Convene has been shortlisted in five categories of the recently concluded 2016 SaaS Awards. Though our board portal solution didn’t take home the top awards in this year’s round, the Convene team is still proud and grateful for the recognition given to the product. It’s a thrill to be put in the same league as various names in cloud computing, and it’s also an added feather to Convene’s cap after it won Storage and Information Management Solution of the Year at the European IT & Software Excellence Awards last April.
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. Just last year in 2016, the Cloud Awards was augmented with the SaaS Awards recognition platform to fully represent the breadth of cloud services available as software solutions.
Nominees and winners for the SaaS Awards come from all over the globe and span different industries, making it quite a diverse platform through which many cloud service providers can be represented, whether newcomers or old players in the field. Competition is tough but nevertheless, everyone got a chance.
The five categories Convene qualified for are:
- Best SaaS Product for Business Intelligence or Analytics
- Best SaaS Product for Customer Services / CRM
- Best SaaS Product for Non-Profits or Education
- Best SaaS Product for Project Management
- Best UX/UI/Design in a SaaS Product
Winners were Masergy Communications (managed services and cloud communications provider), Five9 (cloud contact center software), TechnologyOne (enterprise accounting software), Arena Solutions (cloud product lifecycle management solution), and CareCloud (cloud-based practice management and electronic health record software), respectively.
We’re looking forward to joining again next year — and hopefully winning an award or two when the time comes around! For now, we strive to continuously improve Convene, both to satisfy existing clients and to reach prospective customers that are in need of a board portal solution that’s secure, affordable, and easy to use.
