Exton, PA, USA – 02 October, 2020 – BTL Surpass Inc. was named as the winner of Gold and Silver Stevie® Awards in the 17th Annual International Business Awards®.

BTL Surpass was named as the Gold Award winner in the ‘Student Assessment Solution’ category, for its premier cloud-based assessment platform, Surpass, with a submission that focused on innovative task management functionality, and the recording of audio responses for real-world testing scenarios.

A Silver Award was achieved in the ‘Product Development/Management Department or Team of the Year’ category. Winning this award is a testament to the hard work and collaboration of the dedicated and passionate Surpass Product Management team, in working alongside the community to produce market-leading assessment technology.

On winning the awards, John McGrath, Chief Product Officer said:

I’m delighted that the Surpass Product Management Team has been recognised with this award. As Chief Product Officer I am so proud of the team and their hard work and creativity which shines through in the quality of work they produce, but also in the way they work together. Our community has evolving requirements, which can change quite rapidly, and only with a strong, resilient, and flexible team is it possible to meet and exceed the expectations of the community time after time. The team come from a variety of backgrounds, which creates an amazing team dynamic. Every single team member is passionate about improving the assessment experience for everyone, and they are a pivotal team within our organisation in the creation of an awarding-winning product.’

Andy McAnulla, President of BTL Surpass added:

‘These International Business Awards are a fantastic reflection of our successful collaboration with the assessment community to create the best technology and services on the market. To win these additional awards following our success at both the American Business Awards earlier this year, and the Queens Award for Enterprise is a great achievement.  I’m especially proud of our Product Management team, and colleagues around the business that support the product management function, as without their dedication to our assessment platform (Surpass) and our customers, winning awards like this simply would not be possible. Surpass receives a lot of interest from awarding and certification bodies around the world, and these awards are a testament to not only the quality of the product, but a recognition of the exceptional team that drives the evolution of Surpass forward.’

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards programme. All individuals and organisations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2020 IBAs received entries from organisations in 63 nations and territories.

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.

The awards will virtually be presented to winners during a live event on 1st December.
