AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - September 01, 2016) - Lifesize has been named the gold winner in Enterprise Services in Best in Biz Awards 2016 International, the only independent global business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. More than 270 public and private companies worldwide competed in this year's program.
Lifesize is a leading global provider of award-winning conferencing technology that covers web, audio and video communication. Its product line ranges from plug-and-play HD camera and phone systems for any meeting room to an easy-to-use cloud-based conferencing application that allows people to connect from any device, anywhere.
"Our main goal with Lifesize is to offer an easy to use, secure and reliable collaboration platform that aggregates the critical collaboration features teams need to connect and be more productive. It's built for organizations of all sizes that want enterprise-ready video communications technology without taxing budgets or IT," said Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize. "We highly appreciate this international recognition as it validates our unique and innovative approach of combining software and hardware into one intuitive solution."
Best in Biz Awards' uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panel. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges each year. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of global opinion makers to determine award winners.
"I like the kind of thinking exhibited in the Product category entries," said Dominique Ziesemer, ARD. "Companies taking the next step to the future: getting better, not staying with what someone thinks is already perfect, ultimately thinking of making life or work better for the people using their products. That's why I like to judge in Best in Biz Awards -- it's a short view into the future."
Winners in the 4th annual international program were determined based on scoring from an international panel of judges from top-tier news, business, finance, and technology publications and media outlets from 15 countries and all continents. This year's judging panel included writers and contributors to such publications as ARD (Germany), Australian (Australia), Bennett Business Connections (Canada), Computer Hoy (Spain), CTV (Canada), Gamers Intuition (United States), HT Mobile (Israel), IAA Magazine (United Arab Emirates), InBusiness (Cyprus and Greece), Irish Independent (Ireland), J Arnold & Associates (Canada), Khaleej Times (United Arab Emirates), PC Format (United Kingdom), PC Pro (United Kingdom), Radio Ngati Porou (New Zealand), Ventures Africa and Enterprise54.com (Nigeria), Vyapar (India) and Wirausaha & Keuangan (Indonesia).
