Breaking news: Clintelica has just won Logica’s Swedish Innovation Contest!
It’s true, we have won Innovation prizes before and we really hope to win many more in the months to come, but coming first in Logica’s Swedish Contest, one of the rounds of Logica’s Global Innovation Venture Partner Programme, is the kind of tipping point milestone for the history books.
Who is Logica?
Logica is a business and technology service company which has just been acquired by CGI. Together they have more than 72.000 employees in 40 countries. Logica provides business consulting, systems integration and outsourcing to clients around the world, and it finds ways to create value for clients by integrating people, businesses and technology.
What is the Global Innovation Venture Programme?
In a nutshell, the GIVP is Logica’s search for the business with the most innovative products and solution. For the fifth year in a row, Logica has opened its doors to companies from UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, India, Norway, Spain, Morocco, in order to partner with the world’s most forward thinking enterprises. It just so happens that in 2012, Clintelica ended up in the spotlight and won the first prize in Sweden. The nominated companies have been judged by a Logica panel of experts. The judges have looked for the “originality of the product, the potential of the idea and whether it is aligned to Logica’s client needs”.
Why is this award a tipping point in Clintelica’s life?
Because of the size and scope of the programme. For Clintelica, this means the realization of a very important strategic partnership and the open road to the big competition in London, on September 11. We will now be able to access a wider audience through Logica’s global sales resources, go-to-market support and we will have opportunities to engage with client organizations where appropriate. More than this, Clintelica will most likely become a Logica suggested solution, added to its Portfolio Catalogue. In the words of Andrei Postoaca, CEO @ Clintelica:
We are very proud to have won this year’s competition and we see tremendous potential working with Logica in the future to change the way marketing is done today. I am confident that with Logica’s technical excellence and our unique way to generate leads we will be able to change for the better the way companies around the world approach CRM systems.
As for Logica, the partnership with Clintelica will add the most innovative and efficient sales increase solutions to an already well proven technology package concerning cost efficiency. This is what Johan Tullberg, VP of Business Development at Logica Sweden, had to say:
The competition is an important component to find new partners who are as committed to innovation as we are. This year we have been able to expand the number of participating countries, which testifies to the success of the competition. That’s why it is very exciting for us to announce Clintelica as this year’s winner, with their innovative service for lead generation. It will be a very strong Swedish contribution to the international finals in London, come September 11.
