The IQNavigator solution also allows efficient and effective management of the entire extended workforce – all types of non-employees such as temporary workers, consultants and outsourced personnel – for compliance, visibility, security and safety.

Martin, chief operating officer of IQNavigator. “We are pleased that our efforts and innovations to provide clients with the tools to automate and improve this key area of operations, including actionable real-time intelligence to control costs and increase quality, are once again being recognized.”
One hundred thirty-one nominations from 98 companies were selected as CODiE Award finalists from among 395 total nominations. Nominated products underwent an extensive review by judges via live demonstration, trial product access and analysis of product documentation. A list of the finalists – all of whom are considered among the best in the business or education software industry – can be found at http://www.siia.net/codies/2011/finalists.asp. Finalists will be reviewed by SIIA members who will vote for the winners in the 26 categories through April 29. The winners will be announced on May 25th at the CODiE Awards Luncheon during the SIIA All About the Cloud conference in San Francisco.
The CODiE Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now SIIA – the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries. The awards initially began as a way for pioneers of the then-nascent software industry to evaluate and honor each other’s work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program 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.
