Melbourne, Australia, September 15, 2020 - Beam Communications Pty Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Beam Communications Holdings Limited (ASX: BCC) is pleased to announce that the ZOLEO global messaging solution has just won the ACOMM 2020 award in the Innovation – SME category.
The award is organised by the Communications Alliance, which is the primary telecommunications industry body in Australia.
The 14th Annual Communications Alliance ACOMM Awards was held virtually on 10 September, featuring keynote addresses from the Federal Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, The Hon. Paul Fletcher MP and the Shadow Minister for Communications, Michelle Rowland MP.
This is the second industry award bestowed upon the Beam-designed and engineered device. In March this year, ZOLEO took out the 2020 Top Mobility User Experience Innovation Award granted by the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA).
In 2018, Beam formed a joint venture with Canada-based Roadpost Inc. to launch a global low-cost pocket-sized messaging device that automatically switches between satellite, mobile and Wi-Fi networks.
“It is very pleasing to see that the ZOLEO solution is garnering strong recognition from world-leading industry bodies around the world,” said Beam’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Capocchi.
“This supports the positive feedback we have received from users and from expert reviewers since we officially launched the device in January this year, with ZOLEO now being sold through major retailers in both North America and Australia. We plan to start selling ZOLEO in more countries over the next 12-months.”
