PTO Genius wins grand prize at tech conference

After almost a year and a half of market research, legal due diligence, product development, and three successful pilots, PTO Genius officially launched.

The excitement was contagious as PTO Genius took first prize at SuperConf, one of the biggest tech conferences in Florida. “We were hopeful that we would win but the competition had some amazing tech” said Ulises I. Orozco, Co-Founder of PTO Genius. “This win brings us one step closer to our goal of help companies and employees do more with their PTO.”

With 55% of full-time US employees not using all of their PTO, and over 78% of people living paycheck-to-paycheck, there’s a lot of opportunity to help improve the lives of America’s workforce.

Second place winner CommandDot built an elegant way to supercharge productivity via easy-to-use shortcuts for email. While the teams at Artify, the popular web-based graphic editor, Approvely, and Cargologik all presented impressive and disruptive technologies across multiple business verticals. “It was really an honor to be surrounded by such an innovative group of companies,” said Orozco. “The team at PTO Genius was so happy to be featured amongst such a strong group, and we’re humbled by the results.”

With the victory comes a small cash prize and access to free services from SuperConf sponsors PostmarkSentry, and Figma. “We’re big fans of these products at PTO Genius. Some we already use daily to bring our services to enterprise.” said Orozco.

“We are all experiencing an abrupt change in our personal and work lives. A new normal is here. But for us, this award is a part of a bigger experience – an opportunity to celebrate the positivity, adaptability, and hard work that everyone involved at SuperConf displayed.” said Orozco.
