IBM Beacon Awards recognize IBM Business Partners for their technical excellence, industry expertise, and innovative solutions.

Kanteron Systems was named a winner of a 2013 IBM Beacon Award for Healthcare and Life Sciences. This honor is awarded each year in recognition of a select number of IBM Business Partners who have delivered not only innovative solutions but have set the standards for business excellence, ingenuity, and creation of an exceptional client experience.
