The IMCCA today announced the winners of this year’s Industry Impact Awards. Independent judges announced the honorees during an IMCCA webcast entitled “Collaboration Week – The Future of Work.” A nonprofit industry association, the IMCCA seeks to strengthen and grow the unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) category. The association bestowed awards in four categories: Integrators & Service Providers, Distributors & Miscellaneous Organizations, Hardware & Peripherals, and Collaboration Platform New Features.
Expert judges determined the winners independently and free from outside influence. Those judges included David Smith (Inflow Analysis), Irwin Lazar (Metrigy), Tim Banting (Omdia), Roopam Jain (Frost & Sullivan) and Dan Ferrisi of Commercial Integrator. At IMCCA’s request, the judges analyzed information supplied by the nominees and independently assessed each nomination’s merit.

Second, for the Distributors & Miscellaneous Organizations category, the winners were the following:
Third, in the Hardware & Peripherals category, the winners were as follows:
Fourth, for the Collaboration Platform New Features category, the winners were the following:
The Future of Work
One unifying theme tied together all the categories and honorees: Namely, these firms, products and features help to bring us closer to the future of work. They exemplify the best of a new model of working that is centered on robust collaboration, as well as equity and inclusion for all.
David Danto, Director of Emerging Technologies at IMCCA, emceed the webcast. The two-hour program featured panel discussions involving UC&C thought leaders talking about everything from successful remote working to the new enterprise office. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the event to occur virtually rather than in-person. Commercial Integrator’s own Amala Reddie will recap the entire webcast in our January 2022 edition.
