AT&T Wins Two Stevie Awards in Fifth Annual American Business Awards


AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has announced the winning of two Stevie® Awards in the 2007 American BusinessSM Awards. AT&T won for Sales Excellence with the AT&T eSales and Service organization and for Best New Product or Service in Telecommunications with the AT&T BusinessDirect® mobile capabilities.

Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” (New York Post, April 27, 2005), the American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program that honors great performances in business.

The AT&T BusinessDirect portal combines service management and support-reporting tools into a single, secure extranet site that provides users with increased visibility and cost control over their network performance and investments. Each month, hundreds of thousands of AT&T business customers conduct more than 3 million transactions — including ordering services, maintenance requests and billing inquiries — using the AT&T BusinessDirect portal. The number of AT&T BusinessDirect customer transactions increased 12 percent in 2006, and AT&T expects use of the service to grow even higher in 2007.

“As an industry leader in online servicing, AT&T’s excellence and innovation continue to be recognized,” said Mark Metzendorf, vice president of eSales and Services. “These awards are the latest proof of that recognition, and we’re honored to be the recipient of not one but two Stevie Awards this year.”

Stevie Awards were presented in more than 40 categories, including Best Overall Company, Best Executive and Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program. More than 2,000 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration.
