, SAVO CEO. "Both customers had unique and very different challenges. GMC Software was bridging the gap between the proliferation of new content and the sales teams who needed to sell them. Using SAVO technology, Zebra Technologies accelerated its sales enablement strategy across a newly combined global sales organization following its acquisition of Motorola Solutions' Enterprise business in 2014," said Liu.
"The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be among the most competitive and fastest-growing of our awards programs," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. "The growth of the program illustrates the importance of the functions highlighted – sales enablement, business development and customer service – to successful enterprises of all types, and how integral recognition in these domains are to building and maintaining corporate reputations."
