SOFTWARE PLANNER IS 2007 CODIE AWARDS FINALIST
CATEGORY: BEST PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOLUTION

Pragmatic Software Company (http://www.pragmaticsw.com) announced that its flagship product, Software Planner Professional (http://www.SoftwarePlanner.com/Pro), is among the top 5 finalists in the coveted 2007 Codie Awards for the Best Project Management Solution category.   Over 1,000 software products were nominated for the Codie Awards, so the finalists are among a very distinguished group.  

ColorIn 1986, the Excellence in Software Awards program was established by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that the pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. In 1993, the Excellence in Software Awards became the Codie Awards (http://www.siia.net/Codies/2007/finalists.asp). The Codie Awards holds the distinction of being the only peer-recognition awards program of its kind in the industry, providing a unique opportunity for companies to earn the praise of their competitors. As SIIA evolves to serve the needs of its members, the Codie Awards program, now in its twenty-first year, remains the standard bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in the Information Technology industry.

"The 2007 Codie Finalists represent real winners, even at this stage of the contest", said Ken Wasch, SIIA President.  "Competition is fiercer than ever and that makes selection as a Codie Finalist a major achievement.  All the companies on this year's list should feel justifiably proud of their recognition.", adds Wasch.  The Codie Awards finalists were announced on January 8, 2007.  The Codie Award winners will be announced on April 17, 2007 at the 22nd Annual Codie Awards Gala being held in San Francisco, CA. 

“We are very excited about becoming a Codie Awards finalist", says Steve Miller, President/CEO of Pragmatic Software.  "Being recognized by our competition and peers is especially great, as it is a testament to the robustness, flexibility and adaptability of Software Planner.  Becoming a Codie Awards finalist combined with Software Planner winning the 2006 Testers Choice Award speaks volumes about how our product is being received in the market place, adds Miller."
