The Flock Team is honoured to have been awarded with 2 trophies at the tt100 awards on the 14th of November, one for the Excellence in Management of innovation, and one for Sustainability for our digital platform and mobile event apps.
The awards are supported and sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology, the Da Vinci Institute, the Technology Innovation Agency, Innocentrix and Blank Canvas International, and prides itself on finding the best role models for innovation and technology.
Here is what the judges had to say:
“…They will delight any customer with their design excellence. What stood out for me about this organisation is the fact that the innovation filters through the entire value chain of the organisation so in other words they’ve identified a gap in the market, an opportunity, and they weighed how to solve it, and quite often in an organisation where people innovate, their purpose is not clear but in the case of this organisation you could see the innovation solved a specific problem. If one therefore looks at their approach to innovation, once it was implemented and available in the marketplace, they put in a lot of emphasis to scale the solution and reach out to more markets, therefore the innovation that they have applied was amplified to the next level, and we can only expect more from this organisation with this type of systemic and holistic approach to innovation management and people management.”
“… [The product was created] to network with like-minded attendees & to build interactive networks. The reason this product has been selected for sustainability is both its scalability and the unlimited clientele possibilities that it has value to the future.”
The tt100 Business Innovation Awards program was launched in 1991 to create an awareness of the role of technology and innovation in South Africa. Since then the program has evolved into one of the foremost business awards programs in South Africa.
The celebration of 28 years of Technology and Innovation Excellence has created new imperatives for tt100, concentrating on the following:
- A holistic business initiative
- Add value to all participants through education and coaching programs
- Creation of extensive business networking opportunities
- A variety of research and knowledge dissemination activities
- Foremost Business awards program in South Africa
We are happy to have been honoured and look forward to continuing our improvement for our eventing platform and mobile app. It is so good to be recognised for one of our systems biggest selling points in that it makes events much more sustainable. By keeping everything digitally for attendees and event managers, we help events cut down on paper usage, and there can even be more last minute changes after what would have been a 2 week print deadline!
