Now in its fourth year, over 300 entries were received from organizations of various sizes, ranging from start-ups to government bodies all over the world, including the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA.
Commenting on the awards entries, the organizer of this year’s awards program Larry Johnson said: “The standard of entries to this year’s program has been truly staggering – so much so that even after culling hundreds of organizations from our consideration, our shortlist is still longer than ever before.” He continued, “As ever, the US organizations have dominated the submissions process, but we’re seeing more and more applicants from farther afield – Europe, the UK, Australia, Asia – we’re running the biggest and best celebration of excellence in the Cloud and the whole world wants to join the party.”
Winner of ‘Best SaaS’ outside of US at the Cloud Awards 2014, HRBoss was handpicked by judges and shortlisted as finalists in 4 prestigious categories this year. A strong advocate of leveraging Cloud Computing to bring new, differentiated offerings to the market, CEO & Founder of HRBoss, Bernie Schiemer remarked, “Once could be considered luck, but to be honoured for a second year running is surely testimony to the continued hard-graft and innovation that we put into developing workforce technology platforms, in the Cloud. We are nominated not just for one, but an unprecedented 4 times in unique categories in the same awards program. For a company driving our R&D activities from Asia, this a significant achievement for us. Congratulations to all other finalists, we are truly humbled to find ourselves up against such a strong breed of international talent.”
