Information Technology Innovation Award
Has your company recently introduced a new technology that has streamlined your business operations? Are your practices more cost‐effective due to improved and faster processes? Has your company contributed to the adaption of modern agricultural techniques due to a new computer program or app? Is social media a part of customer outreach, and how has it helped grow your business?
CropLife America (CLA) wants to hear from you! We encourage you to submit a story about how your business used a new technology that improved operations – and your bottom line – as part of the second annual CLA Information Technology Innovation Award.
Sponsored by CLA and AgGateway, the award identifies an outstanding company or organization that has embraced new technologies and benefitted as a result, whether it be improved business processes, increased profitability or cost‐effective savings, or improved customer/supplier relations. The award is open to CLA members only.
Companies wishing to submit an application should provide the following for review:
- A short information/application form (located above)
- A narrative not to exceed two double-spaced pages, which describes the company’s new e-business initiatives.
The criteria for receiving an award include novelty of approach, execution of the program, benefits of the technology, and ability to determine results (i.e. of a tangible nature).
Finalists will be selected by representatives from CLA and AgGateway. The winners will be recognized at CLA’s Annual Meeting in September, taking place September 23-26 at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, in Amelia Island, Florida.
Please submit the completed attached form and narrative by August 29, 2012 to CLA. If you have questions about the program, contact Mary Emma Young at CLA at (202) 872-3864 or email to email@example.com.
