Following the announcement of its Everyday Hero finalists back in July, ECi has now revealed the winner, breaking the news at its biennial user conference Connect 2018.
ECi Software Solutions has announced that Christine Cox of ComDoc, Inc. was named the 2018 Everyday Hero Award Winner for her dedicated volunteer work with The Haven of Rest and Broken Chains Ministry, providing women in-need with mentorship and support to improve the trajectory of their lives. Cox was honoured at ECi’s biennial user conference, Connect 2018, which took place from 5-7 November 2018 in New Orleans.
Now in its fourth year, the Everyday Hero Award program was created to honour ECi customers—both individuals and companies—who consistently go above and beyond to help others and make a difference in their communities.
Nominations are submitted by ECi employees, customers and partners and evaluated by an independent panel of judges. Cox was awarded $5,000 (€4,406) for her charities, while runners-up Angie Higgins of B&C Business Products and Mike Rhodes of Esperanza Homes each received $3,000 (€2,643) and $1,000 (€881) respectively for their charities.
In addition to recognising this year’s Everyday Hero honourees, ECi also presented six customer awards to its MarkSystems ERP user base at its 2018 event:
Outside of honouring award winners, ECi Connect 2018 also featured keynote speaker Daymond John, star of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning TV series Shark Tank. John addressed ECi’s more than 1,000 customer attendees—who hailed from small to medium-sized businesses across the globe—offering anecdotal entrepreneurship advice and his five shark points for success. Conference goers also heard from ECi CEO Ron Books and President and COO Trevor Gruenewald for an update on the company’s continued growth and insight on the trends impacting its users’ industries, such as digital transformation, AI (artificial intelligence), IoT (internet of things) and security.
“This was undoubtedly our most successful Connect conference yet, and that’s all thanks to the support of our entrepreneurial and innovative customer base,” said Books. “The team at ECi extends heartfelt congratulations to Christine for her inspiring work outside of ComDoc, Inc., and to all of this year’s Everyday Hero Award nominees. It is a true honour to spend time with our customers one-on-one during our user conference and even more of a privilege to be able to recognise them for their contributions to their communities with our awards program.”
