LOS ANGELES, December 10, 2020 – Broadvoice®, an award-winning provider of hosted voice, unified communications (UC), and SIP trunking services for businesses, has been named to Inc.’s inaugural Best in Business list in the Telecom category. Inc. created the Best in Business Awards to honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. (on newsstands December 29, 2020), recognizes small and medium privately held American businesses that have had a superlative impact on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
“It’s been an incredibly challenging year for companies. Across industries, businesses have had to make brutally tough decisions and face unprecedented uncertainty,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “That’s why we knew 2020 called for a new recognition program, something to complement our annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. For Best in Business, companies have prioritized tackling today’s problems to lead us to a better future, even if they’ve struggled to stay in the black.”
Instead of relying on quantitative criteria linked to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 30 different industries — health, software, retail, business services, and more — and in age- and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was very competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits — a huge success for these honors in their inaugural year.
Broadvoice was recognized for supporting America’s small businesses impacted by Covid-19 to stay connected with customers and employees with cloud-based communications systems as well as more than $1 million in credits and payment deferments.
“Our team worked hard to help businesses navigate the unexpected challenges of the pandemic through our technology and service experience and continued commitment to our small business customers,” said Jim Murphy, CEO at Broadvoice. “It is an honor to be recognized for those efforts with the Inc.’s Best in Business Award.”
