Relay Named IT Innovator of Excellence at 20th Annual Enterprise Awards
Company Recognized as Technology Leader With Innovative Approach to Optimizing Business and Customer Interactions at the Mobile Device
RADNOR, PA– May 13, 2013 — Relay (www.relaynetwork.com), a market leading mobile platform that facilitates private interactions between businesses and consumers, is proud to announce its recognition as IT Innovator of Excellence by the Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT). The IT Innovator of Excellence category honors technology leaders who have applied new or existing technology in a unique or innovative way to solve a business problem or advance business goals. The award was presented at the 20th Annual Enterprise Awards, the region’s distinctive event honoring individuals and companies that are pace-setters in innovation, leadership and advances in technology and related fields.
Key considerations leading to Relay’s selection for the award included demonstrated success in applying and integrating new or next-generation technology in a unique or innovative way, and the impact and important contributions the solution made to customers, its industry and the community it serves.
“This has been an amazing time of growth for Relay and we’re honored to be named as IT Innovator of Excellence by PACT,” said Matt Gillin, Relay CEO and co-founder. “This award recognizes not only the value our solution delivers, but also the strength of the amazing team behind that unique solution.”
This award follows recent recognition of two Relay executives by top local media outlets. In March, Gillin was included in The Philadelphia Inquirer’s top 10 list of Philly’s Most Innovative Entrepreneurs and just last week, Relay’s Head of Technology, Kyle Burton, received the Top IT Pro Award from the Philadelphia Business Journal in the Start up Tech Star category.
