The Stevies are widely recognized as one of the leading global business awards competitions.
Arkadin Total Connect, a Microsoft Lync hosted service which provides a fully integrated UC ecosystem, captured a Silver and Bronze Stevie for ‘Best New Product or Service of the Year’ in Cloud Services and Telecommunications categories respectively. Silver Stevie awards were won for ‘Customer Service Team of the Year’ and ‘Fastest Growing Company of the Year’ for growth in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
