Alumni-Owned Web Company Competes Against Coca-Cola for National Business Award

JP JonesOral Roberts University alumna JP Jones has a reason to celebrate. The 2006 graduate co-founded Collipsis Web Solutions, LLC with Nicholas Clayton shortly after graduation, and the company was recently named a finalist in the eighth annual Stevie® Awards for sales and customer service. Collipsis was nominated for the Best Use of Technology in Customer Service - Computer Services category and will ultimately be a gold, silver, or bronze Stevie Award winner.

“I am on cloud nine right now,” said Jones. “The full list of finalists in our category includes national brands such as Coca-Cola, GoDaddy and RackSpace. It is so humbling to realize that Collipsis has come this far — it makes all the late hours and non-existent social 'life' worth it!”

Collipsis creates client driven content websites that are rich in media content, eCommerce solutions, and have a robust content management system. They also specialize in online marketing, graphic design, and getting corporate branding package into the public eye. The company is known for being “small enough to know your name, big enough to handle your business.”

Finalists for the Stevie Awards, which recognize outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide, were determined by the average scores of 129 professionals worldwide. To determine the final placements, more than 100 members of seven specialized judging committees will evaluate the finalists during final judging, which will take place January 27 - February 5, 2014.   

The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 21 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.
