NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — International software awards program The SaaS Awards opens today for early entries, with a new recognition tier and a raft of new categories including ‘Best SaaS Product for Loyalty and Retention,’ and ‘Best SaaS Product for IT Management.’
The new ‘Finalists’ stage will recognize all of the organizations which progress beyond the initial Shortlist.
SaaS Awards head of operations James Williams said: "After a highly-subscribed Cloud Computing Awards program last year, our second awards program, the SaaS Awards, is back and accepting early entries.

This stage is intended to give added recognition and rewards to the leading innovators who just miss out on the top spot.
"There are also 14 new categories in verticals such as the construction and real estate industries, as well as more general areas such as content management – which itself includes areas such as proofreading, translation services, Optical Character Recognition, Document Control, Plagiarism Detection, Image Recognition and Digital Asset Management.
"We have also split our increasingly competitive Security category across three areas: Enterprise, SMB, and unusually for us, B2C.
"The judges look forward to assessing the very best software of 2022."
