Best Non-Accounting Cloud or Banking App | Software Awards 2020 shortlistby
The Non-Accounting Cloud or Banking App category in the Software Awards for Accounting Excellence 2020 was once again a fierce fight.
The Non-Accounting Cloud or Banking App category is a catch-all designed to showcase products that don't fit into traditional accounting categories and give them a chance to shine too.
Bringing together contenders from banking, R&D tax credits, the payroll world and online finance, this award is taking on a fintech flavour that is likely to become more common in the years to come. The full 2020 shortlist includes:
It's a diverse mix. BrightPay Connect is an online payroll portal to communicate with and share documents with employees, while Satago combines free reports and contact management tools for practice managers with access to online finance. Cashplus and Countingup represent the digital banking community.
Chaser narrowly outstripped Satago in last year's awards to take the 2019 Non-Accounting Cloud App category - the third time in a row. But with no Chaser in the shortlist for 2020, who will take the crown this time out?
Come back on Tuesday, 1 December 2020 when we announce the winner of this year's Non-Accounting and Banking App of the Year Award.
