NEW YORK, NY – The annual Cloud Awards program has announced a new springtime awards program specifically aimed at promoting the successes and innovation of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendors.

The SaaS Awards program will recognize excellence in Software-as-a-Service – and accept entries from across the globe, covering the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, UK, Middle East, Asia and Africa. The program will also accept entries from organizations of all sizes, from large enterprises to start-ups.

Categories include Best SaaS Product for ERP, Best SaaS Product for Sales and Marketing, Best UX or UI Design in a SaaS Product, Best Enterprise-Level SaaS Product and Best SaaS Newcomer.

Cloud Awards and SaaS Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “Since 2011 the Cloud Awards program has been the go-to platform for celebrating success in the Cloud.

“We’ve spotted a key trend in Cloud Computing – Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS, is easily the most recognized aspect of Cloud technologies. It also offers some of the most diverse solutions. From consumers to enterprise-level business, we use SaaS every day. We need an adequate platform that showcases the huge diversity of SaaS products in their own dedicated forum.

“SaaS vendors are invited to enter their solutions solo, or even partner with a customer who has an effective case study to show.

“As the perfect sister program to the Cloud Awards, which are judged after October, the SaaS Awards program is accepting entries now and will close this May. Now Cloud vendors with SaaS products have two opportunities to showcase their market-leading services.”

The SaaS Awards is now accepting applications for its 2016 program. The deadline for the new springtime SaaS Awards is the penultimate Friday in May – this year, Friday 20 May 2016. For more information, visit
