Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) March 18, 2008
The Illinois Technology Association (ITA) announced on March 10th that BridgePoint Technologies, an Oak Brook-based Information Technology consulting firm, has been named a finalist for the 2008 CityLIGHTS Rising Star Award, which is given to the company that has emerged from its start-up phase to distinguish itself in the technology marketplace.
ITA will present the awards to the winners at the ninth annual CityLIGHTS Awards Gala on April 3 at Union Station. CityLIGHTS is ITA's annual celebration of vitality and innovation in Illinois' fast-growing technology community. The Awards Gala is the largest gathering of technology executives in the state, and ITA expects more than 650 attendees at the 2008 event.
This year's pool of applicants was far and away the most remarkable yet," said Fred Hoch, president of ITA. "Illinois is privileged to have such an outstanding technology community - and ITA proud to be a part of it. We'd like to extend our thanks to all of those who submitted nominations to this year's program."
Founded in 2003, BridgePoint Technologies has been focused on delivering innovative, scalable business solutions that are designed to reduce costs and drive value through technology. The company is comprised of four strategic business units - Project Solutions, IT Managed Services, Hosting, and IT Staffing - that offer clients a full suite of IT consulting capabilities with unparalleled customer service and dedication to quality.
When ITA announced that nominations were open, many of BridgePoint's customers reached out to share their positive experiences in working with the BridgePoint team. "Milano selected BridgePoint as our product development and support provider for our initial entry into the software market, the Calibra™ Performance System. BridgePoint's business approach and commitment to establishing and nurturing client relationships has far exceeded our expectations. They demonstrate a rare combination of technical competency, business savvy and people skills that far exceeds other firms we have encountered in our 30 years in the IT services arena. They suggest innovative solutions that have helped us to secure a major account and helped to position our product for future growth. BridgePoint themselves have grown at a fast clip with no degradation in service or level of quality," said Anthony Mattucci, Executive Vice President of Milano, Inc.
Mattucci continued on to say "They do it right the first time...they don't keep fixing things that they broke in the first place and charging you for it. They take the time to understand the business application of the product and to increase our ability to go to market with a sophisticated offering."
"BridgePoint Technologies is honored to be a finalist for the Rising Star Award, but we are equally proud that so many of our clients have had such positive experiences working with us that they chose to nominate us for this award. We would like to extend our thanks to them, as without each of our customers' willingness to give a young, start-up firm a chance, we wouldn't be in the position we are in today," stated Michael Millhouse, President and CEO of BridgePoint Technologies.
