Voters aren’t simply selecting an app, they are ranking their user satisfaction with the technology systems that they use daily. It creates a true user satisfaction award rather than a popularity contest.
Portland, Maine (PRWEB) August 26, 2016
Accountex released the top 3 leaders in 26 categories for the User Favorite Awards, presented in partnership with AccountingWEB. Current leaders are updated regularly, although there will be only one award given out in each category. The awards program is a unique designation for an elite group of accounting technology solutions and is based on the Accounting Technology Ecosystem.
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. The voters have to rank the apps they use on a 5-star system similar to a Yelp® but for accounting software. 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.
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 250,000 accounting professionals in addition to featured press. Voting closes September 30, 2016.
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 focus on the level of satisfaction that each vote attributes to the application. Voters aren’t simply selecting an app, they are ranking their user satisfaction with the technology systems that they use daily. It creates a true user satisfaction award rather than a popularity contest.”
AccountingWEB publisher Andy North added: “Award 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.”
