The Web Marketing Association (http://www.webaward.org) is pleased to announce the Best Computer Software Web Site Winner as part of the 10th annual international WebAward Competition, the Internet's premier website award competition.
"The computer software industry scores above average in all judging criteria over the past four years with design, content, copywriting and ease of use leading the way," said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. "Consumers expect computer software manufacturer's Web sites to set the expectations for the company's products. Therefore, it is not surprising that the industry has paid close attention to all of the usability aspects that make a Web site functional for consumers."
Computer Software websites represent a highly competitive industry within the WebAward competition. Each website is judged on the same seven criteria including:
- Copy writing
- Ease of use
The overarching goal of the WebAward Competition is to provide a forum to recognize the people and organizations responsible for developing the most effective computer software websites on the Net today.
