Eclipse Awards sponsors F5 Expo
by Toby Barazzuol on Wednesday Mar 31, 2010
Next week on April 7th, the inaugural F5 Expo takes over the Vancouver Convention Center for a full day of refreshing business strategies and amazing speakers. It’s billed as a business conference on changing technologies in the online space such as social media, search marketing, cloud computing, and future trends. It also features Malcolm Gladwell, the insightful author of cool books such as Outliers, Blink and The Tipping Point!
Eclipse Awards is proud to be the awards sponsor for the F5 Expo. In part because we’ve always respected the work that event organizer TechLinz has done to develop the Vancouver’s technology community, but also because we’ve always embraced technology as a fantastic tool to help deliver awards and recognition to our clients in creative and efficient ways.
At Eclipse, finding creative uses for technology has always been a driving force: we’ve created photo-realistic computer generated images to improve the presentation of our crystal awards, we’ve implemented a paperless system to provide all artwork proofs electronically, we’ve developed a personalized email notification system that keeps our clients updated on their order status, and created a back-end system that allows us to manage multiple project timelines to ensure critical on-time delivery (which we guarantee).
Our efforts were recognized in 2008 when DELL selected Eclipse Awards as one of Canada’s Top 10 Small Businesses that use technology to improve their customers’ experience.
In recent years, our investments in technology have freed up large amounts of company resources and time, and we now use these freed resources to pursue sustainability and greening initiatives that we wouldn’t normally be able to. I’m now able to contribute close to 20% of my time to community building initiatives such as developing Strathcona as Vancouver’s first Green Zone. Of course, many other resources are put back into developing new designs for green awards and crystal awards, while also finding ways to improve our client’s experience.
The goal of the F5 Expo is to help companies embrace emerging technologies and create refreshing new ways to look at business and how they create value. At Eclipse, we’re not a tech company, but we’ve used technology to elevate our performance and customer experience, while also reducing our environmental footprint and enabling us to pursue our social mission.
How will you find creative ways to use emerging technologies? Come to the F5 Expo and expose yourself to new thoughts, new people and new ideas!
