It is with real pleasure and a genuine sense of achievement that I want to share some great news: another great year of solid progress at EASY Software UK has been topped in the best way possible – by recognition of that achievement by our peers and customers.
Specifically, I can share with you guys on DMCollaborators, the delightful fact that we took first place in this year’s ‘Enterprise CMS Product’ Award with EASY Enterprise 4 and were also Runners Up in the ‘Channel Partner of The Year’ Award.
The event was the document management industry’s premier industry event for such things – the 2014 Document Manager Awards.
And over the course of a lovely black-tie evening in front of around 1,000 guests in London in late October, my colleague Tony Cheung and I went along to meet other suppliers, partners, clients and commentators to celebrate all the best in what our industry can do.
Joining giants like Microsoft
We’ve been to the DM Awards before. Indeed, we have often done very well there, which is always a highlight of our year. But to be honest with you, to win, or even be shortlisted, for a DM Magazine award is genuine recognition that you have reached the highest standards – as judged by industry experts, partners and colleagues.
Everyone works long and hard throughout the year at EASY anyway, but getting on that award roster is acknowledgement that everyone’s effort and dedication has been worthwhile.
So imagine how proud Tony and I were to go up and be able to collect a wonderful pair of ‘gongs’ for that hard work. First up, the Product of the Year Award was a real heart-stopper for us – especially as past winners of the Enterprise CMS Award included giants like Microsoft.
The judges seem to have agreed, in any case, that EASY Enterprise 4, the latest version of our award-winning ECM solution, made the right sort of impression. EASY Enterprise 4 simplifies communications with third-party systems, while simultaneously creating graphic workflows that enable truly transparent processing through versioning and complete documentation.
And the Channel category is always one we strive to do well in, as our partner network really is one of the most important elements of the entire EASY value chain. We’ll win next year, promise, guys!
We thank, above all, our clients and partners for their belief in us and continued loyalty, but also, absolutely from the heart, everyone who voted for us. We never take your support for granted.
Thanks – and see you next year!
