Congratulations, 2023 Invoca Impact Award Winners!

Today is one of my favorite days of the year, a day on which we get to reflect on the phenomenal success of our customers and partners and announce winners of the Invoca Impact Awards. We had a record number of nominations and some of the most innovative use cases we’ve ever seen, so we had a lot of tough choices to make to narrow it down to these 11 winners! Let’s get this celebration kicked off!

The Rookie of the Year is a customer who has been live on Invoca for less than one year and realized a measurable and meaningful impact within a few months of going live.

The winner for Rookie of the Year is Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. They impressed us with how quickly they realized the value of connecting the phone channel to their paid media efforts and how quickly they expanded their use of Invoca to additional properties, providing to each location visibility into call outcomes, paid search efficacy, and conversion rates. Congratulations to Sara and team on an amazing first year, and a hat tip to the amazing finalists at COPART, Home Franchise Concepts, and Rentokil Terminix!

The Visionary of the Year makes the most of their investment through a strong vision and execution. They use Invoca’s AI technology in new and innovative ways to meet business objectives and transform their business, while also positively impacting the broader Invoca community.
