AS a testament to its pioneering efforts in the export of IT services, 99X Technology was awarded Gold in the Business and Professional Services category of the National Chamber of Exporters’ Export Awards 2017.
Through this annual assessment the Chamber seeks to recognise Sri Lankan export entities that have excelled in export performance and have contributed to the national economy through foreign exchange earnings.
“As a forerunner in Sri Lanka’s IT industry, we strive to innovate and truly make a mark in the global marketplace with our software solutions that we now export to Europe, the US and Australasia. To have our efforts recognised by an esteemed body such as the National Chamber of Exporters is immense encouragement and we hope to further enrich the country through greater export earnings in the years to come,” said 99X Technology Co-Founder and CEO Mano Sekaram.
This year marks the third time in which 99X Technology has won Gold in this category, having previously been awarded Gold in 2012 and 2014. The National Chamber of Commerce too felicitated 99X Technology at its National Business Excellence Awards last year in recognition of its excellence in business and contributions towards the economic progress of the country.
