K2 Enterprises Announces 2014 K2 Quality Awards


October 1, 2014 – K2 Enterprises has released their annual technology awards for 2014.  “It was quite interesting this year as there were no unanimous winners.  There were votes for many solutions.  We did have some repeat winners this year but no unanimous winners” said Val Steed, CEO K2 Enterprises.  K2 has been providing the K2 Quality Awards now for thirteen years. “The products represented by K2 quality awards are among the best of class available today. Our instructors and attendees recognize the merits of the offering and the benefits that users enjoy.” said Randy Johnston, Executive V.P. “Anyone who can sway over our team members really deserves the recognition.  Congratulations to all.” added Brian Tankersley, Director of Strategic Relationships.
