Thrive’s Platform recognized as a strategic business IT transformation solution

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – May 11, 2021 – Thrive has been named a winner of the Gold Stevie® Award in the Best Technical Support Solution – Computer Technologies category for the 19th Annual American Business Awards®.

The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards. There are eight Stevie Awards programs, each with its own focus, list of categories, and schedule, including The American Business Awards®, which invites all organizations operating in the U.S. to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration. The winners were determined by more than 250 professionals worldwide.

Thrive was nominated in the Best Technical Support Solution – Computer Technologies category for its Thrive Platform, a unique NextGen IT service delivery and account management platform that guarantees continuous application and performance availability while eliminating IT concerns regarding security, compliance, governance, reliability and scalability.

“We are honored to receive the Gold Stevie Award and want to congratulate all of this year’s winners,” said Rob Stephenson, CEO of Thrive. “Thrive is transforming IT service management for enterprises operating with a remote workforce. Our platform enables businesses to address their IT concerns in one place with the ability to access the portal on any device from anywhere with overall faster service delivery.”

Within the last six months, businesses using the Thrive Platform experienced a 15% increase in end-user productivity, a 25% faster support resolution on complex cases, a 95% reduction in overall delivery time, and a 25% reduction in the client’s time spent on routine IT tasks.

Thrive’s efforts earned praise from the Stevie Awards judging panel:

  • “This is an inspirational story of business success. Keep up the good work!”
  • “Overall nice support strategy to transform how IT can be done in today’s remote environment where human resources are remote.”
  • “Thrive’s software is really great for the SMB segment for bigger companies they can integrate with ServiceNow themselves.”
  • “For all those with custom workflows and easy to follow directions Thrive Platform makes life easier.”
  • “This product is very important when everyone is working from home, making IT support even more valuable.”

“The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we’re poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations in The American Business Awards are testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people.  We look forward to celebrating this year’s winners during our virtual ceremony on June 30.”
