Vancouver, BC, April 28, 2011 – Colligo Networks today announced that its Colligo Contributor Pro product was named as a Finalist in the Best of Tech·Ed 2011 awards program, in the SharePoint Administration category. The annual awards are presented by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine, DevProConnections and SharePointPro.
The Best of Tech·Ed 2011 awards recognize companies who offer innovative products for the industry. The judges reviewed 334 products and services submitted for the award and chose 47 finalists to be interviewed at the Microsoft Tech·Ed North America 2011 conference in Atlanta, Georgia on May 16, 2011. Winners will be announced at an invite only evening reception at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, May 18.
“We received a record number of nominations this year—more than 300—and determining an array of finalists from that large, diverse field was difficult,” said Jason Bovberg, Senior Editor at Windows IT Pro®. “The mix of products and services from year to year is ever-changing and exciting, and we feel that our 49 finalists represent highly distinguished products and services in their categories. We look forward to our show-floor interviews, which will lead to the determination of winners. We also look forward to determining a winner in our newest category, Best Cloud Computing Product/Service, which we’ll choose upon seeing the offerings at the show. For all categories, as always, our judging process involves three criteria: strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and value to customers. Our winners will be particularly strong in those areas.”
“It’s a real honor for Colligo Contributor Pro to be chosen as a Finalist in the Best of Tech·Ed 2011 Awards,” says Barry Jinks, Founder and CEO of Colligo Networks. “Industry recognition such as this is a direct result of the dedication of the entire Colligo team to build great SharePoint products that our customers love to use. This selection follows more industry accolades last week, as Colligo Contributor Pro won the Andy Dale SharePoint Award 2011 for the Best SharePoint Mobile or Offline Solution for the third consecutive year.”
Colligo Contributor Pro drives SharePoint adoption by enabling users to easily access, capture, and tag SharePoint content from popular desktop applications, including Microsoft Outlook and Windows Explorer. Information workers can instantly create, view, modify SharePoint documents, forms, lists, and metadata—online and offline—including the ability to drag-and-drop email and attachments directly from Outlook to SharePoint.
