SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 25, 2013) - Today, Nimble was named a finalist in two categories of the prestigious Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards. The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for 27 years. The awards have over 75 categories and are organized by industry focus of Content, Education and Software. Nimble is named as a finalist in two categories: Best Relationship Management Solution, and Best Social Business Solution.
Nimble is a social relationship management system for businesses, teams and sales professionals to help them transform their social conversations and communities into business opportunities. Nimble intelligently opens a whole new channel for companies to engage customers in a two-way dialogue, combining the power of traditional CRM, classic contact management, and social media into a simple, affordable web-based social selling solution.
"The CODiE Awards were extremely competitive this year, and companies with innovative products and services certainly captured the judges' attention," said Michael Fauscette, Group Vice President, Software Business Solutions at International Data Corporation (IDC), and judge for the event. "Nimble is a product designed specifically to embed a person's social footprint right into a contact record -- what Nimble calls 'social contact management.' Clearly, this forward-thinking approach has a role to play in today's social selling model."
"It's an honor to have been selected as a finalist by SIIA's prestigious software industry award," said Jon Ferrara, CEO of Nimble. "The CODiE Awards are uniquely important to us as they are decided by volunteer software industry peer judges. Being selected in both Best Relationship Management Solution and Best Social Business Solution categories is extremely exciting."
Winners will be announced during a special Awards luncheon on May 9 in San Francisco during the industry's most comprehensive ISV conference, All About the Cloud.
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. The first round review of all nominees includes industry executives and analysts, representatives of media outlets, bloggers, and investors. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
