BOXLIGHT DeskBoard Named As Finalist in 2015 American Business Awards

13th annual Stevie® Awards will be presented September 11 in San Francisco

Belfair, WA (May 11, 2015) BOXLIGHT, a global leader in developing and manufacturing award winning projectors, interactive flat panels, and classroom solutions, was named a Finalist in the 2015 American Business Awards for Best New Product of the Year in Education/Instructional Solutions for their ground-breaking interactive DeskBoard solution.

BOXLIGHT’s DeskBoard is a multipurpose interactive classroom solution that can be used as an interactive desk surface or raised and tilted to use as an interactive touch screen. The DeskBoard features multi-finger touch – enabling up to ten individual and simultaneous finger or pen interaction points. A remote control operates the motorized height and tilt adjustments and the mobile cart allows for complete mobility of the DeskBoard. It is a complete mobile solution that can be wheeled from class to class and the height and tilt adjustments mean it can accommodate a wide range of students and activities.

“BOXLIGHT has always focused on the needs of our customers and has strived to innovate based on those needs. This is a prime example of a ground-breaking product that BOXLIGHT developed for our partners and customers,” says Sunshine Nance, Director Global Marketing & Communications. “When educators see the DeskBoard for the first time, it is a ‘jaw-dropper, gotta-have-it’ reaction. We are thrilled about being a finalist for the Best New Product of the Year for the American Business Awards – it is an absolute honor,” Nance concludes.

The American Business Awards are considered the nation’s preeminent business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA’s traditional banquet on Monday, June 22 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 11 in San Francisco.

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, finalists were chosen by scores of business professionals nationwide during first-round judging in April and May. Members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place later this month.

“So many fascinating and inspiring stories of success were submitted to the ABAs this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher. “We congratulate all of our 2015 Finalists on their achievements.”
