Accountex announced the User Favorite Awards, presented in partnership with AccountingWEB, which replaces the former Sleeter Awesome Apps. The new awards program is a unique designation for an elite group of accounting technology solutions and is based on the Accounting Technology Ecosystem. There will be only one award given to a company in each category and the winners are decided by the users themselves.

The User Favorite Awards will be the result of a cumulative scoring system rather than a popularity contest of which vendor can receive the most votes. It is designed to recognize the leaders of a given category in the Accounting Technology Ecosystem, who are truly the favorite of the people who use them on a daily basis.

AccountingWEB and Accountex hold a shared belief that given the right support and inspiration, accounting firms can evolve to better meet the needs of their clients. The two organizations announced a joint marketing campaign earlier this year to better serve the accounting community in technology education. The awards program takes those initiatives to the next level, marrying in the voice of the practitioner and their experience with solution providers.

Award winners will be announced at the 2016 Accountex USA Conference and Expo, and will be featured on AccountingWEB in November. A special newsletter on all the winners will be sent to a database of over 150,000 accounting professionals in addition to featured press.

RD Whitney, Executive Director of Accountex, explained the significance of the awards program: “When we set out to redefine a new awards program that really stood out from the rest, it was important that the users themselves be heard. The User Favorite Awards do just that and don’t water down the voting scale with a panel and focus on the level of satisfaction that each vote attributes to the application. These prestigious awards will be hard to come by and sought out for years as they are a true designation of successful product launch that the vendors should be proud to receive.”

AccountingWEB publisher Andy North added: “Awards programs that are based on the actual user or reader feedback are the most valued as they are the true stakeholder who can speak to the value of the solution provided.” He continued, “Accounting WEB is excited to be a part of the User Favorite Awards program as it honors a single provider in each category of a massive marketplace.”
