Atalasoft Honored as Mass High Tech “TECH CITIZEN”
Boston, Mass. – November 21, 2008 - Mass High Tech, The Journal of New England Technology, has recognized Atalasoft, Inc. among its 2008 Tech Citizenship award recipients. Now in its 8th year, the MHT Tech Citizenship award recognizes the region's top technology companies giving back to their communities.
Tech Citizenship award-winning companies donated at least one-half of one percent of gross revenue, or a minimum of $500,000 in total value, to nonprofit causes. In 2007, 22 technology companies from New England, including Atalasoft, were honored for their corporate philanthropy and focus on partnering with local charities.
Atalasoft, a provider of photo and document imaging technology for enterprises and independent software vendors, works with The Brain Trust, a non-profit organization focused on supporting individuals afflicted with brain tumors as well as supporting their families. Each month, Atalasoft donates 100% of the proceeds of the sales of their Eyebatch product (a batch image processing application) to The Brain Trust in honor of Bither’s father.
“It’s an honor for us to be recognized in this group,” said Bill Bither, Atalasoft President & CEO. “Atalasoft’s donation has a large impact on The Brain Trust and we are very proud to be a part of this effort and join in the spirit of giving back to the community.”
"Difficult as it may be in the current economy, the private sector must be even more creative, and more generous, in helping its nonprofit neighbors do the work they do: reaching and keeping society’s weakest members from falling through the ever-widening cracks of society," said Douglas Banks, editor of Mass High Tech. “This year’s group of Tech Citizens, our largest ever, is an example of just how dedicated the technology industry is in being a good corporate partner in such an important challenge.”
The Tech Citizenship award winners were honored in a breakfast at the Museum of Science Boston and profiled in the November 21, 2008, edition of Mass High Tech. Bither, along with Samantha Scolamiero, Director of The Brain Trust, spoke at the breakfast about their partnership.
Michael Olivieri, publisher of Mass High Tech explains, “We began these awards because we wanted to combat what was once a prevailing stereotype that the tech industry doesn’t step up when it comes to philanthropy. Once again, I think we’ve shown that – through creative efforts including in-kind donations and volunteerism – it does.”
