Birmingham, AL – August 20, 2020 – Command Alkon, the Leading Supplier Collaboration Platform for Construction’s Heavy Work, has made the final shortlist for the 2020 SaaS Awards program. Command Alkon was chosen under the Project Management, Workflow Automation, or PLM category.
Now in its fifth year of celebrating software innovation, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA and UK.
Categories for 2020 include Best Data-Driven SaaS Product and Best Enterprise-Level SaaS Product, alongside new categories for Digital Marketing, Healthcare, and Conferencing.
Command Alkon’s CONNEX is a SaaS-based platform for supplier collaboration. It enables business partners to automate inter-enterprise operations, capture real-time visibility into heavy material orders and deliveries, leverage leading-edge software experiences to achieve mutually beneficial goals, and share knowledge to manage by exception and promote certainty of outcomes.
Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: “Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business.”
Williams continues, “This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodelling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders to arranging meetings, SaaS technologies are more important than ever.”
“To recognize this, we have donated entry fees from shortlisted entrants to this year’s ‘Communication, Collaboration and Conferencing’ category to the WHO’s COVID-19 Response Fund,” adds Williams. “Together, we have raised $3,555 for the fund, an achievement we hope underscores the vital need for sustained organizational innovation across all sectors. It’s our joy at the SaaS Awards to celebrate the innovations that fuel business, although of course compiling this year’s shortlist has been more difficult than ever. We look forward to announcing the category winners at the end of August.”
Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday 25 August 2020 and the program will return in Spring 2021. Hundreds of organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe and the Middle East.
