We’re proud to count the Citrix Innovation Award for Customers finalists among our impressive customer line-up at Synergy. Every year we put out a call for nominations for the Citrix Innovation Award. And every year, we are amazed at the ways our customers are putting Citrix technology to work, delivering innovation that is helping to define the future of work.

Our nominees this year were remarkable, with dozens of entries from commercial, non-profit, and governmental enterprises in diverse end-markets, ranging from education, financial services and government to healthcare and retail.

They included exceptional stories of visionary organizations all over the world driving bold and innovative solutions for IT’s most complex challenges, fueling business growth, forging strong connections between our customers and the people who rely on them and helping organizations find better ways to work.

And the Finalists Are…

We’ve chosen three extraordinary finalists for this prestigious award. Here are previews of their stories:

  • Indiana University (United States) is a multi-campus public university serving more than 130,000 students, faculty, and staff at seven campuses and two regional centers across the state, and worldwide through its online programs. IU uses the Citrix platform to extend its educational resources to everyone. One example is the virtual desktop for people who are visually impaired. IU is committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to achieve their academic goals.
  • Schroders (United Kingdom) has helped clients plan for the future for over two centuries by focusing on long-term investment. Schroders is always innovating, adapting and evolving to suit an ever-changing world. In September 2018, they moved headquarters to new purpose-built offices for 2,500 London-based employees. With Citrix solutions as a foundation, Schroders implemented a truly mobile and digital work environment for everyone, with highly flexible virtual technology leveraged for use on the desktop and in meeting rooms in the building.
  • ZF (Germany) is a global technology company that supplies systems for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and industrial technology, enabling the next generation of mobility. With its comprehensive technology portfolio, the company offers integrated solutions for established vehicle manufacturers, mobility providers and start-up companies in the fields of transportation and mobility. ZF continually enhances its systems in the areas of digital connectivity and automation in order to allow vehicles to see, think and act. By introducing the Citrix Cloud solution, ZF provides their business units a secure, fast and flexible solution to help their customers handle unique automotive industry challenges.
