"RedCarpet was built to eliminate the inefficiencies that HR professionals and managers face during onboarding, while catering to employee experience," said Flip Filipowski, executive chairman and CEO of SilkRoad technology. "The software simplifies complexities like compliance and paperwork, and engages employees on day one. It's a critical part of talent management, and it is an honor to be recognized by the CODiEs as one of the leading solutions helping organizations improve their onboarding experience."
The CODiE Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now SIIA, so pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards has carried out the same purpose -- to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
Rhianna Collier, Vice President of the SIIA Software Division, commended the companies that qualified as finalists: "All of this year's CODiE Awards finalists should feel proud of making it to this stage. We're pleased with all of this year's nominees, and the finalists reflect excellence and innovation in the business software industry."
The winners will be announced on Thursday, May 10, at the CODiE Awards Presentations held in conjunction with the SIIA's annual All About the Cloud conference.
