Simpplr honored as Gold Stevie Award Winner in 2020 American Business Awards

By Hani Khan

Simpplr was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Collaboration/Social Networking Solution category in The 18th Annual American Business Awards®! 

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

Simpplr was nominated in the Collaboration/Social Networking category for Collaboration/Social Networking Solution. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

Don’t just take Simpplr’s word on why our solution takes the best approach to intranets, take a look at what anonymous judges said about the platform that ultimately awarded us as a Gold Winner. 

While collaboration and social networking tools aren’t new, most solutions haven’t been able to address today’s new reality of remote work. An anonymous judge stated, “With a dedicated research team to solve these challenges in a modern, distributed workplace intranet Simpplr aims to address the root causes of intranet failure. Have launched truly innovative products such as the industry’s first Auto-Governance Engine, which uses backend AI technology and analytics for intranet governance.”

The Simpplr platform requires no training and is built for business users to administer. A judge said, “This is a much needed tool to consolidate information across the enterprise. Oftentimes one of two things happen, an intranet is built and then not properly maintained or not built because the level of effort and expertise is not available. Simpplr seems to solve these challenges better than anything I’ve seen to date.” 

Oftentimes, intranets can become content dumping ground and classic CMS approaches lack controls to prevent intranets from becoming a junk drawer. A judge agreed with our approach, “Simpplr collaboration solution looks promising with easy deployable and integrated product. The idea of using AI technology and analytics to prevent the intranet from becoming a content dumping ground is exceptional. Customer adaptability looks good. Looking forward to new features.” 

Managing a distributed workforce comes with a set of challenges with the most coming being keeping employees engaged and connected. Simpplr addresses this by connecting employees with a virtual workplace and a judge stated, “A great collaboration tool for the companies that are globally distributed! It has the seamless integration of top cloud storage platforms, customizable UI based on the region etc.”
