It was quadruple glory for Telstra at this week’s Frost & Sullivan 10th Australia Excellence Awards, with the telco adding four more awards to its haul from previous years.
The awards recognise ‘exemplary practices and best-in-class companies’ in Australia, across four markets, including ICT.
Telstra claimed awards for Australia Unified Communications Service Provider of the Year, Hosted Contact Centre service Provider of the Year and Telecom Service Provider of the Year in the ICT section. The company also took out the Australia Healthcare Telecommunications Company of the Year in the healthcare division.
Telstra has won several awards, every year over the past decade that the Frost & Sullivan Australia Excellence Awards have been running.
Mark Dougan, Frost & Sullivan Australia and New Zealand managing director, says Telstra’s consistent wins are not only ‘a distinction of excellence, but also of consistency and improvement of best practices’.
Dougan says the awards endeavour to identify and spotlight companies which have delivered excellence in their respective industries, as well as spur companies to continue pushing boundaries and share best practices.
The ICT section is the largest of the awards, with 17 awards presented. However, ICT companies also featured in other categories, with Schneider Electric winning both UPS Service Provider of the Year and UPS Vendor of the Year in the Energy and Environment section.
Frost & Sullivan says Telstra isn’t the only company to have received several awards over the years, with Airwatch, Amazon, Stellar, Verint and Verizon all repeat recipients.
