Chattanooga’s Text Request wins a “Stevie” in the 19th Annual “American Business Awards®” competition

Text Request, a Chattanooga-based business texting platform, has been selected as a recipient of a “Stevie” in the 19th Annual “American Business Awards®” competition.

Officially known as the “Gold Stevie® Award,” the recognitions will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on June 30. The name of the award comes from the Greek word meaning “crowned.”

A record number of nominations – more than 3,800 – were received from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry for what is described as the country’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our team for winning this award for their work throughout one of the most turbulent years for businesses in American history,” said Brian Elrod, Text Request Chief Executive Officer. “This is their award. Our staff is resilient, resourceful, and always looking for ways to help our clients experience as many wins as possible with the software we’ve built. I am excited to leverage last year’s momentum for even more growth throughout 2021 and beyond.”

Text Request was nominated in the “Small Business-sized Computer Software” category, and the award was announced the same week that the company was recognized by the Chattanooga Times Free Press as a “Best Place to Work” for the second consecutive year.

We first spotlighted Text Request in late 2019 in this article.
