bmobile joins the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce in inviting applications for the new Business Technology Award category in the Chamber’s 2018 Champions of Business Awards. The new technology award was added to this year’s lineup of prestigious awards to acknowledge and reward companies which leverage Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to provide excellence in services and solutions. The winner of the Business Technology Award will also receive a customized bmobile Business Solutions Package valued at $10,000.00. Nominations are open until August 17th at midnight and the award will be presented to the winner at the Champions of Business Awards Ceremony and Gala to be held on November 1st at the National Academy for Performing Arts in Port of Spain.
The buzz and excitement that was generated by the introduction of a new award focusing on ICT underscores the significance of technology in all types of businesses, large or small with simple or complex operations. Research on the link between ICT adoption and business productivity and even on a country’s GDP, shows that it is a critical enabler of sustainable business growth in the private and public sectors, as well as the development of the national economy as a whole. The growth becomes even more pronounced with the consistent effort and collaboration of both the public and private sectors. “As the technology leader in the local telecom landscape, bmobile is proud to continue to do its part to support our business and national development through our sponsorship of this new and important Business Technology Award” said Rakesh Goswami, TSTT’s Executive Vice President – Strategic Alliance, Enterprise and Tobago Operations.
Companies being nominated for the award do not have to be ICT companies, but are companies which have successfully demonstrated how technology helps their business to deliver excellence in their services and solutions. “In this digital era, ICT is the underlying force that is driving much of the innovative solutions that have resulted in an increase in the productivity of goods and services in all sectors” said Goswami during a recent radio interview. “Whether small, medium or large, more companies worldwide are using technology to handle customer services in a more efficient and cost-effective way. The businesses which are responsive to these changes will be the ones to achieve market success.”
The Champions of Business Awards is one of the Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s signature events which highlights the contributions of some of Trinidad and Tobago’s finest business minds, recognizing their performance and excellence within the local business community. Established leaders, emerging entrepreneurs and high performing companies are nominated by peers and members of the public from which winners are subsequently selected.
The $10K-valued bmobile Business Solutions Package will consist of customized communications services specifically designed to support the further advancement of the company receiving the Business Technology Award. Nominees have until August 17th to submit their applications and must satisfy several criteria including, being a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago or a registered business operating locally or internationally, and must have demonstrated how the technology-based solution or service had a significant impact upon its target market.
