ModusLink Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of ModusLink Global Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK), a global, omni-channel technology and fulfillment provider, today announced it has been named a winner in the 2016 BIG Awards for Business, presented by the Business Intelligence Group, for its Poetic® Service Cloud Solution that helps organizations bridge the gap between connected devices and revenue potential. The solution was selected as a New Product of the Year, an award reserved for products making a significant industry impact within their first twelve months on the market.

The 2016 BIG Awards for Business recognizes outstanding organizations and individuals who are innovating the way their companies and customers do business. This year's winners were chosen by a select group of business leaders who reviewed nominations from across the globe, spanning multiple industries. "Modern companies are now relying on their customers for inspiration and direction to improve and launch new products. We are so proud of all of the winners this year. It is truly a select group," said Russ Fordyce, Managing Director of the Business Intelligence Group.

ModusLink's Poetic® Service Cloud is a fully-integrated, customizable solution for companies to utilize the benefits of IoT connectivity by connecting their smart devices to the cloud to collect service and usage data that can then be used to improve customer or B2B services. Among key features are auto-replenishment, integrated device repairs and returns, and service monitoring and maintenance. The result is more efficient processes and exceptional customer service, both of which improve a company's bottom line.

"As the IoT continues to be a focal point for many organizations as they look to leverage this new technology, it is exciting to see ModusLink's Poetic ® Service Cloud Solution gain such positive recognition," said Neil Hampshire, Chief Information Officer of ModusLink. "Being recognized for these efforts by the Business Intelligence Group is a testament to the hard work that our amazing team here at ModusLink has put in to develop this solution for our customers in order to provide them with one of the most advanced innovations in the supply chain industry."
