February 16, 2012 (Kitchener, ON) - - IGLOO Software, the leading provider of social business software in the cloud, today announced that it has been named 'Best New Vendor' at the eChannelNEWS' (eCN) Reseller Choice Awards. With over 800 Canadian IT resellers casting votes, IGLOO was recognized for its SaaS-based collaboration suite that powers the modern intranet or extranet.
The Reseller Choice Awards, now in its fifth year, is among the most comprehensive IT surveys in Canada. Over 500 vendors were nominated, including SalesForce.com, Google, Cisco, SAP and Microsoft, and each reseller voted for their favorite vendor in each of the over 80 categories.
"This is an exciting accomplishment for IGLOO and more validation that cloud collaboration is the future of the enterprise," said Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO Software. "Forward-thinking VARs understand that incorporating cloud services into their portfolio to meet accelerating customer demand will be essential to their success and, for many, IGLOO and social collaboration is a low-risk entry point."
This announcement follows recent news of IGLOO's Series B financing and record-breaking growth, driven by a significant increase in customer demand for cloud and a rapidly expanding partner network. In 2011, IGLOO experienced an 80% increase in license revenue, 60% of which was influenced by partners. The current partner ecosystem spans advisors, consultants, resellers and solution providers.
