Awarded with the INNOVATIONSPREIS -IT 2014 in the category Green IT


Only innovations that see the light of day can conquer the market, and only enterprises that recognize them and take the appropriate steps can attract new customers.

The renowned INNOVATIONSPREIS-IT (prize for IT-innovations) 2014 has established itself among middle-sized businesses and the IT sector in the past 11 years, thus successfully creating an organ and a platform that allows ambitious companies to present themselves and gain public attention.

Many editors, marketing experts, developers, and administrators see to it that information about these innovations achieve a large circulation and create awareness.

The award-winning innovations range from decisive improvements in public relations and marketing, to innovations based on existing IT-technology, extraordinary apps and finally the increasingly important developments in the area of reducing the use of natural resources by utilizing those resources available to reduce costs and especially to protect the environment!

Alltogether, in 2014 the Initiative Mittelstand (medium-sized businesses) awarded prizes in 41 categories. A top-class jury specifically selected highly innovative products with application potential for medium-sized businesses.

Three products were nominated from each of the 41 categories for the INNOVATIONSPREIS-IT 2014. The winners in each of the 41 categories were then selected among these nominees.

As winner in the category Green IT 2014, the jury selected GeoCool!
