MIRAMAR, Fla., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., the leader in on-demand customer management solutions, was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the New Product Business to Business Services category in the 15th annual American Business Awards today.
The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning "crowned," the awards were recently presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.
More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Arise Virtual Solution was nominated in the New Product Business to Business Services category for the launch of its patented, cloud-based Starmatic® Scheduling System, which combines telephony with state-of-the-art mapping, mobile device technology, and scheduling software. Starmatic® was developed and marketed by Arise to give independently operated call centers the ability to handle multiple agent schedules and programs, securely, quickly, and with the flexibility needed for rapid changes.
For companies who purchase the software, it provides unique benefits unlike any other system out there. The Starmatic® Scheduling System was designed to very efficiently enable companies to allow their workforce to self-schedule work in 30-minute increments. A critical design element is that a workforce can schedule themselves, versus centralized scheduling. It is a bottom-up scheduling system, giving companies the ability to provide workers the freedom to decide when, and how long they will work. Arise offers this patented tool as a SAAS solution - providing companies looking to smoothly transition into opportunities within the shared economy.
"It is an honor to win the Stevie Award for Arise's Starmatic® Scheduling System. It showcases the hard work and dedication our team puts into developing forward-looking technology that provides solutions to meet the needs of tomorrow," said John A. Meyer, CEO of Arise Virtual Solutions Inc. "The judges selected Arise for this prestigious award because Starmatic® is in a category all its own, enabling the scheduling of on-demand work, making it one of few products that can meet the needs of the shared economy."
Mr. Meyer went on to say, "I'd like to specifically call out the talents of our Information Technology Team, who were instrumental in the development of the Starmatic® Scheduling System."
More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners. One judge remarked that the innovative software "addresses the need for a robust tool to integrate [the administration] of work and responds to changes in how companies engage their workers."
"Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
