Current status: Feeling honored.
With last night's VMA's, everyone has awards on their brain. Why do these awards matter? Because other people say you're doing something right. Third party validation is one of the most important forms of recognition as it confirms that things like a strategy, viewpoint or product is accurate. At Five9, being recognized by an independent organization underscores that our company and solutions are on the path to continued success; that we're doing something right.
Recently, Five9 was honored with two Stevie Awards from the 2016 International Business Awards. These awards are given to organizations recognizing outstanding performances in the workplace, product and company focused. Five9 has demonstrated a good balance of internal company recognition as well as being recognized for the product and services we provide. It's the best of both worlds.
Silver Stevie Award: Company of the Year - Computer Software
Five9 was honored with this award because of several key accomplishments made by the company since 2015. This includes being named a leader in the space by industry analysts, continuous increased revenue, and growth into the enterprise market.
Five9 also received the Bronze Stevie Award: Best New Product or Service of the Year - Business-to-Business Products. This award was for Freedom, which was an earlier release of the Five9 Virtual Contact Center. Five9 was honored with this award because of the new intuitive user interface and compelling benefits received from using the solution.
It's one thing for us as a company to say we're doing a good job and providing the best possible solutions and service to our customers, but it's even better to hear it from a third party.
