Global Software Solutions Company Itransition Earns Silver Stevies for Best Tech Support, Customer Satisfaction

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Fri, Feb 23, 2024 @ 02:04 PM

23 Spotlight square-Feb-23-2024-07-03-27-3579-PMStevie-winner Itransition is a global software development company providing engineering and consulting services in a range of industries.

Founded in 1998 by 10 engineers, they now serve customers in 40+ countries and employ 3000+ specialists working daily to deliver business value through technology. Itransition has successfully completed 1530+ projects for 800+ customers from non-profit organizations to large enterprises that own hundreds of brands, differing in business models in various domains.

Building strategic technology partnership is their key priority. The team meticulously adjusts engagement scenarios and partnership schemes to efficiently and transparently deliver solutions tailored to each customer’s goals. They are a recognized partner of the industry leaders such as Microsoft, UiPath, Atlassian, Amazon Web Services, among others.

Best Technical Support Solution and Achievement in Customer Satisfaction
As an Atlassian Gold Solution Partner, Itransition helps its customers improve their IT service management (ITSM) processes. They carry out ITSM process optimizations aiming to create significant cost savings for hundreds of their customers, including IATA, Railsr, Reapit, and many more.

For example, Itransition helped Railsr, a UK-based fintech company delivering the global embedded finance platform, transform and improve ITSM processes. They configured the customer's JSM according to ITIL best practices, setting up additional workflows and automation rules, conforming issue types, introducing new roles and security levels, while optimizing workload distribution and improving SLA success rate. Thanks to improved processes and introduced automations, the customer achieved 20% faster ticket resolution and 15% faster first response to request.

Itransition analyzed ITSM processes of their customer Reapit, a technology provider that serves residential estate agencies, and delivered recommendations on how to improve them based on Atlassian best practices. Their team customized and simplified Reapit's client portal, added new automation rules, and improved reporting. As a result, first-response time for high-priority incidents was reduced by 50% and the client portal usage increased by 15%.

To stay ahead of the curve and harness new tech, their company-wide Atlassian Centre of Excellence monitors and pilots emerging technologies and develops prototypes and proofs of concept. After testing techniques within the Centre of Excellence, they integrate them into customer solutions.

Given some limitations of JSM and other Atlassian tools, Itransition is regularly developing new approaches and workarounds and employing third-party plugins, thus extending out-of-the-box functionality. To further enrich their in-house ITSM expertise, they have been continuously expanding their employee certification program, with 30% more Atlassian and ITIL certifications each year passed by Itransition’s employees.

Aiming to build mutually beneficial relationships with customers, they have launched Feedback Management (FMP) and Customer Success (CSP) programs with a dedicated team of senior executives and representatives from all the departments. Within the FMP, they hold in-process and follow-up interviews, generating action items for improvement. Within the CSP, they measure Customer Satisfaction, Customer Effort, and Net Promoter scores, as well as help clients calculate business benefits, for instance, ROI boost or productivity increase. Their clients’ success stories with projects for such industry-leading companies as Terumo, JATO, etc. contributed to the prominent positions in such rankings as Zinnov Zones, Forrester's Modern Application Development Services, Everest Group’s Digital Product Engineering Services PEAK Matrix, IT Europa Channel Awards, and many more.

Itransition won two Silver Stevie® Awards for Achievement in Customer Satisfaction and for Best Technical Support Solution in Computer Services in The 2023 International Business Awards®.

Pixel Pioneer Porotech Develops Game-Changing MicroLED Display Technology

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Thu, Feb 22, 2024 @ 01:43 PM

23 spotlight Square-Feb-22-2024-06-38-20-0504-PMStevie-winner Porotech is a microLED display pioneer and global gallium nitride (GaN) material technology developer, with a proprietary approach to GaN-based red, green, and blue (RGB) MicroLEDs.

Porotech
announced the world’s first demonstration of an "all-in-one" full-color display of microLED pixels in October 2022, driven by Porotech’s proprietary DynamicPixelTuning® (DPT®) technology that allows a single pixel to display the full-color spectrum.

Porotech’s disruptive DPT technology aims to revolutionize the display industry. While traditional microLED displays are made up of separate RGB sub-pixels to display full color, DPT technology allows a single microLED pixel to display any color in the visible spectrum, including bright white.

In traditional microLED displays, red sub-pixels are currently made with a different material to green and blue, creating a complicated supply chain, with high levels of waste and inefficiencies. However, Porotech has harnessed a new proprietary material, PoroGaN®, which can display any color on the spectrum. This simplifies and improves the design of the display and optical system and removes major manufacturing roadblocks.

With a monolithic pixel, colors are no longer constrained by the three primary colors, which significantly expands the available range. In addition, by replacing the traditional four sub-pixel format with a single microLED, this technology can increase pixel density of any given display four-fold. This creates substantial improvements in resolution and screen brightness, which is particularly important on small form factor displays, such as wearables and augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) headsets.Porotech guys

Similarly, a monolithic pixel can also lower costs and produce higher yields for large area displays such as video walls and automotive applications, as it eliminates two mass transfer steps in the manufacturing process.

Greater flexibility, simplicity, and lower power consumption of the whole optical design can be achieved when DPT is used as the basis for the technology, supporting the production of more sustainable displays. Furthermore, DPT removes the need for mass transfer, reducing the costly waste involved in microLED production and making DPT a supply chain-ready solution, massively simplifying display manufacture.

Described in 2023 as "the most impressive technology at CES" by display technology expert Karl Guttag, the improvements in resolution, color, brightness, and efficiency can revolutionize consumer technologies like wearables, AR, and VR.

The manufacturing benefits afforded by DPT requiring only one material to produce will solve expensive challenges that major corporate R&D teams have struggled with for years, with companies like Apple, Meta, and Samsung investing considerable resources into achieving a monolithic pixel.

Porotech is currently working with major original equipment manufacturer channel partners that will build DPT technology into their products to sell to consumers. Initial proof of principle projects will then develop into nonrecurring engineering co-developments and eventually IP licensing or manufacturing supply relationships to proliferate the technology across multiple applications and worldwide.

Since winning their Stevie® Award, Porotech has announced the world's first 0.26-inch monolithic full-color microdisplay, a significant milestone for both Porotech and the entire microLED industry, as only DPT pixels can meet the specification, performance, reliability, and cost required for AR glasses.

Porotech won a Gold Stevie Award for Emerging Technology Business Technology Solution in The International Business Awards®

World's First AI-powered, Fully Automated Talent Sourcing Platform Talenya Wins Bronze Tech Company of Year Stevie

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Wed, Jun 21, 2023 @ 02:44 PM

Talenya SquareStevie-winner Talenya (a Paycor company) offers the world's first AI-powered, fully-automated talent sourcing platform. Launched in 2016, Talenya was created in answer to the difficulties recruiters and talent sourcers experience in finding qualified, diverse talent in a competitive candidate market. The industry runs on time-consuming keyword search and one-by-one messaging to potential candidates.

Talenya is the first and only provider of AI technology that automates the sourcing process from search through engagement. It uses machine learning to gauge recruiters’ needs and preferences for each search, and then automatically reaches out to candidates over several channels to ask them to interview for the job opening. It also finds diverse candidates with 98% accuracy and helps level the playing field for underrepresented talent. Talenya is committed to social responsibility and creating a workforce that uplifts people of all identities equitably.

In the past year, Talenya has been recognized several times for its commitment to social responsibility. Vation Ventures acknowledged Talenya in its “Tech For Good” quarterly report for its machine learning functionality, which recognize diverse profiles with 98% accuracy and allow users to boost participation of varying underrepresented identities in their search results without sacrificing quality, and while avoiding the potential for unconscious bias. In this way, Talenya is helping to build a more equitable and inclusive workforce and helping recruiters meet diversity KPIs.

Talenya is committed to creating a more equal world with its Diversity AI, and it tries to live by these same values in its own employee base. Talenya widens the pool of potential diverse candidates by searching and engaging on a multitude of channels automatically, tapping a database of 1.5 billion profiles across the internet.

While many tools can increase a recruiter’s access beyond LinkedIn, none have as large a pool as Talenya. The Sourcing AI scours the internet not only on LinkedIn but on sites like Github, StackOverflow, and a range of others which may not be as obvious. Given the difficulty of finding diverse candidates in general, the wider pool allows for many more identities to be included in every search.

In addition, Talenya software predicts diverse talent at 98% accuracy. It is the first software to find diverse profiles by inferring skills often left off profiles by people of underrepresented groups. Other recruitment tools may allow searchers to filter by identity, but Talenya is the only solution that uses AI to understand and predict a candidate’s identity based on their skills and experience—and to understand that these candidates usually underplay their qualifications which makes them harder to find in Boolean search.

Since Winning Their Stevie Award
In the past 12 months, Talenya has grown to become a leader in a newly created category—automatic talent sourcing. Major brands around the world, such as Xerox, Logitech, and Marvell, have adopted Talenya’s technology to double their interview pipeline. 

Talenya is taking on the herculean mission of developing AI algorithms that can think and operate like a human recruiter in sourcing and engaging with talent. They will continue with efforts to perfect their platform and deliver more qualified and diverse applicants to jobs processed. 

Recently, they have been focused on enhancing the algorithms as well as the user interface that allow recruiters to “train” the software on their preferences and priorities, so that the software can find and fetch high-quality talent to interview. Talenya’s talent database is now the biggest available today and continues to climb beyond 1.5 billion profiles.

Talenya won a Bronze Stevie Award for Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year Among Organizations With Up to 100 Employees in The 2022 International Business Awards®.

Stevie-Winner Eastvantage Wins Gold for Their #everybodysells 360°+ Business Development Strategy

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Wed, Jun 21, 2023 @ 02:27 PM

Established in 2010 by a Euro-Filipino team to help foreign companies tap into the rich Philippine talent pool, Eastvantage has since grown and now provides business solutions to global companies. It enables offshore operations from its locations in the Philippines, India, Bulgaria, and Vietnam. eastvantage logo
The management team brings a wealth of global insights and local knowledge in the areas of digital transformation, customer experience, and business support. Combining expertise with a hands-on approach to managing client relationships, Eastvantage aims to make outsourcing simple and seamless.

Eastvantage has grown steadily through the years until 2018 when the company realized it needed to strengthen its operations for it to be able to cope with the heightened requirements of its clients and the market as a whole. Thus, later that year, the company brought in Kamal Asarpota, a seasoned executive with a successful track record of delivering financial and business results with global organizations in the ITES/BPM Industry.

Supported by top management, Kamal began promoting an engaged and empowered team culture. In 2019, the company strengthened its core by improving operational efficiencies and getting the right people. The strategy established Eastvantage as a reliable partner, validated by seamless business continuity during the pandemic lockdowns.

When the pandemic struck the Philippines in early 2020, Eastvantage immediately put measures in place to minimize the impact on the company’s gains from the previous years and garnered a Silver Stevie Award for its COVID-19 response efforts.

The company continued strengthening its operations and sales team throughout 2020 and 2021. It reinforced its #everybodysells 360°+ business development cycle strategy, which covers pre-sales to operations. The strategy involves not only the sales and marketing teams but the whole operations support team, including HR, recruitment, IT, finance, and administration.

This, together with the entry of a seasoned investor in 2021 who brought in a deep understanding of scaling service operations, incentivized internal stakeholders to be aligned with company growth goals. Further, the company expanded its IT Managed Services.

These measures enabled the company to grow its existing business simultaneously with new business acquisitions, at an increased win rate of 19% compared to 5% in 2020. By the end of 2021, the company:

  • had an accounts portfolio of 50 clients, a 70%+ increase from 29 clients in 2020;
  • grew its headcount by 70%+, from 473 full-time employees to 815;
  • exceeded its EBITDA target;
  • closed the year at a 12% revenue growth; and
  • earned the highest annual income in its 11 years of operations.

Eastvantage has not only survived the threats to general business stability brought about by the pandemic, but it has evidently also outgrown the startup phase. Now in the expansion stage of the business, the company has opened up additional delivery centers in the Philippines, India, Bulgaria, and Vietnam. Further, it now has a US-based Business Strategy Advisor for its diversification in North America.

The growth is expected to continue, as Eastvantage is bent on seizing opportunities by continually evolving in line with market demand. The higher focus on complex and digital services is one of the initiatives in this direction and is expected to contribute high value to the business. The direction is to further expand globally and be the Managed IT Services partner of choice.

Eastvantage won a Gold Stevie Award for Achievement in Sales or Revenue Generation in The 2022 International Business Awards®.
