Business Software Satisfaction Awards 2007 - The results
More than 300 people gathered at The Brewery in London on Tuesday 9 October for the Business Software Satisfaction Awards 2007 organised by Sift Media.
The 2007 awards cover suppliers who serve members of all of Sift Media's online professional communities - AccountingWEB.co.uk, FinanceWeek.co.uk, BusinessZone.co.uk, UK Business Forums, MyCustomer.com, TrainingZone, HRZone and KnowledgeBoard.com.
Nearly 2,000 software users 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.

Business Software Satisfaction Survey methodology
The 2007 Business Software Satisfaction Awards are based on an online survey that drew nearly 2,000 responses from Sift Media's portfolio of professional online communities - AccountingWEB.co.uk, FinanceWeek.co.uk, MyCustomer.com, TrainingZone.co.uk, HRZone.co.uk, BusinessZone.co.uk, UKBusinessForums.co.uk and KnowledgeBoard.com.
Survey participants were asked to rate their systems in different functional categories, as well as the resellers who implemented the systems. To ensure that the nominations were based on statistically significant samples, those listed here are vendors who achieved the highest ratings from more than 5% of the category sample. Those suppliers who did not achieve the 5% threshold, but scored higher than the category average have been acknowledged with "honourable mentions".
