BOXLIGHT honored as bronze STEVIE® Award Winner in 2015 American Business Awards
Winners in ABA’s New Product and Technology-Related Categories Announced in San Francisco
Belfair, WA (October 12, 2015) BOXLIGHT was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award for their DeskBoard, in the New Product of the Year for Education in The 13th Annual American Business Awards.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier 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.
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.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 11 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, management awards, app awards, and more.
