Software as a Service Awards categories
An overview of awards categories follows below. Winners will be selected internationally, including the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. As a Cloud Awards partner, the SaaS Awards strives to represent software from across the globe: not only is equal weighting given to all countries, but individual awards across any category may be split into more than one award depending on the strength of submissions from different regions.
This award will go to the best SaaS product for small businesses, across a broad gamut of possible applications. Applicants are encouraged to supply client case study materials, or for beta products, sufficient evidence of compelling market research or focus group evidence.
This award will go to the best SaaS product for large, enterprise-level businesses, across a broad gamut of possible applications. Applicants are encouraged to supply client case study materials, or for beta products, sufficient evidence of compelling market research or focus group evidence.
This award will go to the best SaaS product for NPOs, governmental or educational organizations, across a broad gamut of possible applications. Applicants are encouraged to supply client case study materials, or for beta products, sufficient evidence of compelling market research or focus group evidence.
This award will go to the best SaaS product, either business-oriented or consumer-facing, which increases user productivity. Applicants are encouraged to supply client case study materials for increased productivity. A typical SaaS product for this category would be used in a call center or office.
Eligible software services include e-commerce website plugins, customer-facing solutions or back-end organizational software. Applicants must provide evidence of business improvement – whether increased efficiency, sales, conversions, usability, etc. Again, case study materials or market research may be beneficial.
The award for best SaaS product for web development will be awarded to software that clearly meets a developer need. You may wish to demonstrate how the software encourages adoption of current bast practice or improved efficiency.
This broad category covers any point of the supply chain, from order taking to final fulfilment. There are manifold challenges in this area; please supply evidence of innovation and/or tangible successes.
This category is for software in the ticketing and event management industry. Judges will pay particular attention to case study materials illustrating data-driven ROI and innovative use of current technologies.
Applicants should consider business processes and procedures important and / or specific to catering and hospitality, including but not limited to booking, inventory management, customer engagement, etc.
This award runs across a range of software services, including social buzz and sentiment monitoring, social network management, press cutting management, media alerts, media distribution services and PR management. In an increasing deluge of web-driven data, judges will favor SaaS products that smartly filter the noise to client advantage.
This award will be given to the service which best allows business to support their customers. Customer service and CRM, from ticketing systems to end-to-end user journey monitoring, must be supported by real-world evidence of success in the form of client testimonials or case studies.
Another award with a focus on data-driven services, the judges are looking for data collection systems and intelligent analytics to help guide business decisions. Innovation is critical here, and there is no reliance on case study materials for successful applicants (although where given, it will be taken into consideration).
Award for best warehouse management software. Candidates should demonstrate how a range of real-world problems have been solved by their solution. There is also potential for applicants to demonstrate how their warehouse management solution integrates with further supply chain considerations.
Judges will take a holistic view of the ERP solution and would encourage applicants to do the same, giving a top-level overview of the benefits of their ERP solution and the role of ERP in tying together disparate business functions.
This award will be given to a SaaS product from any category which demonstrates innovative and/or beautiful design. Candidates should bear in mind that form follows function, and clear workflows and design should be supported by testimonial content.
A general category, Best Data-Driven SaaS product can be from any category of SaaS which actively demonstrates intelligent use of data, whether “separating the signal from the noise,” or holistically tying together disparate data to reach positive outcomes.
This award will be given to the best SaaS product to appear in the last 12 months. Products still in beta will be considered. Judges are looking for evidence of innovation and either positive reception or clear market demand.
Security is a huge concern for SaaS vendors, with shifting needs and requirements that must be met for SaaS in any vertical – or as a standalone issue of security. This category requires an innovative approach to security for any SaaS solution.
