September 24, 2018

NAPLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--ASG Technologies today announced the winners of its inaugural Excellence Awards, naming Accenture as “Partner of the Year” and Citi as “Innovator of the Year.” Accenture and Citi were recognized for their innovative use of ASG’s solutions to shape the future of the Information Economy with their innovative and mission-critical projects.

ASG evaluated Partner of the Year candidates based on nominees’ efforts to extend and enhance ASG’s unique go-to-market strategy and the offerings they have developed around ASG’s products. Accenture, a leading global professional services company, is working with ASG on many customer engagements and recently launched its “Data Lineage-as-a-Service” offering. With many trained resources, Accenture leads all ASG alliance partners with its sales and technical skills. Accenture has proactively uncovered many new applications for ASG’s Data Intelligence solution, which enables organizations to automate complex data management activities while ensuring security and compliance.

“The tightening regulatory environment has created unprecedented difficulties for organizations as they try to glean insights from their data assets,” said Bob Doyle, North American data governance lead at Accenture. “At Accenture, we work closely with our clients to ensure they are able to gather these valuable insights without compromising compliance. ASG’s data lineage capabilities have been a key tool for us in this process, especially those in sensitive industries such as financial services, healthcare and insurance, where security is paramount.”

“ASG’s partner program is a pivotal component of the growth we’ve experienced,” said Wayne Monk, SVP of global alliances and channel sales at ASG. “The Excellence Awards have given us the opportunity to honor the great work of our alliance partners and recognize them for their innovation using our solutions. We look forward to seeing what additional problems our alliance partners will solve using our products.”

ASG’s Innovator of the Year Award highlights customers using ASG to power innovative projects. Nominations were assessed based on the project’s overall business impact, complexity, vision for the future and focus on digital transformation.

Citi was chosen as Innovator of the Year for its exemplary use of ASG’s Data Intelligence solution. With Data Intelligence, Citi has been able to enhance how it tracks, manages and synthesizes transaction and account data. As a result, the bank is operating more effectively, has a more complete view of data to deliver a better client experience and has been able to reduce the amount of time spent on manual processing, enabling the organization to become nimbler in an ever-changing regulatory environment.

“ASG’s solutions have been a key driver of many of our transformative projects,” said Mike Smith, SVP of data strategy and governance, U.S. Retail Banking at Citi. “We always want to ensure our data is protected and compliant. With ASG’s products, we have enhanced efficiency, compliance and security and are driving forward our digital transformation efforts to deliver the best experience for our customers.”

“Citi’s initiative is an impressive example of the innovative ways ASG’s customers use its solutions to solve complex challenges,” said Geoffrey Bock, principal at Bock & Company and an Excellence Awards judge with more than 30 years of industry experience. “With ASG’s solutions, customers can be sure they are delivering a top-notch experience without compromising end-to-end security and compliance.”

The Excellence Award winners will be recognized at ASG’s second annual customer and partner event, EVOLVE18, taking place Oct. 1-3 in Chicago. To learn more about EVOLVE18 or to register, please visit the event website and follow us on Twitter for updates using #ASGEVOLVE18.
