99X Technology hosted its annual awards night and gala - Blaze 2013 - to felicitate employees' achievements and the company's own accomplishments during the course of the year.

Colombo (I-Newswire) January 13, 2014 - 99X Technology places an unwavering emphasis on the development and advancement of its workforce, and in line with this, hosted its annual awards night and gala - Blaze 2013 - to felicitate employees' achievements and the company's own accomplishments during the course of the year. This was done with much fanfare in the presence of industry heads, members of the academia, company partners and employees and their spouses.

Held on 19 December at the Galadari, it was a night of much merriment and gaiety and a splendid time was had by all who attended, making it the ideal conclusion to yet another successful year by the company.

Awards given out included the Long Service Awards, Award for Most Outstanding Project Team and the much coveted CEO's Award, and many more employees, who collectively refer to themselves as 'Xians', were also recognised for their personal successes and milestones reached.

A special award, the Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contribution to the IT Ecosystem, was presented to IIT Dean and Associate Professor Alfred Perera in appreciation of his long-time service and vast contribution made to the Sri Lankan IT industry.

99X Technology Co-Founder and CEO Mano Sekaram, commenting on the past year while addressing the audience at the awards ceremony, stated: "A look back over the past year shows that we have achieved phenomenal growth. Despite recession in our primary market of Europe, we grew our business by 40 per cent, at a growth rate double that of the overall industry's growth."

He revealed that the company's revenue growth of 40 per cent had surpassed its workforce growth of 25 per cent. "This is a sign that we have surged up the value chain, with customers willing to pay a premium for our services. Furthermore, our continued positive financial performance has made us a totally debt free, 100% equity funded and very profitable company."

"I have truly been blessed to find men and women who are smarter than I am, and who have the passion and pride to execute the vision I have to perfection. Today, we have built a company that is admired and we are proud that through our efforts, we have been able to make a positive contribution to all our stakeholders," he added.

In 2013, 99X Technology was ranked among the 15 Great Places To Work For in Sri Lanka, a testament to its best practices and attention towards the progression of its human capital. In the independent study conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the first of its kind conducted in Sri Lanka, 99X Technology scored an overall 92% in contrast to the global benchmark figure of 89. In addition to this, the company also cinched an award for talent management at the fourth Asia's Best Employer Brand Awards in Singapore, a dual recognition of its focus on its workforce.

99X Technology also triumphed at the National Best Quality ICT Awards (NBQSA) 2013, picking up a bronze award for 'WAG - Web Accessibility Guide' in the R&D category and a merit for the iPad app 'ALMUR' in the Tools and Infrastructure Applications category.
