Black Box's iCOMPEL system a finalist for 2010 Stevie Awards

Black Box Corp. announced that it has been named a finalist in the 2010 Stevie Awards for its iCOMPEL digital signage System.

The iCOMPEL DSS helps small businesses or government offices on small budgets effectively customize and use Black Box’s iCOMPEL player with little to no creative staff, the company says. Black Box will showcase iCOMPEL and the iCOMPEL digital signage System at InfoComm 2010 next week in Las Vegas.

Available to anyone with an Box’s iCOMPEL player, the new program gives budget-stretched administrators a more streamlined and cost-effective way to build visibility in today’s more competitive market, the company says. Following this year’s successful debut, the iCOMPEL digital signage System has earned finalist standing in the “New Product or Service of the Year” category for “Media & Entertainment” and will compete for the award at the annual gala.
For this year’s American Business Awards, more than 2,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year and Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program of the Year.

“Just earning finalist status serves as a validation that the work we’re doing with small businesses is helping them leverage the full potential of our iCOMPEL product,” said Brian Kutchma, director of marketing for Black Box. “It makes sense for businesses to differentiate themselves now more than ever, but you shouldn’t be hindered by a limited budget for in-house creative services.”

This year’s Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 21 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than six-hundred executives from across the United States are expected to attend. The event will benefit Oceana, the largest international organization focused on ocean conservation. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network.
