Mason, OH, April 14, 2021 – Benchmark Digital Partners (formerly Gensuite LLC) was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Innovative Achievement in Science or Technology category and a Silver Stevie® Award in the Award for the Innovation in Technology Department category in the second annual Middle East & North Africa Stevie Awards, sponsored by the RAK Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

The Middle East & North Africa Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize innovation in the workplace in 17 nations in the Middle East and North Africa.  The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world’s premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards® for 19 years.  Nicknamed the Stevie’s for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners during a virtual ceremony on 2 June 2021.

More than 400 nominations from organizations across the Middle East and North Africa were considered this year in categories such as Award for Excellence in Innovation in Products & Services, Award for Innovative Management, and Award for Innovation in Corporate Websites, among many others.

The Gold & Silver Stevie® Awards were given in recognition of the Benchmark ESG pSIF AI Advisor™.  Powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), the solution helps to prevent potentially serious injuries & fatalities (pSIF) by proactively identifying underlying risks and hazards directly correlated with serious injuries and fatalities.  The pSIF AI Advisor™ uses robust data insights to quickly and accurately identify pSIFs and expedite process-improvement measures to prevent future occurrences that could lead to harm.

“It’s definitely a huge honor for us to receive the Gold & Silver Stevie® Awards.  I am thrilled the jury recognized the potential & impact of the pSIF AI Advisor™, the latest innovation from the Benchmark TechLab, that helps our subscribers recognize & classify potentially serious injuries & incidents from reports logged by business users around the world. We look forward to sharing the impact of this innovation with the Middle East & North African businesses.”  Naveen, AAPAC & Global Development Officer

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 60 executives around the world acting as judges on six juries.

“We are delighted to recognize the achievements of such a diverse group of organizations across the MENA region in the 2021 edition of the Middle East & North Africa Stevie Awards,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “Despite the obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, these organizations show us that it is possible to innovate and succeed at any time, regardless of the challenges.  We look forward to celebrating them during our virtual ceremony on 2 June.”
