(PRWEB) November 29, 2017
LabRoots has been named a silver winner in three categories in Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. LabRoots has been awarded the silver in the Creative Department of the Year, Sales Department of the Year, and Technology Department of the Year.
Functioning as a highly-collaborative unit, the development and creative teams worked diligently to meet the increased demands spawned by the sales team’s outstanding efforts to drive revenue and growth, seeing a 25% increase in 2016, and then another 25% in 2017. Working closely with each client, the sales, design and development teams worked to design and build custom content, webinars and virtual events.
“We are incredibly proud of our entire team and all the work they accomplished this past year,” said Greg Cruikshank, president and CEO of LabRoots. “These are highly sought-after awards categories and we are honored to be taking home three. We know we were up against some tough competition, which now acts as a driving force to continuously seek out ways to do better and provide a better service.”
Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was particularly hotly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2017 honors were presented in 65 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company, Most Innovative Company, Best Place to Work, Support Department, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Best New Product, App, Event and Website of the Year.
“Reviewing this year’s entries in Best in Biz Awards was like going to an NBA All-Star game — you end up shaking your head in admiration, smiling and saying, ‘Oh man, that’s gooood,'” said Dale Dauten, King Features Syndicate, returning to judge the awards for the sixth year. “And then the next one is even better. It’s a top-that competition.”
Since 2011, winners of Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels composed of prominent editors and reporters from some of the most respected newspapers, TV outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panels, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners. The 2017 judging panel included: Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Investment Advisor Magazine, Laptop, MediaPost, Pittsburgh Business Times, Security Products Magazine, Wired, WLRN and Yahoo Tech.
