The Best SME ICT Award comprises three award streams:
- The Best SME ICT (Adoption) Award
- The Best SME ICT (Product) Award
- The Best SME ICT (Social Media Marketing) Award
The Best SME ICT (Adoption) Award targets to those local SME end-user companies successfully adopting innovative and effective ICT solutions for enhancing their business efficiency and productivity. The Organiser well encourages a joint application from a SME end-user company and its local ICT supplier in order to recognise business success fostered by the joint efforts. It aims to inspire the business community towards more adoption of ICT solutions from local ICT companies.
The Best SME ICT (Product) Award targets to local SME ICT companies successfully delivering innovative and effective ICT solutions to large and/or small end-user companies. It aims to recognise local SME ICT companies in developing or implementing innovative ICT products or services in Hong Kong, and thus enabling creative application of technology in the ICT industry.
The Best SME ICT (Social Media Marketing) Award targets to local SME companies successfully making use of social media platforms and tools in marketing, collaborating and doing business. The focal point is on how to take advantage of the rival effect and the easy user engagement of social media. The Organiser well encourages a joint application from a SME end-user company and its local ICT consultant in order to recognise the business success by the joint efforts and in this emerging platform.
For each award stream, there could be Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Upon recommendation by the assessment team, Certificates of Merit may also be presented. The decision on whether all the awards on each award stream presented will rest solely with the Judging Panel.
