VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 9, 2013 /CNW/ - ACL, together with customer CHC Helicopter, has been selected as a finalist in the "Adoption of Technology" category for this year's BCTIA (British Columbia Technology Industry Association) Technology Impact Awards. ACL was chosen for the way its cloud-based GRC solution helped CHC Helicopter, the world's largest helicopter services company, streamline its business processes and facilitate a more efficient global workflow.
The theme of the awards, 'BC's Mark on the World', recognizes finalists that are viewed as innovators in British Columbia across a wide range of technologies, including enterprise software, telecommunications, hardware, biotechnology, and nanotechnology.
As one of only two finalists in the category, ACL technology enabled CHC's global internal audit team to increase productivity by 15% and cut software costs by 60%. CHC has also realized the following benefits:
- Global teamwork through enhanced interaction among CHC's workforce of 4,300 people in 30 countries
- Mobile working on-the-go with native mobile capability
- Click-of-a-button reporting via standardized, automated audit reports
- Quicker workflow and less email, as all communications are now contained within ACL technology
- Reliable, cloud-based availability
- Secure collaboration with external stakeholders who have responded enthusiastically to the new technology
"Congratulations to ACL and CHC Helicopter on their successful collaboration," said Bill Tam, President and CEO of BCTIA. "It clearly demonstrates that forging a home-team advantage and adopting local technology solutions can deliver significant impact for global organizations like CHC."
Winners will be announced at the 20th Anniversary of the Technology Impact Awards, to be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre—West Building on June 6th.
