ALEXANDRIA, VA (March 19, 2013) – IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program today announced Savi Technology as a 2013 Honors Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.
Savi was recognized as a Laureate in the program’s economic development category. The category recognizes organizations for the innovative use or development of IT to create, enable, improve or expand business and job opportunities. Savi’s mobile tracking system technology has provided economic benefits to countries such as Ghana, Kenya and most recently Tanzania by helping prevent cargo being lost or diverted, and protecting customs revenues.
“Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements,” said John Amato, vice president & publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld is honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations’ ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper.”
“Far too often the technology market gets caught up in buzzwords, the hype, and the technology itself. What makes the Computerworld Honors Laureate so special is its dedicated focus on real-world benefits beyond the products,” said Bill Clark, President & CEO, Savi Technology. “Savi is proud to be recognized by Computerworld and to be counted among this year’s Honors Laureates.”
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
