We’ve seen private companies and government agencies radically improving performance by taking ideas generated by employees and customers seriously.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
BOSTON – Massachusetts Technology Corporation (MTC) is proud to announce its idea and suggestion platform, Vocoli, has been selected as a finalist for the 19th Annual MITX Awards in the Best Work Productivity Technology category. Held annually by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX), the awards recognize excellence in concepts and creations in marketing and technology produced or developed in New England.
Described as “an employee suggestion box – on steroids,” Vocoli gives employees, managers and customers the ability to submit, share, rate and track ideas, add comments and give feedback, monitor progress on implementation, offer challenges and rewards, and measure the pulse of the organization through polls and surveys. While a number of products focus on collaborative communication within organizations, Vocoli also helps organizations improve “vertical communication.”
Unlike poorly implemented suggestion boxes or online forms that are no more than lip service, Vocoli's clean interface is familiar to anyone who has used social media.
A sampling of Vocoli customers include the City of Washington, DC, the Calgary Public Library, San Mateo Credit Union, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“We’ve seen time and time again private companies and government agencies radically improving performance by taking ideas generated by employees and customers seriously,” said MTC’s CEO, Rich Kneece, “We’re proud to help companies tap their greatest resource, their workforce, and honored to be recognized by MITX.”
Since 1996, the MITX Awards has grown to become the largest and most prestigious awards competition in the country showcasing the best creative marketing and technological accomplishments emerging from New England. This year over 120 senior leaders from Boston businesses judged entries for the 32 MITX award categories.
“Innovation is thriving in Boston and all around New England, companies are creating products and services that have a positive impact for us personally and professionally,” said MITX President Amy Quigley. “Our 2015 finalists are powering innovative ideas and contributions in marketing, technology and design. We are thrilled to honor their amazing achievements.”
Vocoli will be recognized with the other finalists in the category of Best Work Productivity Technology at the 19th Annual MITX Awards Ceremony traditionally attended by over 1,000 of the region’s top marketing, technology and design professionals. Winners will be announced at the ceremony on May 14th at the Marriott Copley Place. This year’s ceremony will include host, Boston legend and comedic superstar Lenny Clarke, technology demos from finalists, select final round judging, networking, and of course, the presentation of the prestigious MITX Awards.
