SaaS Awards

If you're a SaaS company using your own software and experiencing great performance, what are good awards to keep an eye out for?

From the perspective of looking for new software to cover, the awards I've always kept an eye on the most are:

  • Webby, which often highlights innovative designs and takes on web ideas, even if it's not purely focused on SaaS and software even.
  • Techcrunch Disrupt's awards which often show emerging new software (and formerly their Crunchie award, which seemed to have even more signal on breakout apps).
  • YC's Demo Day, which shows ideas and trends that may end up being big over the next few years.
  • Apple's Design Awards at WWDC, which again while not focused on SaaS do highlight best-in-breed software and the most popular software trends.

Thanks! I was looking for existing software that can receive recognition for stellar figures.

Ahh, so basically, which software products received an award that their teams felt like was very meaningful?

I'll use Sprinklr as the example - we use our own software for care and marketing. Are there awards where we can be recognized for the achievements associated with customer care?

Ahhhhh that makes sense—and honestly, I think there should be more awards here. It's surprising how few there are.

So, aside from awards from software category sites (which typically are based on rankings in their platforms), there is the Shorty awards for customer support, though that's focused on social media support. On the enterprise side there's JD Power, though I doubt that has focus you're looking for :)

This is a great question though, surely there are more out there to keep an eye on and try to win.

Thanks for the insight! Yes, not finding many, and those in customer support require a fee to enter -- not a fan of pay to play!

Absolutely! Which ones were pay-to-enter?
