CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- High Tech Views, a premier technology publication and this year's sponsor of the 17th annual Kinetic Process Innovation Awards, announces five award winners whose technology has made a significant contribution to supporting business growth and achievement for their customers.
