FAIRFIELD, N.J.May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Inception Company, a technology-driven engagement products and services company, is proud to announce they have been chosen as a finalist in the 5th Annual LTEN Excellence Awards, a national competition that recognizes innovative and inspiring work done by life sciences training professionals and providers in seven competitive categories. The company has been recognized in the Provider Innovation category for Pando, a virtual meeting technology that delivers extraordinary engagement by integrating remote participants with a live studio production. An Inception client has also been selected as a finalist in the Practitioner Innovation category for their vision of reimagining their 6-day Plan of Action (POA) meeting for 2500 sales representatives and conducting it on the Pando platform.

The awards are presented and sponsored by the Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network (LTEN), the world’s largest professional association of life sciences trainers and educators. Winners will be announced during a June 5 ceremony at the 48th LTEN Annual Conference, June 3-6, 2019, in Grapevine, TX.

“Our expert judges had their work cut out for them this year,” said Dawn Brehm, executive director of LTEN. “This year’s awards competition saw nearly twice as many entries as previous years, and the quality of the nominees was phenomenal, making judging a very difficult task. Still, our judges came up with an impressive list of finalists, and it’s an honor to recognize their game-changing work.”

Matt Giegerich, CEO of The Inception Company, commented, “We are honored to be recognized by LTEN for such a prestigious award. We launched Pando a year ago and have been thrilled to see the market receptivity. Pando answers an unmet need for our clients by bringing unparalleled engagement and collaboration to remote audiences.”

“We have been especially pleased to see how much our training clients appreciate Pando,” added Shaun Urban, President of The Inception Company. “The trainers enjoy the face-to-face communication with their audience, the ability to conduct real-time surveys and polling, and the option to measure engagement. And the use cases for Pando continue to expand almost daily. Pando has been used for advisory boards, physician speaker training, peer-to-peer education, product demonstrations, patient advocacy engagement, continuing medical education, global manager meetings, and others.”
