Being its first time participating in the Awards, Immfly’s wireless solution received double recognition during the ceremony held at the 2016 APEX Expo in Singapore. Selected by a number of industry professionals, the Spanish company was announced finalist for the Best In-Flight Connectivity Innovation category, and additionally won The Newcomer of the Year Award, designed to recognize a unique achievement successfully implemented in the past year.
This year, with more than 100 qualified entries, the Apex Awards program expanded from two to eight categories to embrace the high number of competitive submissions. A panel of industry peers judged entries and selected those airlines and / or vendor partners that had recently launched an innovative and brand new product or service. Immfly’s digital solution, which is the only one in Europe that offers tailored, quality, content-rich platforms specialised in revenue optimisation, was recognized as one of those products. Moreover, this Award comes on the heels of a year of milestones, new airline partnerships, and opened maritime market.
“We are delighted about having received two recognitions at once since it sets our solution as a game-changer on both a national and an international scale, shining a spotlight on what differentiates us from the competition” states Jimmy M. von Korff, co-founder of the Spanish company, who was present at the ceremony and collected the price. “Moreover, it has an exclusive motivational effect on the team and our partners, as it recognizes their hard work and celebrate success”.
