The Customer Value Enhancement Award is presented each year to the company that has best demonstrated the ability to expand its customer base, while maintaining its existing install base, with more innovative value creation and enhancement strategies than competing vendors. This Award recognizes the company's successful sales entry, customer acquisition and service strategies, and the degree to which those strategies have met customers' stated needs and requirements.

"We select companies that demonstrate best practices in a variety of regional and global markets, as well as a host of other crucial marketing factors such as leadership, strategy, service, innovation, integration and development.
