Last night the finalists for the 2010 NZ Hi-Tech Awards were announced and we are extremely proud to say that Litmos is among four companies who made it to the finals in the Innovative Service category! Just for making the finals we get that cool badge on the right that we can now use all over the place.
The next step from here is to present to a panel of International judges in about 2 weeks time, then the winners of each category will be announced at a gala dinner on the 7th of May. Here's a blurb from the Hi-Tech Awards website on what's in store for us:
"Finalists in most categories will now undergo face-to-face judging from a line up of local judges as well as being scrutinised by the global panel of international judges including Michael Dell, the founder of Dell computers, Howard Charney, senior vice president of Cisco, and Andy Lark (vice-president of global marketing at Dell). Pat Kenealy, who runs IDG Ventures, Richard Keyse, the chair of the NZTE Beachheads Europe, and Vernon Turner, senior vice president of IDC Research are also on the elite judging panel."
We're so excited to have the opportunity to introduce Litmos to such an all-star panel and know we have our work cut out getting ready for that presentation. Our goal has always been to create an intuitive, fresh and easy-to-navigate Learning Management System (LMS) that people really love to use. This is definitely a step in the right direction towards achieving that goal!
