Parliant wins Macworld’s Eddy Award for 2006
December 12, 2006
Ottawa-based Parliant Corp. has just won Macworld’s 2006 Editor’s Choice Award (the Eddy) for PhoneValet Message Center. This award, for the best Mac products the world has to offer, has previously been given to products like the iPod nano, Flickr and Skype.
With this win, Parliant proves a small, Internet-enabled “four guys and a Web site” business can win on a global stage: Before the company started building its telephony product, it built a systems infrastructure that automated e-commerce, customer service and support. Parliant also outsources manufacturing, marketing and order fulfillment.
