infoTech Niagara held it’s 12th Annual BETA Awards on April 3rd at the Buffalo Convention Center, honoring the best and brightest in the technology field in Western New York. About 350 guests attended a trade show in the afternoon and then enjoyed the BETA Awards dinner and presentation that evening. The award show is actually one of my favorites to attend, as it features video skits, featuring 2012 BETA Award Finalists (that’s us!) which were produced by EMedia Studios. Our very own Shawn Frier, CPA, Director was a featured “actor,” and he did a great job in this year’s game shows themed skit for TV show “Fear Factor.”

“The BETA Awards not only honor those who stand out in the technology field, but also allows them all a chance to connect and build a stronger IT Community,” said Jeff Ross, infoTech Niagara’s Vice-Chairman.

Freed Maxick is proud to have been named the company awarded the “Best Tech Culture” honor at this year’s awards. This is a second time award for the firm, as we won “Best Social Media” last year in 2011. We are very proud of this designation and will always continue to utilize technology in all that we do.
