Beltone announced that its premier product, the Beltone Amaze, has been named a winner in the 2020 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. The award recognises breakthrough technology that allows direct streaming of phone calls, music and other sounds from devices that run on the Android operating system while preserving battery life by using Bluetooth Low Energy. Previously, direct streaming was limited to Apple devices. With 75 percent of the world’s mobile users relying on Android phones, Beltone’s innovation has made it easier for millions of people with hearing loss to access technology that can improve their quality of life, as well as make it easier to connect with others.
“Innovation has become a major theme for organisations across virtually all industries and this year’s winners are a testament to the creativity, passion, and perseverance of individuals worldwide,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honouring Beltone as they are leading by example and making real progress on improving the daily lives of so many.”
