The finalists have been announced in the 2020 Software as a Service Awards. Finalists cover the entire globe, and range from start-ups to established blue-chips. This year, the Awards program saw a host of new categories, including a new category for Communication, Collaboration and Conferencing. Proceeds from entries to this category were donated to the WHO’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: “Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business.

“This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodelling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders to arranging meetings, SaaS technologies are more important than ever.

“To recognize this, we have donated entry fees from shortlisted entrants to this year’s ‘Communication, Collaboration and Conferencing’ category to the WHO’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Together, we have raised $3,555 for the fund, an achievement we hope underscores the vital need for sustained organizational innovation across all sectors.”
