ARI has been named a finalist in two categories for the 2014 American Business Awards, including Video: Corporate Overview and Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year.

ARI will receive a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award in each area.

Along with eight other companies, ARI is a finalist in the video category for "What is it?" — the company's corporate video that highlights why ARI's employees are driven to provide the very best in customer service and emphasizes the company's focus on providing customized solutions using the most advanced technology which in turn allows customers to focus on their core business objectives.

ARI is also a finalist in the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year (more than 2,500 employees) category, along with three other companies. ARI's entry, "Giving back to the communities that support our success," explains how the company's program is based on the principles defined by its founder, Steward Holman, who emphasized the importance of contributing to deserving community organizations with the hope of creating a better climate in which everyone can work and live.

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May, and more than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine the final Stevie Award winners from among the finalists during final judging from May 13-22.

Winners will be announced at a special awards event on Friday, June 13 in Chicago. View more details about the American Business Awards and the full list of finalists in all categories at the website.
