webCRM has been named CRM Product of the Year at the 2017 Network Computing Awards, in which the winners are determined by a largescale vote from Network Computing’s end-user readership.
“Comprehensively winning such a respected award as this is a huge vote of confidence in our product and service from the people that matter most: our end-users,” comments James Bogue, Director at webCRM (UK).
The awards, now in their 11th year, recognise excellence in the key networking and communications, data centre and software categories that form an effective IT infrastructure.
webCRM’s award success was announced late on the Thursday evening at the annual Network Computing Awards dinner and ceremony at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London, in front of a large audience containing many of the industry’s leading lights. Winners included some of the biggest names in IT, with successes for Cisco, Dell, F5 and Extreme Networks.
Award entries are determined by end-user nominations and webCRM was one of 50 CRM providers to be nominated for CRM Product of the Year. From those 50 only the eight receiving the highest number of nominations went through to the reader vote.
“It came as a complete surprise to me that we were one of the finalists,” says James. “We’re not as well-known as a Salesforce or Sugar so we work hard to prove ourselves to customers with no nonsense practical advice, and first rate implementation and support services. To know that we received so many unprompted nominations from customers is an enormous validation of our approach.”
webCRM received the largest number of votes of the eightfinalists to be named Network Computing’s CRM Product of the Year 2017.
“Choosing a CRM solution, whether on-premise or in the cloud, is a big decision for most customers,” explains Jørgen Rode Founder / CEO webCRM. “This award, with both nomination and outcome end-user determined, is customer validation that choosing webCRM is a safe choice.”
The awards were compared by former England cricket Captain, Chris Cowdrey, and were presented by Ray Smyth and Dave Bonner from Network Computing and Comedian Ian Stone.
