Formerly the TM Forum Excellence Awards, the Digital World Awards program honors global service and solution providers within the TM Forum’s member community that are making significant contributions to advance critical best practices and standards for the benefit of entire industries and digital ecosystems.

Vlocity is being recognized for its work with Salesforce, the world’s leading CRM company, and MATRIXX Software, a leader in digital commerce, to transform the telco industry by improving Communications Service Provider (CSP) business agility, and enabling increased customer centricity with Go Digital™, an innovative, cloud-based solution.

Vlocity was recently named a winner by CRM Watchlist 2016 and its Vlocity Communications application was recognized by CRN as the most downloaded communications industry partner application on the Salesforce AppExchange. 

“This recognition underscores the incredible demand for digital cloud solutions that address the unique needs of telecom service providers and their customers,” said Dan Ford, General Manager of Vlocity Communications. “Vlocity’s communications-specific cloud applications enable telco providers to advance a customer-centricity agenda across all their markets and products, with less cost and deployment time than traditional legacy solutions.
