Winners of European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014 announced

[London, 27th March 2014] IT Europa, the leading European IT publisher and market intelligence organisation, has announced the winners of the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014 - the pan-European awards event for ISVs, IT and Telecoms channels. The finalists were honoured last night at a celebration dinner at the London Lancaster Hotel.

This year's European IT Excellence Awards shows just how diverse the IT supply industry has become with solutions ranging from construction site management to healthcare systems and government document control, and from all parts of Europe. With strong, measurable returns, many of these IT projects prove that IT investment can make business, government and other organisations a lot better and more productive. The total payback from the projects in these awards runs into many millions of euros.

The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Solution Providers have in delivering real-world solutions. It attracted entries from 25 countries, and these entries, while submitted by the ISVs and solution providers themselves, each had to be supported by an endorsement by the client. 81 companies from 16 countries made the finals. The winners were selected by an independent panel of consultants and editors.

There were several major success stories, with previous years' winners returning in force and carrying off further awards. A strong batch of entries from the UK, Eastern Europe, Germany, and many from Indian companies working in Europe shows how companies are competing to deliver real rewards to customers, which can only be good for the industry.

"We are finding a consistently high level of entries for each of these annual awards, and we had an impressively wide range of industries and solutions addressed," says John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa. "What impressed us this year was the quality and the measurable returns many of these projects delivered. Many have total paybacks many times the value of the IT investment, and we are seeing many of these projects delivered as part of a continuing expansion of productive investment. This shows what a great relationship these IT suppliers have with their customers, and how customers are keen to work with suppliers on a long term change to their organisations."

The awards categories were divided into several groups: the ISV categories were for software houses, app developers and integrators supplying systems for vertical markets, government or custom environments. The Solution Provider categories were for complete solutions, often delivered with a strong services element, and finally the supplier categories, for which channel companies nominated their distributors, service providers and vendors for the support provided through their channel programmes.
