MightyCall Wins a GOLD STEVIE® Award in the 2020 International Business Awards®
Palo Alto, California – 10 September, 2020 – MightyCall was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Telecommunications Company of the Year – Small Business category in The 17th Annual International Business Awards® today.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.
As the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, 1 December.
There was still competition, with more than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. The Telecommunications industry is always a crowded category, but MightyCall prevailed in the Small Business section.
One judge, in describing his vote for MightyCall, said, “MightyCall for small businesses is remarkable and clearly a service designed to not only help the customers, but also save them some money. This is a great example of leveraging technology for helping people.”
Dmitry Lephikov, MightyCall CFO, noted, “We pride ourselves on giving small business the tools to compete against bigger companies, and this award is a great recognition of that, especially when looking at all the other fantastic nominees.”
Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organizations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year’s International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organizations. The commitment we’ve seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.
