Rootstock Software Shortlisted in Two Categories for 2017-18 Cloud Awards Program

International Cloud Computing Program Announces Shortlist

San Francisco, CA – 20 December 2017 – Rootstock Software is a finalist in the 2017-2018 Cloud Awards Program in the categories of Best Cloud ERP Solution and “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution.

The cloud computing awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. The awarding body accepts applications worldwide, covering the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA. Organizations of any size are accepted for consideration in the program, including those from governmental bodies, start-ups and established multinationals.

In 2017-18, categories include “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution, Best Software as a Service, Most Innovative Use of Data and Most Promising Start-Up.

Patrick Garrehy, Rootstock Founder and President said: “For Rootstock Software, being shortlisted in the Cloud Awards for both the Best ERP Solution and “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution categories is clear recognition of our team’s hard work and dedication to excellence and innovation. This is the second consecutive year we have been nominated for Best ERP Solution and to also be shortlisted for “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution for our new Rootstock Mobile App speaks to the true value we bring to our customers.”

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “Again, we have seen an overwhelming level of engagement from organizations of all sizes, each showing their commitment to cloud-based technologies and leveraging them in their own unique way.

“A clear pattern has emerged, and that is that the global technology community is not playing catch-up to the US when addressing cloud innovation.

“We have seen new levels of excellence in the submissions reviewed, and the judges have had great difficulty in categorizing those applications which should move further in the process. Indeed, virtually all of the entries scrutinized would be worthy of a place on the shortlist.

“It is clear that while the SaaS category remains as hotly-contested as ever, a new breed of competition for excellence is emerging worldwide, making the non-US SaaS submissions more relevant than ever. For those who did not make this year’s Cloud Awards shortlist, remember that the Cloud Awards sister program – the SaaS Awards – returns in the spring, to put a laser focus on innovation in software.

“We can only wait until 2018 to see which organizations emerge as final Cloud Award winners in their chosen category.”

Over 300 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist here:

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 30 January 2018.

The Cloud Awards will return with a new program in late 2018 to continue its recognition of excellence in cloud computing.

The Software as a Service Awards, judged in the spring, is currently accepting entries for its Spring 2018 program.
