Technology and lifestyle media, PC.com once again returns with its Best Product of the Year Awards 2020, this time with an all-time highest list of 52 different categories and over 260 nominations!
The award winners voted over PC.com’s official digital platform LiveatPC.com saw readers selecting their choices spanning from October to end November with the winners having been finally compiled.
A tough call as some winners came in close with their peers narrowing with just 1 or 2 votes making a difference. The 20th year edition of the awards aimed to recognise innovation and customer satisfaction among industry players including those in the telco, data providers, mobile phones, gaming products and office-use, among others.
While some players return for a consecutive win, 2020 also saw new winners for categories such as the Best E-Wallet Service Provider. The votes resemble the innovative efforts by the providers to constantly offer the best service for both their existing users and at the same time attract new users.
The 2020 Awards also added new categories, first being the Technovator of The year which pays tribute to dynamic leaders in the tech industry and the other for the disruptors in tech who stood out during the pandemic,
“As the awards marked a milestone as the Most Prestigious Tech Media Award, the readers’ choice for each category proves that innovation and new offerings will always retain existing users and at the same time, attract new fans every year.
While we have experienced an unprecedented change of events this year, the awards led by the readers’ votes also show that innovation will always be at the forefront of changing times and tech fans are always looking for something new,” said Managing Editor, Selva Rajan.
The winning recipients will also be featured in an upcoming collector’s annual issue and will be available in bookstores, online and exclusive on Shopee by the month’s end.
