  • Technology Development’ 

 BoardPAC, the Sri Lankan multinational software developer, won the Gold for ‘Innovation in Technology Development’ at the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards for its award-winning iPad-enabled paperless board communication and meetings solution, bringing further recognition to the country’s capabilities in this sphere. 

The prestigious award was accepted by BoardPAC Director and CEO Lakmini Wijesundera, with Chief Operating Officer Rajitha Kuruppumulle at the awards gala held in Hong Kong on 1 June. The Stevie awards recognise innovation in all forms in organisations in the Asia-Pacific region. 

The Gold was awarded to BoardPAC after a stringent assessment by some of the world’s most respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators. Notably, the judging process harnesses the insight and expertise of more than 200 judges annually. They evaluate the quality and usefulness of the innovation of each entry and rate it on a scale of one to 10. The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners are finally determined on the average scores of the judges.

Commenting on this achievement, Wijesundera said: “The BoardPAC software was developed as an innovative, efficient and highly secure platform that eliminates paper and facilitates decision-making within boardrooms; a tool that transforms how information is shared and used. To be recognised as the best in this category in a huge region is an extremely valuable endorsement for the company and its employees.”

“BoardPAC has competed with giants in ICT in the Asia Pacific region and emerged a winner,” Kuruppumulle added. “To have achieved this recognition for a Sri Lanka-developed software solution brings global attention to the potential for our country to be a major force in innovation, and motivates us to continue to push the boundaries in our field.”

The Stevie Awards are the world’s premier business awards. They were created in 2002 to honour and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organisations and working professionals worldwide. Its Asia-Pacific Awards are open to all organisations in all countries of the region.
