Canvera awarded "Best Innovation in Technology" for bringing Professionalism & Innovation to an unorganized market - Jan 2010

Asian Photography magazine awarded the "Best Innovation in Technology" award at their recently concluded annual awards held alongside Photofair 2010 in Mumbai. The award was given to recognize the professionalism and innovation Canvera is bringing to a highly fragmented market. In a short span of two years Canvera has introduced many innovative products such as customized coffee-table-books and soft cover miniature replicas that have raised the quality expectations in the market. In addition the products are delivered at unmatched service levels not seen before in the industry. Speaking on the occasion jury member Abhay Bhargava said, "We felt that not only the products but more importantly the methodology & procedures offered by Canvera were revolutionizing the Photo Album industry considering the fact that they took up the job of organizing a rather disorganized sector."

"Canvera's simple mission is to be a high quality provider in the photographic industry and we could not be more pleased to have received this award," said Dr. Dhiraj Kacker, CEO of Canvera. "The award recognizes the daily commitment to quality by the 300+ people working for Canvera which is reflected not just in our products but also the service that we provide our clients."
