Harrogate, United Kingdom, 2011/07/11 - FinancialForce.com, announced that it has won the category of Best Cloud Offering in the EuroCloud UK Awards for its FinancialForce Accounting application, delivered on Force.com, the world’s leading cloud computing platform from salesforce.com.
The purpose of the Awards is to highlight best practices, innovation and customer success achieved by providers of cloud services and products in the UK. FinancialForce Accounting was recognised by the judges, drawn from the EuroCloud Board, as the cloud product that is most distinctive in its features and market appeal. The judges considered factors such as innovation, business impact and value of the capabilities offered, while also looking for leadership in best practices across technology, operations and go-to-market.
“This is the first time we have run this awards programme and we were impressed by the overall standard of entry,” said Phil Wainewright, industry analyst and vice-president of EuroCloud. “There is much innovation happening in the cloud industry and Europe and the UK in particular, are building momentum. The recent EuroCloud Congress in Luxembourg showcased some of the finest examples of cloud computing and the growing maturity of cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is empowering European businesses to seize the opportunities that this technology can deliver. It’s also great to see a European organisation like FinancialForce.com doing so well in the US market. A deserving winner of this accolade.”
