The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The CODiEs are the industry's only peer–recognized awards program. Business technology leaders including senior executives, analysts, media, consultants, and investors evaluate assigned products during the first–round review which determines the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
“The demo worked beautifully, and I can see how much more intuitive the DAM tool is than competitors',” said one of Widen's SIIA–appointed judges. “â¦[The] product is user–centric, sooo easy to use and integrates with other (multiple options) toolsâ¦[It's a] very smart suite for non–IT folks to use from day one.” The judge also commended Widen for having “Tremendous support for every aspect of implementation.”
“Over the past year, we have launched new applications and expanded our line of business services to make Collective the world's leading DAM experience,” said Widen VP of Marketing Jake Athey. “We have an independent, freedom–centered culture where employees are free to experiment and push the envelope.
