the business world's own Oscars
Redwood Shores, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
Clarus Systems, Inc., a leading provider of integrated voice service management and testing solutions for IP Communication deployments, upgrades and transformations, today announced that the company was selected as a finalist for two categories in the 2008 American Business AwardsSM (The Stevie® Awards) - "Most Innovative Company" and "Best Product Development Organization/Department."
Hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" (New York Post , April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business. More than 2,600 entries from companies of all sizes in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in the 6th Annual Stevie Awards.
"We are pleased to receive this accolade from a program as prestigious as the American Business Awards," stated Brendan Reidy, President and CEO of Clarus Systems. "Innovation is key to our success as we strive to provide the most advanced technologies to provide customers with a complete, end-to-end service management solution. In addition, being named a finalist in the 'Best Product Development Organization/Department' is a testament to the hard work and dedication of each and every team member at Clarus Systems."
In 2007, Clarus Systems touted its innovation under the umbrella of "Empowering Unified Communications" and added high performance to Unified Communications (UC) by integrating business intelligence and performance management to give its customers an end-to-end voice service management solution. Designed to reflect and reinforce Clarus Systems' strategic focus around UC, the company unveiled a new logo, collateral materials and a redesign of its web site. Clarus used 2007 to educate the market on the criticality of management and testing applications and the concept of empowerment to help enterprises optimize IP Communication strategies for enhanced productivity, VoIP ROI and a sharpened focus on core business operations.
To further substantiate its innovation, the company recently announced ClarusIPC Plus+ 2.4 which is now generally available. This new version extends the company's integrated pillar approach to empowering Unified Communications by offering system validation through troubleshooting and diagnostics, business intelligence for detailed reporting and analytics, and performance management to define thresholds for optimized voice performance including server health, gateway capacity, media resources and device registration.
The Clarus Systems product development team worked fervently to enhance its flagship solution as part of the overall company strategy. The team, led by VP of Engineering Gurmeet Lamba, focused on the criticality of management and testing applications and the concept of "Empowering Unified Communication". The product development team at Clarus is comprised of engineering and technology veterans with the experience, know-how and vision to bridge the gap between business operations, IT and IPT. This proven strategy has elevated the importance of IPT to the C-level of an enterprise organization and the value it yields in terms of cost and productivity efficiencies, competitive advantages and knowledge leadership.
"American Business Award entries grew more than 30% this year, so being named a Finalist is more of an accomplishment than ever before," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed that Clarus Systems is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."
Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Thursday, June 12 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.
