Best practice management software | Software Awards 2020 shortlistby
The Practice Management Software category in the Software Awards for Accounting Excellence 2020 was once again a fierce fight.
Practice management software has been through the wringer this year as Covid-19 monopolised the profession's attention during the traditional spring shopping season for practice software. Nevertheless, two newcomers have broken through to join the shortlist for this year's contenders.
While there's been little time for planning and implementing new systems and workflows, practices very quickly discovered their weakspots when they had to co-ordinate their teams remotely without being able to hand across a file or shout across the office.
The 2020 voting turnout figures backed claims from specialist online vendors that cloud solutions have gained more ground on the traditional desktop names during the Covid-19 crisis. But will that translate through to the vital customer satisfaction ratings on which the awards are decided? The full 2020 shortlist includes:
To give an idea of how competitive this category has become, AccountacyManager, BTCSoftware and Senta have each won the best practice management software award in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively.
This year, Satago and Glide have joined the race. Glide is one of pioneering online practice management software developers, who all appeared to have prospered this year. Satago is a different matter - more of a fintech-meets-practice management hybrid.
To find out who's going to win this intensely competitive race, come back on Tuesday, 1 December 2020 when we announce the winner of this year's Practice Management Software of the Year Award.
The race for practice management kudos isn't over, though. While the Practice Management category gives specialist developers like AccountancyManager, Glide, Senta and Satago a chance to shine, the more established names within the practice software market will be back shortly to contest the Practice Suite category where practice management functionality links to accounts production and tax tools.
Tune in on Thursday to discover which applications make it through to the Practice Suite of the Year shortlist.
