A panel of KMWorld editors, industry analysts, industry experts, and end user customers made the selections from a field of more than 300 vendors.

"Each and every company whose products were chosen for this year's list of Trend-Setting Products is being acknowledged for its willingness to listen and serve its customers in useful and innovative ways."
"We are honored that for the second year in a row, KMWorld is acknowledging the significant and unique value that QL2 delivers to our customers," said Glenn Hasen, president and chief executive officer of QL2 Software. "We are particularly pleased about this award because it reflects input from our customers and others who recognize and have benefited from the market intelligence solutions that are built using QL2's core technology, WebQL."
Market intelligence is information relevant to a company's business environment, which is gathered and analyzed for the purposes of making better and faster business decisions, responding to changing market demands, and for developing new markets. KMWorld's recognition of QL2's WebQL 3.1 for the second consecutive year recognizes its position as a leading industry solution for providing real-time data extraction and integration.

WebQL also has the capability to read information encoded as images and within PDF documents using optical character recognition (OCR) technology.
