The Silver Award for the "Best Business Solution (eCommerce) Award" went to Ubeing Mobility's Posify, a cloud-based omni-channel retail management software-as-a-service that provides real-time inventory integration to synchronize point of sales and inventory data.

"I've been in the professional industry for more than 17 years, UBeing is my third startup company," said Gary Lam, founder and CEO of Ubeing Mobility. "I give special thanks to my team, who spent days and nights to work on the project over the last two years to put all the different pieces together."

On receiving the trophy, Lam shared his thoughts on the benefits of participating in the HKICT Awards.

"After joining the judges' review panel, we realigned our marketing materials with our go-to-market initiatives, by redesigning all our brochures to make them simpler and easier to read by SMBs. We also re-prioritized our products based on the judges' comment. Finally, we reprioritized our resources according to the judges' comments to expand our market reach. We will now grow globally by starting locally."

Call for firmer government support

As the host and lead organizer of the HKICT Awards for the past 11 consecutive years, HKCS President Michael Leung said the annual Award provides an excellent opportunity for local companies to demonstrate their remarkable accomplishments, and serves as a platform to encourage original software developments and promote innovative applications of information technology, both in business and in the community.

"With Hong Kong just elected its Chief Executive, HKCS would like to stress that government support is [a] very important [driver] for the ICT industry to go forward," Leung added.

Wong Yuk-shan, chairperson of the judging panel of the HKICT Awards 2017 -- Best Business Solutions Award, also president of The Open University of Hong Kong, said "all award submissions this year were of high quality, innovation, and with great market potential."

Wong added that the Hong Kong Government needs to step up its effort on developing the city's science and technology industries following the election of the new Chief Executive. "To develop Hong Kong's innovation and technology industry, we need firm support from the government -- not just in terms of funding, but effective policies," he said.

"We wish the new government can invest more resources on ICT, refine its ICT policies, and make them simpler, less cumbersome and more effective. Only then can ICT be made an effective driving engine of the economy," he said.

"Each award undeniably showcases our efforts in promoting ICT development in Hong Kong in respect of the deployment of innovative applications, the quality of products and services, and the needs of business and the community," said Leonard Chan, chairman of the organizing committee of ICT Awards 2017: Best Business Solutions Award.
