2021 Arizona Business Innovation Awards and the Best of Scottsdale Award

June 3, 2021

We’re excited to announce that Veyo has been selected as a winner for both the 2021 Arizona Business Innovation Awards and the Best of Scottsdale Award in the Software Development category by the Scottsdale Award Program!

The Arizona Business Innovation awards honor’s the 30 top organizations and individuals who are leading by disruption and stretching the limits of how business is done. This year, more than ever, business leaders across the world have been faced with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic requiring them to quickly innovate and adapt to ever-changing circumstances. These innovations included adjusting to new guidelines and requirements, identifying creative avenues to supplement business, developing new business practices to maintain service and more. Amidst these massive disruptions, innovation responses have provided a glimmer of light for long-term business opportunities.

Out of hundreds of nominations, Veyo was selected for its innovations in NEMT and for the key programs developed in response to COVID-19. This year these initiatives have been vital for communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, including specialized fleets to transport COVID-19 positive patients, emergency delivery programs, and collaborations to develop the first initiative in the country to cover drive-through COVID-19 vaccinations via transportation benefits. 

Veyo Wins Best of Scottsdale Award

The Scottsdale Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in the Arizona community. Each year, the Scottsdale Award Program identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. The winning companies are honored for their ability to continue to grow in spite of difficult economic times.

These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community and help make the Scottsdale area a great place to live, work and play.

Veyo’s recognition is a direct result of our team’s dedication and efforts as well as the work of others in our organization that have helped continue to build our business during the tough year of 2020 – we thank each and every one of you for your hard work! 

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2021 Scottsdale Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity, and winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Scottsdale Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Veyo and Arizona Fun Facts!
