Colligo Contributor Pro selected by IT community from thousands of nominated products

Vancouver, BC, December 9, 2009Colligo Networks Inc., a leader in SharePoint® client solutions, today announced that its Colligo Contributor Pro product was named as a silver medal winner for “Best SharePoint Product” in the 2009 Community Choice Awards by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro magazine. The winning products in each category are both nominated and selected based on individual voting by IT professionals.

Colligo Contributor Pro is the ultimate desktop integration for SharePoint and enables users to easily access, modify, and create SharePoint content through three desktop interfaces: (1) a standalone desktop client for instant SharePoint access, both online and offline, (2) an Add-In for Microsoft Outlook for 2-way access, email drag and drop and automatic metadata capture, and (3) a Windows Explorer extension for seamlessly linking folders on a users file system with SharePoint document libraries.

“The 2009 Community Choice Awards had a record number of entries this year. Thousands of products were nominated by our audience of IT professionals. Peer-to-peer product and service recognition is the ultimate goal that all market players have, but it can be difficult to achieve,” said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director at Penton Media. “Our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine communities even the playing field by calling out their favorite products based on performance and service. We counted only those votes accompanied by a valid and unique email address, thereby preventing multiple entries per person. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”

“We are extremely pleased to have won this important award and even more so since it is based entirely on voting from the IT community itself,” said Barry Jinks, Founder and CEO, Colligo Networks. “We hear all the time from customers about how much they love Contributor Pro and it’s gratifying when they take the time to register and vote for our product in a competition like this. This award really reflects the dedication and effort of the entire Colligo team in building products that customers use and benefit from on a daily basis.”
