The awards just keep on coming for our Financial Management products as we earn the winning title for the second year running in the 2017 International Software as a Service Awards – for the Best SaaS Product for Management Accounting or Budgeting category.
This comes hot on the heels of previous award wins this year for our financial products in the Stevie Awards last month where we won Best New Product or Service of the Year for Financial Management, and the UK Cloud Awards in February where we won Financial Product of the Year.
This was the second SaaS awards, which is run by the same company behind The Cloud Awards, now in its seventh year. We’re proud to so far be undefeated in the category!
Founded in 2011 by a group of technical engineers, business leaders, and marketers, The Cloud Awards continues 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 organizations of any size and any vertical.
The Best SaaS Product for Management Accounting and Budgeting was awarded for senior-management-level budgeting and financial 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 2017 to place into our burgeoning trophy cabinet!
