The talented workforce at Epic Lanka constantly contributes towards bringing a clear differentiation in customer satisfaction and product supremacy. All products nominated by Epic this year were developed to address a specific need in the market and cater to all segments of the socioeconomic pyramid.

NBQSA provides recognition to outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations in Sri Lanka who have developed high-quality ICT products. It delivers a window to gain international recognition for local ICT products and services, improve their quality to meet international standards while identifying the talents of local software architects, and provide them with an opportunity to develop their skills in ICT.
