CHICAGO, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Out of 643 nominees, Argo Translation of Glenview, IL has been selected as one of the Top 100 Finalists still in the running for the 15th annual Chicago Innovation Awards. The awards celebrate the most innovative new products and services in the Chicago region across all organization sizes, sectors and industries. 1500 business and civic leaders will come together to honor the winners when they are announced on October 25th at Chicago's Harris Theater.
The innovation nominated by Argo Translation is attributed to integrations the company wrote that make up their internal Argo Operations system – a translation management system that tracks clients' spending, puts together compliance reports, and creates customized client portals.
"We are really honored by the nomination into the top 100 companies for the Chicago Innovation Award," says Peter Argondizzo, founder of Argo Translation. "Our systems are internal and not always apparent from the outside, but these systems allow us to focus on the important aspects of our work. The systems completely eliminate the more mundane, administrative aspects of project management. The set of tools allows us to reduce friction in the workflow and provide clients with high quality translation at a fair cost. In the background, the system collects data and exposes an incredibly detailed set of reports to our customers. This data allows them to quickly create translation budgets and meet any compliance requirements they have."
As one of the Top 100 Finalists, Argo Translation will receive a $2,500 scholarship to attend The Practical Innovator, a day-long executive education course on September 29th led by top faculty who teach innovation at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.
Each of the Top 100 Finalists is also in the running for the annual "People's Choice Award," selected through online balloting at http://www.chicagoinnovationawards.com/2016-peoples-choice-award-2/.
Out of the Top 100 Finalists, the judges will select 10 winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards, as well as 10 winners of the Up-and-Comer Awards representing innovation in the start-up community, the Social Innovator Award, the Collaboration Award, and 3 new Neighborhood Award winners, which will showcase innovation occurring in Chicago's diverse neighborhoods. The winners will be invited to ring the NASDAQ Bell in New York City, invited to separate meetings with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Governor Bruce Rauner, and Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle, and receive widespread media recognition.
