Hot on the heels of our Director of Finance award for Software Provider of the Year for FinancialForce Financial Management, we’ve only gone and done it again!
The sun continues to shine on us this summer as we’re proud and pleased to reveal we won Best SaaS Product for Management Accounting or Budgeting at the SaaS Awards, for excellence and innovation in SaaS. This time not just among companies in the UK but against entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA.
This programme is the very first SaaS awards, which is run by the same company behind The Cloud Awards, now in its sixth year. Founded in 2011 by a group of technical engineers, business leaders and marketers, The Cloud Awards continue to be the de facto recognition platform for excellence and innovation in the sphere of Cloud Computing. In 2016, the Cloud Awards was augmented with the SaaS Awards recognition platform to more fully represent the breadth of cloud services available as software solutions.
Entrants were not just cloud-providers (but we know that cloud is best!), but also single-tenanted solutions, private cloud leverage, and off-premise or on-premise solutions. We were up against organisations of any size and any vertical.
The Best SaaS Product for Management Accounting and Budgeting was awarded for senior-management-level budgeting and finance planning. We provided information on how we differentiate from competitors, how we initially developed as a company and handle product development. We were also judged on how our FinancialForce Financial Management application innovates to help customers, including how it helps them overcome challenges faced in management accounting and budgeting. Finally, the judges considered its significance and implications for the future of management accounting and budgeting, and SaaS in general.
Even without an awards event, we celebrated into the early hours and we look forward to more award wins in 2016 to place into our burgeoning trophy cabinet!
