Nashville, TN January 7, 2014 — Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems is pleased to report that they have received a nomination for the Nashville Business Journal’s (NBJ) 2014 Best in Business Award. The award recognizes companies based on growth, service, quality, innovation, and execution of a superb business strategy. NBJ has been awarding the Best in Business honor for the past 27 years.
Wayne Lowe and Byron Middendorf had a vision to create a great place to work. And on that simple, yet clearly-defined vision, Equinox Information Systems was founded. In 1986, the company opened its doors as a custom software developer for the rapidly emerging and competitive telecommunications industry. The company has thrived ever since by focusing on what really matters—relationships with employees and customers. While technology and industry regulations constantly change, Equinox remains constant in their commitment to provide exceptional customer service and foster long-term relationships with customers. The company measures its success in terms of people and sense of honor.
Equinox is currently the dominant supplier of Fraud Management Systems (FMS) to telecommunications companies in the US market. They also serve the wireline and wireless markets with applications that are critical to billing, cost, revenue, and network management.
“Our goal has never been to measure our success in terms of revenue growth. The company’s mission, from the beginning, is to create a great place to work and always do the right thing for our employees and our customers. That philosophy has never changed,” explained Equinox founder and CEO, Byron Middendorf. “The average employee tenure is 14 years; we have served over 300 companies; and the number of customers who has ever declined to serve as a reference is zero. These statistics stand as a testament to the founding principles as well as our success in the business arena.”
Finalists and award recipients for this year’s Best in Business honor are selected by a panel of third-party judges in early 2014 and publically recognized at an awards ceremony in March. Finalists and award recipients are also featured in a special NBJ publication.
