2024 Stevie® Gold Award Winner for Corporate Social Responsibility Program

San Antonio, TX, April 25, 2024 – Gov2Biz Inc., a leader in government technology solutions has been awarded the prestigious Gold Stevie® Award in the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year category. This accolade recognizes Gov2Biz’s Port of Entry Tax Collection System. Deployed at the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC), dubbed POETCS, this system thwarts the import of illicit liquor, and underage drinking.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. Nicknamed “Stevies” for the Greek word meaning “crowned”, the awards recognize American Businesses that are making strides and contributions in a number of fields.

With over 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry, and over 300 judges, the competition was stiff and the judging process rigorous.

“While growth in much of the world economy has recovered slowly from the COVID-19 pandemic, the American economy continues to show remarkable resilience and growth,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. “Our 2024 Stevie winners have contributed to that successful recovery through their innovation, persistence, and hard work.”

The Gov2Biz’s port of entry solution with Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission was recognized for boosting regulatory compliance and public safety at Texas-Mexico border crossings. It helped state officials identify, disallow and destroy illicit liquor entering through the border. As legal age for purchasing and consuming alcoholic products is different internationally, it is for underage persons to acquire alcohol, and bring it across the ports of entry. The POE system allows state officials to identify and intercept such cases, while at the same time, making it easy for legal importation to breeze through the crossings.

“We are thrilled to receive this award. Doing good work is rewarding in itself; but being recognized for it by a peer group of professionals, is icing on the cake.” — Santhosh Vellaiyappan, CMO of Gov2Biz.
