eCoach has been declared a finalist in the 2018-2019 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Cloud HR, Payroll or ERP Solution.

The cloud computing awards program celebrates success and innovation in the cloud computing industry. The awarding body accepts applications from organisations of any size worldwide, from start-ups to established multinationals.

eCoach CEO, Ryan Macpherson said: “Being shortlisted in the Best Cloud HR, Payroll or ERP Solution category for the 2018-19 Cloud Awards is a clear sign of our continued dedication to excellence and recognised innovation in the industry.”

Cloud Awards organiser Larry Johnson said: “As we reach the end of 2018 and the Cloud becomes an increasingly common currency, with its key importance in leveraging business goals becoming synonymous with business software and services itself, we have seen submissions from countless vertical industries alongside cloud-specific infrastructure and security applications.

“In such a competitive global marketplace, the need to not only use these technologies but to continue to innovate has grown ever-stronger. This year, the judges have had a more difficult time than ever in deciding which entrants should move forward to the next stage, and every submission displayed unique points of merit.

“Each entrant was worthy of a place on the shortlist, so making this cut signifies considerable focus on innovation and success.

“In 2019 the SaaS category has again seen an incredibly high volume of entrants, and those that could not find a place on the shortlist are encouraged to apply for the SaaS Awards next Spring, a software awards program and sister to the Cloud Awards which promises a host of vertical-specific categories promising even further recognition.

“We can only wait until 2019 to see which organisations emerge as final winners in their chosen Cloud Awards category.”

Hundreds of organisations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist here.

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 29 January 2019.
