CEO Yuval Brisker Recognized in Best of Tech Leader Category
CLEVELAND - May 29, 2009 - TOA Technologies, a leader in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for managing the mobile workforce, today announced that the Northeast Ohio Software Association (NEOSA) has awarded Yuval Brisker, CEO of TOA Technologies, with the Best of Tech Award. Brisker was recognized as Best of Tech Leader at a presentation dinner held Tuesday, May 19 at Corporate College East.
Awards were presented in seven categories including Best Tech Leader, Best Software product, Best IT Services Company, Best Emerging Company and others. Fourteen CEOs were nominated for Best of Tech Leader. NEOSA received approximately 70 nominations across all categories.
"The NEOSA Best of Tech Awards were created to showcase talent, innovation and leadership from the wealth of tech companies here in the greater Cleveland area,” said Brad Nellis, Director of NEOSA. “We’re proud that this year’s awards recognized truly outstanding products, exciting companies and inspiring leaders like Mr. Brisker.”
Yuval Brisker founded TOA in 2003 after he waited for a cable technician to show up for a service call. He realized that customers all over the world are stuck in this same dilemma - not knowing when -- or if -- a service person will show up and wasting hours and days and frustrated at the lack of information. He founded TOA Technologies to predict when an appointment will actually happen and then inform the customer, keeping them in the loop every step of the way, via a text message, an automated voice call, an email, or just letting the customer go online and track their service or delivery the way they would track a Fedex package.
NEOSA created the Best of Tech awards to honor outstanding companies and entrepreneurs in the Northeast Ohio region. NEOSA is a membership-based organization that promotes the advancement of the technology community and the information technology industry of Northeast Ohio. It is an industry-led, industry-driven organization made up of more than 880 member companies from all facets of information technology.
