Business Software Satisfaction Awards 2007: The Results


Business Software Satisfaction Awards More than 300 people gathered for a glittering ceremony at The Brewery in London on Tuesday 9 October for the 2007 Business Software Satisfaction Awards organised by Sift Media, publisher of TrainingZone.

The 2007 awards cover suppliers who serve members of all of Sift Media's online professional communities, including TrainingZone, HR Zone, AccountingWEB, FinanceWeek, BusinessZone, MyCustomer, UKBusinessForums and KnowledgeBoard.

Nearly 2,000 software users from all the sites took the time to tell us about the systems they used and what they thought of them and the awards and commendations that follow are based on their first-hand experiences. This makes the Business Software Satisfaction Awards a unique accolade and a truly independent and effective indicator of product and support quality.

The HR and training category winners are below. Well done to all involved. Photos of the event and a PDF download of our 2007 Software Satisfaction Annual will be available shortly from the Business Software Satisfaction Awards website.
