Very is proud to announce that we were named the winner of the Silver Stevie® Award in the Product Management / Team of the Year category in the 19th Annual American Business Awards®.

About the Award

Honoring organizations of all types and sizes and the people behind them, the Stevies recognize outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide.


Very won the award for our 10-Step approach to Agile development methodologies in the IoT space. Namely, our work with Loxx Boxx and SUN Automation was highly praised for our ability to help clients break through the crowded IoT marketplace – 100% remotely.

Our team is able to consistently deliver enterprise and consumer-grade IoT solutions by focusing on the most important principles of Agile development as we interpret them, which are:

  • Continuously delivering value to end-users
  • Ensuring features are production-ready before moving to new features
  • Testing early and often
  • Making each development decision at the last responsible moment, and not before

“Great product,” one judge remarked, “IoT is the wave of the future, all manufacturing companies will benefit from harnessing more information and providing them a blueprint on how to optimize their processes and equipment. A product like yours is very innovative and will be valuable to many different companies.”

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we’re poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations in the American Business Awards are a testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people.”
