BusinessEdge Solutions Inc., an innovative industry-focused business and technology consulting and integration firm offering operational strategy, business process and system integration solutions to clients in the communications, life sciences, financial services and insurance industries, has been named as Best Overall Company finalist in the third annual American Business AwardsSM, the first all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace.

East Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) May 10, 2005 -- BusinessEdge Solutions Inc., an innovative industry-focused business and technology consulting and integration firm offering operational strategy, business process and system integration solutions to clients in the communications, life sciences, financial services and insurance industries, has been named as Best Overall Company finalist in the third annual American Business AwardsSM, the first all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace.

As a finalist, BusinessEdge will be eligible to receive the Stevie AwardTM, nicknamed for the Greek word “crowned” and hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” by the New York Post (September 22, 2002).

BusinessEdge has experienced incredible growth since its 1999 founding by four experienced entrepreneurs who had worked together to successfully build businesses over the past 25 years. The company, which has a broad, deep U.S. industry focus, rapidly developed a reputation for delivering high quality services. Leveraging the strong expertise and knowledge base of its workforce, it created Velocity Platforms, visualizations of breakthrough business solutions, and developed Reusable Solution Accelerators (RSAs), the repeatable solutions that jump-start projects and foster collaboration among the BusinessEdge teams.

Overall, it is this asset-leveraged model that has created what industry observers call an industry first, technology second mentality that makes BusinessEdge a high expertise integration firm that has experienced significant success and holds a differentiated position in the business services marketplace.

“Celebrating the achievement and raising the profile of exemplary companies and individuals among the press, the business community, and the general public was our motivation for initiating the American Business Awards program in 2002,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. “The increasing popularity of the program and the recognition that companies and their employees say it has brought to them demonstrates repeatedly that we are delivering on our mission. Congratulations and continued best wishes to the 2005 finalists.”

This year more than 1,200 nominations were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories including Bests Overall Company, Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program and Best Human Resources Organization. In April-May 2005, members of the Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and other select business leaders will perform the final judging.

The Stevie Award, which was designed by R.S. Owens, the same company that makes the Oscar®, Emmy, and Clio Awards, will be presented to winners at a gala dinner on Monday, June 6, at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. The ceremonies will be broadcast live, worldwide, on the Internet by Speedera Networks and on radio in the United States by the Business Talk Radio Network. American business icon Donald J. Trump will receive the first-ever Lifetime Achievement Stevie Award at this year's ceremony, which be hosted by Ali Velshi, host of the TurnAround on CNN.

“We are pleased to be a finalist in the American Business Awards and honored along side companies such as TIBCO Software, Nextel Communications Inc. and Staples,” said Manny Arturi, BusinessEdge CEO. “The success of BusinessEdge is based on a winning combination of strategy, process, and human capital. Our participation in the ABA acknowledges the phenomenal delivery of talent in the industries we serve.”
