Rootstock Software Shortlisted for 2016-17 Cloud Awards Program

International Cloud Computing Program Announces Shortlist

San Francisco, CA – 10 January 2017 – Rootstock Software® is a finalist in the 2016-2017 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Cloud HR, Payroll, or ERP Solution.

Now entering its seventh year, the cloud computing awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. Accepting entries from across the globe, entrants come from the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA. Entries are accepted from organizations of all sizes and include start-ups as well as government bodies.

In 2016-17, categories include Best Software as a Service from the US, Best Software as a Service from outside the US, Most Innovative Use of Data, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution and Most Promising Start-Up.

Rootstock CEO Pat Garrehy said: “In such a competitive year, it’s a special honor for our organization to be recognized in the Best Cloud HR, Payroll, or ERP Solution category of the 2016-17 Cloud Awards.”

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “In our sixth year of recognizing and celebrating excellence and innovation in the cloud, the standard of entries has been staggering.

“This high level of excellence is reflected in the size of organization we are seeing enter – from start-ups to blue chips, and everything in between. But it’s also the sheer global presence of cloud technologies, and innovators outside of the US that have started to become more prominent this year.

“Every organization on the shortlist is a worthy candidate, and the judges have had the most difficult time this year finding the best of the best, due to the standard and volume of entries. But every year, the bar gets raised to new levels.

“We will also be publishing a research report on the state of the cloud computing industry, based on the responses of the hundreds of participants who entered.”

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: https://www.cloud-awards.com/2017-shortlist/.

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.

The Cloud Awards (https://www.cloud-awards.com/cloud-computing-awards/) will return with a new program in late 2017 to continue its recognition of excellence in cloud computing.

The Software as a Service Awards (https://www.cloud-awards.com/software-as-a-service-awards/), judged in the spring, now enters its second year and is currently accepting entries.
