Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB) July 14, 2016
Korean-based Polaris Office, the cloud-based productivity suite used by more than 40 million people worldwide, today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2016 SaaS Awards Program in the Best SaaS Product for Productivity and Best SaaS Newcomer categories.
With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the U.S., Canada, Australasia, the U.K. and EMEA. 2016 is the inaugural year for The SaaS Awards program, which is partnered with the annual Cloud Awards, now entering its sixth year.
Categories for the 2016 awards program include Best SaaS Product for Small Business, Best Enterprise-Level SaaS Product and Best Data-Driven SaaS Product.
“We are honored to be among the finalists in both the Best SaaS Product for Productivity and Best SaaS Newcomer categories,” said Sophie Kang, marketing manager at Polaris Office. “SaaS technologies sit in an incredibly competitive global marketplace and, as such, this is a huge achievement for our team.”
SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said, “The SaaS Awards, unlike the long-running Cloud Awards, which takes a more holistic approach to celebrating excellence in cloud services, is a recognition platform specifically for software solutions. Frankly, it’s about time: in a maturing international marketplace for cloud services, SaaS has proven to be the poster boy for leveraging thin-client technologies, while ensuring end-users are always working at the cutting edge.
“In its first year, we have already seen a groundswell of submissions from large, blue-chip organizations which continue to adapt and make inroads into the space, and smaller, more agile start-ups, which can occupy and dominate a niche.
“We’ve also welcomed a significant number of entries from outside North America, which is refreshing. The judging has taken its toll on our team – whittling the list down further in several categories will be a challenging task, with such a high standard of submissions. To make the shortlist itself is an honor.”
Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 9, 2016. The SaaS Awards are closed for entries and will return in spring 2017. Over 200 organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, the U.K., Europe and the Middle East.

A sister program to the SaaS Awards, The Cloud Awards (https://www.cloud-awards.com/), is currently accepting submissions for a new 2016-17 program, continuing its recognition of excellence in cloud computing, with a final October deadline.
