Carma Honored with Three Prestigious Innovation Awards

Carma recognized for innovation in OSS, BSS, and Customer Experience

 November 19, 2020 – Denver, CO Carma today announced that it has been selected as a Runner Up in the three different categories of the 2020 Pipeline Innovation Awards.

For nearly a decade, the annual Pipeline Innovation Awards have provided the most credible recognition of technical innovation in the industry.   Each year, the Innovation Awards program receives hundreds of nominations which are distilled to a select number of semi-finalists, who compete across 10 categories of technical innovation. Semi-finalists submit extensive evaluation information to validate their innovation, which is objectively scored across over 20 different aspects of technical innovation. This information is provided to an esteemed judging panel consisting of key executives who leverage like technology to advance the way we work, live, and communicate as a connected, global community.  The Judges exclusively select the two most innovative competitors in each category. Carma is honored to receive awards in three categories this year.

According to Frank McDermott, CEO of Carma, “This was the first time we submitted Carma for an industry award evaluation, and we are thrilled to take home multiple awards and to have competed so well amongst long established companies. We will be even hungrier for the 2021 Innovation Awards, which will showcase the speed at which we have expanded on the Carma platform since our 2020 package was submitted.”

"The Pipeline Innovation Awards have continually recognized the leading innovators that are transforming the industry, and the world, with the most significant technical advancements," said Scott St. John, managing editor of Pipeline. "We are happy to see Carma recognized by the esteemed judges for their innovations in OSS, BSS and Customer Experience in the 2020 Pipeline Innovation Awards program and applaud their advancements and contributions to the progress of the global landscape.”
