“Our judges recognized Avaya as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.
“We’re proud to be recognized as innovation leaders, being the first to take blockchain into the customer experience industry, building an ecosystem for partners to collaborate on innovative solutions, and integrating emerging technologies to solve real customer problems,” noted Laurent Philonenko, SVP and GM, Solutions and Technologies, Avaya. “With solutions like this, we’re putting our customers ahead of their peers in their industry.”
