March 24, 2020 (Saskatoon, CANADA) – At an unprecedented time of digital need, Vendasta is proud to receive the Localogy Excellence Award for Best Local Marketplace.
A total of eight industry awards were announced Tuesday by Localogy, formerly the Local Search Association (LSA), which is a not-for-profit trade association of technology, marketing, and media service providers and multi-location brands that help small businesses thrive in an increasingly localized world.
The inaugural awards were to be announced on the final day of Localogy’s annual event – Localogy 20/20 – but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Given the current global environment, we are happy to share a bit of good news with the announcement of our 2020 award winners. These organizations continue to innovate, pivot, and innovate again on their way to capturing the category, the marketplace, and the future of localization,” said Bill Dinan, CEO of Localogy.
“For the past three years, the Vendasta Marketplace has continued to offer market quality software and marketing solutions under one roof,” said Dinan. “Never content with standing still, the company is always extending the ecosystem of solutions to include new and emerging SMB SaaS technologies.”
“Local businesses are working very hard to find a new sense of normal in the current economic climate, and they’re leaning on digital experts in their community to help them adjust quickly,” said Vendasta Executive Vice President Ed O’Keefe. “There are a lot of unknowns, but it’s clear more than ever that businesses need their digital solutions under one roof, and they need local experts to help.”
“We’re continuing to expand in category and depth to offer more quality solutions than ever before for our partners to offer in this time of need. We will continue to meet this need – one that’s more critical than ever right now,” said O’Keefe.
