[CINCINNATI, OH] June 4, 2021 – Benchmark Digital Partners (formerly Gensuite LLC) was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Most Valuable Technical Innovation for Covid-19 Response category in the 19th Annual American Business Awards® today.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program.  All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.  Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, June 30.  Tickets for the virtual event are now on sale.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Virtual Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.  Benchmark Digital Partners was nominated in the Covid-19 Response category for Most Valuable Technical Innovation.

Benchmark created the Pandemic Risk Management module in response to the challenges faced by organizations in managing and mitigating risks associated with Covid-19 in the workplace, to keep employees safe while maintaining business operations.  Tracking cases, contact tracing, and return-to-work planning tools were built into the module, leveraging the Benchmark platform to quickly launch these solutions to their subscriber community in April of 2020.  Of the tools, one judge for the Stevie® Awards noted, “The Pandemic Risk Management solutions from Benchmark ESG are timely responses to the ongoing pandemic situation and have helped the organization to securely operate the mission-critical business. The quick collaboration and rollout while maintaining HIPAA, GDPR and other compliance requirements in check is a remarkable job.”

“Our Pandemic Risk Management tools were developed in collaboration with our subscriber community and we’re proud to share this award with them, as partners in our solutions and overarching platform.  Since the initial development, we’re continuing to expand our tools to meet the emerging needs & challenges of today and the future, geared toward Environmental, Social, and Governance priorities for the health, safety, and sustainability of workers, organizations, and the communities they operate.”  R. Mukund, Founder & CEO Benchmark Digital Partners.

“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.”
