Zeacom founder wins entrepreneur gong

Miles Valentine, who started Zeacom, has won this year's Technology category at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. The awards recognise entrepreneurs who created and developed innovative businesses that have been successful in their chosen markets. In their summary the award judges credited Valentine, who founded Zeacom in 1994, for keeping communication human. They point out that Zeacom started off creating a user-friendly call centre product that allowed businesses, ranging from small enterprises through to large corporations, to better handle enquiries and general points of contact. The judges state that Zeacom is now capturing the rapidly growing need for unified communications with its “flagship” Zeacom Communications Centre 5.0 system. “This system is a carefully-planned integration of all Zeacom’s products into one unified and integrated offer.” But the judges add that Zeacom’s success did not come just through the power of the software it developed, but also because of the passion and drive Valentine’s team put into their daily activities. Valentine and the four other category winners will compete for the overall title of Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, which will be announced at an award banquet on October 23. The New Zealand 2008 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year will then vie for the Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Monte Carlo in May 2009.
