DANBURY, Conn., July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of global relocation services, has earned one gold and eight silver 2015 CQIA Innovation Prize awards for nine separate projects that represent the efforts of nearly 30 Cartus employees.
The Gold Award-winning Cartus innovation this year was submitted by a team from the company's Intercultural & Language Solutions division, which in the past has needed to produce nearly 3,000 paper manuals each year for worldwide users of its various product offerings. However, the team made the decision to convert all of its intercultural and language learning materials to an e-delivery model via tablets. "We needed a solution that would get us out of the printing business," according to the team's application. The results have been nothing less than spectacular in terms of dollar savings of production costs, postage, preparation, and shipping time. The tablet distribution has also facilitated 21st-century delivery of materials, videos, and other online learning tools and has resulted in dramatically higher customer satisfaction ratings.
The Silver Award-winning initiatives represented other time- and cost-saving innovations by Cartus teams in the areas of accounting/financial; real estate; and human resources.
"Attending the annual CQIA event offers us a unique opportunity to meet our fellow innovators from a very diverse roster of participants," said Patricia Small, Cartus vice president of global learning & development. "Every year, the Cartus attendees are extremely impressed with the innovative work being done in Connecticut's organizations, and we are very proud to be included in such an elite group."
"CQIA's mission has been to recognize the highest ethical standards used in combination with advanced business processes and innovative approaches to improve the economic vitality of Connecticut and all of its people," said Sheila Carmine, the organization's founder and executive director. Not for just one industry, one city, or one region, the CQIA Innovation Award's prizes have been won by organizations from all over the state, and it is known as "Connecticut's award." Carmine added that since 1995, more than 600 organizations have won CQIA Innovation Prizes.
Since it began participating in the CQIA program 19 years ago, Cartus has been honored with 15 gold and 284 silver prizes. The prizes were conferred at CQIA's 28th Annual Conference on Quality and Innovation, held at the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford.
