October 24, 2019 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) is thrilled to announce that Room Alert has been named ”Innovation Product of the Year” by the International Trade Council during their International Go Global Awards ceremony on October 23, 2019.
Now in its 31st year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor for business continuity plans. Room Alert is made in the USA and proactively monitors environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more. Room Alert is currently used in 186 of 196 countries by organizations ranging from thousands of small businesses to Boeing, Sprint, Microsoft, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, and many local governments.
The International Trade Council is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think-tank, and publisher founded in 1956 that is dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world of domestic and international trade.
Many business continuity plans include network and data monitoring that do not monitor environment factors that cause 30% of outages suffered by businesses. AVTECH’s Room Alert helps resolve this to provide users with peace of mind, knowing that the environment threats that can cause data loss and downtime are being proactively monitored for early detection, which will drastically reduce downtime and loss of revenue.
“Being recognized as a 2019 Go Global Award winner by the International Trade Council is truly an honor,” said Michael Sigourney, AVTECH Founder & CEO. “We’ve focused on the growing international market for the past decade by participating in multiple trade missions while also exhibiting at a number of regional shows to help expand our presence. Room Alert, the ITC’s Innovation Product of the Year, can currently be found protecting critical facilities in 186 of 196 countries, and that growth is directly attributable to our combined efforts with groups such as the International Trade Council.” Mr. Sigourney accepted the award at the Think Global Conference on AVTECH’s behalf, along with Anne Sigourney, AVTECH’s Chief Financial Officer.
