TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectWise, developer of the leading service management software designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARS, ISVs and MSPs, today announced its ModernOffice Suite won two XChange XCellence Awards for XCellence in Quick Fire Sessions and XCellence in Software. The awards, presented at XChange 2013, were determined by more than 250 solution provider attendees and measure overall solution provider perceptions of vendor products, services, programs, and presentations. ConnectWise was also nominated for three other XChange XCellence Awards categories including XCellence in Service-Based Solutions, Best Demo Room and XCellence in Solutions Pavilion Booth Strategy.
"We are very excited the ModernOffice Suite has been recognized with two XChange XCellence Awards and a handful of nominations," said Jeannine Edwards, Director, ConnectWise Community. "The fact that these awards are determined by solution providers themselves makes the honor that much more special. It reaffirms the need in the industry that we are filling with the ModernOffice Suite and drives us to continue pushing the envelope with strategic innovation."
ModernOffice, which leverages seamless integration of three best-in-class platforms, ConnectWise (Professional Services Automation), LabTech Software (Remote Monitoring & Management) and Quosal (Quote & Proposal Automation), was honored for its ability to leverage automation and integration under one platform to deliver a true end-to-end IT lifecycle management solution to partners. Through strategic innovations, integrations, investments and acquisitions, ConnectWise is continuing to grow and expand the platform with the goal of creating a complete, end-to-end business solution for solution providers that is unmatched in the industry.
The ModernOffice Suite was named the winner in the XCellence in Quick Fire Sessions category – an honor given to the company that presented the most colorful, creative and informational pitch to attendees in just three minutes. ModernOffice also won the XCellence in Software category, an honor given to the company offering the most innovative software solutions within the solution provider industry.
"Solution providers are at the epicenter of a rapidly evolving IT landscape. Buyers are changing, business models are transforming and everyone is rethinking IT. To be successful, they need vendor partners who can provide the innovative tools and solutions needed to navigate through the most dynamic IT channel market in history," said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President of Strategic Content, UBM Tech Channel. "The winners of the XChange 2013 XCellence Awards have demonstrated that they understand what it takes for solution providers to succeed and are prepared to help them capitalize on emerging market opportunities."
