“I am impressed by the quality of entries in the Small or Medium Business Product of the Year category; from the smaller business to the most well-known technology firm,” said Ralph Jensen, Security Products Magazine, judging his first Best in Biz Awards competition. “It is evident to me that each company has poured their heart and soul into research and development of the individual product that not only makes their business model better, but takes the needs of the end user into account. The variety or technology products only proves to me that there are unlimited resources in those people who value technology as a service. –
