Elevate crowned Business Innovation of the Year at Surrey Business Awards


27th November 2019

Strategic Imperatives are delighted to announce that Elevate has been awarded Business Innovation of the Year at the Surrey Business Awards 2019.

Elevate, Strategic Imperatives’ award-winning billing solution, is redefining and challenging many of the outdated processes and legacy implementations that have plagued the telecoms sector. It addresses pain points that service providers have long accepted as unavoidable such as resolving ‘the first bill shock’, providing best in class user experience and streamlining the bill run process so that it can be completed in a matter of minutes rather than hours or even days.

Wail Sabbagh, Managing Director said, “We are a team of technologists, pooling our passion and talent to create solutions that shake up the industry. We thrive on creating original solutions that solve real pain points that have plagued service providers for years, and we are thrilled to have been recognised for Business Innovation.”

He added, “We have always taken pride in being a truly local-first company, committed to actively engaging and investing in the community in which we operate. Having won industry awards at a national and European level, receiving an award at the Surrey Business Awards is an achievement close to our hearts. As our business and team grow to the next level, we intend to continue strengthening our involvement within the Surrey business community and expanding our partnerships with local organisations. I would like to thank the judges for recognising the hard work of our team.”

The news follows a year of success for Strategic Imperatives at a variety of telecom industry awards. Elevate was recognised as the most innovative solution introduced in 2018/2019 by the UK Telecom Channel and was also highly commended in the international arena at European Software Excellence symposium. Strategic Imperatives recently announced that Elevate will be showcased alongside the best in Britain as part of the UK Innovation Pavilion at MWC20 in Barcelona in February.

The Surrey Business Awards were created to recognise hard-working local companies and celebrate their achievements. Winners were announced at an exclusive awards ceremony held at Epsom Downs Racecourse on 21st November.
