In keeping with the motto "be a part of IT," the German Mid-sized Companies Initiative selected the best software solutions in 41 categories. For its A+W Business Pro product, the software company A+W received the Innovation Award - IT 2014 in the ERP category – a nice reward for the A+W team, especially for the team of developers who have worked to make A+W Business Pro a unique, comprehensive ERP and production solution for small and mid-sized companies in the flat glass industry.
About 5000 IT companies competed for the Innovation Award - IT with their innovative products and solutions suitable for mid-sized companies - this was a new record. These outstanding companies' solutions were able to win over a well-known jury of experts composed of more than 100 scientists, industry experts, and professional journalists.
The focus of the Innovation Award - IT is not on the companies themselves, but rather on their products and services. Innovative and interesting solutions that distinguish themselves by providing especially great benefits and high functionality for mid-sized companies have the best chance to win.
In particular, companies with a limited advertising budget who do not engage in widespread PR and marketing campaigns as the giants of the software industry do have a unique opportunity with their participation in the Innovation Award - IT: they can make themselves and their innovative products known to a broad public.
A+W CEO Dr. Uwe Schmid: "We are proud of this award. It shows us that the investements in research and development in recent years finally pay off and that we can always offer our customers the most efficient and practical industry solutions."
Development Manager Josef Körner adds: "I am especially proud of my team, which worked with the necessary dash of pioneer spirit and many good ideas, but also with great effort and engagement to create a product specifically for mid-sized companies. The Innovation Award - IT will help us to get the word out about A+W Business Pro."
