Prague, 17th September 2014 – Company Medical CompuGroup Czech Republic got in ten companies in the Best Innovator 2014 competition that will compete for the title of best innovator. The competition, which focuses on innovation management in companies, is organized by A.T. Kearney. The winner will be officially announced on 19th November.

In the first round, there were more than a hundred companies that had to fill out an extensive questionnaire online. Then, from these companies, the jury chose ten in categories of large enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises. The competition, which takes place at the same time under the same rules in nineteen countries, does not focus on innovation itself, but on the whole innovation process in the company. It assesses how the company has set all of the innovation process from idea through implementation to how innovation is successful in the market.

"We are pleased that we have managed to succeed in the first round of this competition, because it confirms us that the way we approach to innovation in CompuGroup Medical is correct. When introducing innovations we try to be mainly based on the suggestions of our customers and on our experience in the market, in order to supply solutions that enable our users with benefits primarily, both in terms of comfort or of the financial and time savings," says about the results of the competition Vladimír Přikryl, CEO of CompuGroup Medical Czech Republic.

During September and October, the finalists will be visited by the evaluators personally within the companies to ensure that innovative process corresponds the way the company presented in the questionnaires. The jury includes, for example, economist Tomas Sedlacek or vice president of Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic Jiří Ciencala.
