Growing a global technology company is no easy task. So to be awarded Best SaaS Company by the Cloud Awards is a testament to the work of 1600+ global team, who are doing some of the best work of their lives to help small businesses and our accounting partners thrive.
The Cloud Awards
The cloud computing awards program, which is now entering its seventh year, celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. The awards program accepts entries from across the world, from organizations of all sizes.
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “Every organization on that shortlist is a worthy winner, and to select just one in each category has been a gargantuan task. We live in a rapidly-changing world, and the sands are shifting every day in the cloud space. Cloud service providers need to be constantly innovating to stay relevant. This is why the awards program is so relevant year-on-year.”
