Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
Express Metrix®, a leading provider of IT asset management solutions, announced today that it has once again been named a finalist for "Best Asset Management Solution" in the SIIA's annual CODiE Awards, which recognize excellence in a variety of categories within the areas of business software, digital content, and education technology. Express Metrix's flagship product, Express Software Manager, won the prestigious award in 2008, and has achieved finalist status every year since it was first nominated in 2006—the only company to claim this accomplishment within the category.
The CODiE Awards are the software industry's only peer-reviewed awards program, involving a rigorous vetting from a distinguished panel of judges representing industry executives and analysts, as well as voting amongst the SIIA's membership reflecting the broader market of software manufacturers. This year's first round of judging yielded only two finalists for 2012: Express Metrix and another industry expert, Flexera Software.
Express Metrix CEO, Kris Barker, noted, "We are honored that Express Software Manager is once again on the short list of top asset management products. It's testimony to our continued commitment to innovation within the marketplace, as well validation that our product evolution resonates with our peers in the software industry."
According to the SIIA, the "Best Asset Management Solution" awards software that "best audits and manages software assets...across a network environment." Specific features evaluated include: lifecycle management, ease of use, functionality and fulfillment of key attributes, strength of discovery, license management, and metering tools, and more.
Express Software Manager has been under development for over ten years, and is recognized throughout the industry for its rich asset management capabilities, including hardware and software inventory, application usage tracking, license metering, application control, an IT purchasing system, and comprehensive IT asset reporting and analytics.
