“Partner’s Choice” Designation Bestowed on Vendors in 89 Categories
LAKE ELSINORE, CA – February 11, 2015 – Telecom Association, a membership organization of 3,800 ICT professionals founded in 1996 today announce their "Partners Choice", "Top 5" and "Top 10" award winners in 89 ICT solutions categories. The awards are based on validated TA review forms received from partners and customers of solution vendors during the calendar year, industry publications and the analysis of subject matter expert interviews.
"I want to personally thank the 800+ partners who shared their personal opinions with us throughout 2014 and trusted us to interview their customers so we could determine the identity the top solution vendors in each category," stated TA Executive Director Dan Baldwin. "By helping us administer our annual awards program by submitting TA review forms, our members are ensuring that TA can continue with our mission of helping our members 'Get the Best From the Best" for their customers."
TA's annual award program began in 2006 and for the first five years winners were based strictly on popular vote of TA's members without any sort of vote validation other than to ensure the voter was indeed a working telecom agent. In 2012, TA converted the awards judging from popular vote to partner and customer review tempered with industry publications and subject matter expert interview.
"Upgrading the judging in 2012 helped maintain the value of our awards results," Baldwin stated. "While popular vote worked fine for the first five years, our results are now determined by 'weighted input' such that $50,000 vendor selection decisions by our members and their customers count a great deal more than a $100 decision."
TA members who are subject matter experts in any of our award categories are encouraged to help TA validate 2015 TA review forms. To assist with TA's 2015 TA Awards winner selections please contact Dan Baldwin at Dan@TelecomAssociation.com.
