Alacrity Technologies has won the National award for Communications at the iAwards in Melbourne.
The Australian-based company claimed the accolade for its patented CLEW (Closed Loop for Wireless) technology, which enables secure, interactive communication and transactions on mobiles devices.
With clients including Government, retail and insurance services, the technology is used in securing and enabling mobile transactions across a broad range of m-Commerce applications such as mobile banking, mobile marketing and field staff mobilisation.
Alacrity says CLEW overcomes the security issues where sensitive information or applications are resident on the mobile device while representing the evolution of SMS messaging into a fully interactive business communication tool.
Judged by the industry, for the industry, the iAwards evaluates technology innovations across a number of disciplines for their uniqueness, marketability, functionality and quality.
”We are extremely pleased with the peer recognition we have received with the receipt of this National award," says Adrian Tatham, Alacrity Technologies CEO.
"It is particularly gratifying after last year’s R&D award, and reflects our progress through to the commercialisation phase. Many elements of the m-Commerce landscape appear to be aligning in a way that gives us encouragement that this commercialisation phase will have some great outcomes."
Held at the Crown complex in Melbourne, other finalists in this category included Hauwei, Aarnet and TotalTel International.
