Another Victory for the Innovative Company

MONTEREY, CALIF., Dec. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LanguageLine Solutions has been named a Silver winner as Most Innovative Company of the Year in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

The fifth annual program in North America received more than 600 entries from public and private companies of all sizes, industries, and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada, the highest number of submissions to date.

LanguageLine Solutions won Silver in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category in recognition of the company's latest innovative solutions:

This multi-channel by design platform connects more than 8,000 linguists, located in multiple call centers and thousands of remote locations throughout the world, enabling communication between English speakers and Limited English Proficient (LEP) persons in more than 200 languages.
  • eLanguage Proficiency Test (eLPT), our award-winning web-based test that easily assesses and rates language fluency and competency in staff and candidates for hire.
  • LanguageUc® our one-touch, app-based, video remote interpreting (VRI) solution.

With the recent transition to Olympus, our game-changing language access platform, we will redefine on-demand language delivery. We remain committed to transforming the language services industry by delivering cutting edge solutions to enable communication and empower relationships," stated Scott W.

"What struck me most about this year's entries in the Best in Biz Awards were the businesses that — brand names or not, long-established players or even more recently birthed organizations — continue to grapple with how to best reinvent themselves, and by doing so best tap the latest technology possibilities and capabilities for better attracting, retaining and serving their customers."
