Cube Awards honour inventive FileMaker developers
Both private and public sector awarded for their use of FileMaker at the annual ceremony.
Yesterday the Cube Awards 2010 took place in central London and saw the winners toasted for their achievements.
The awards, run by FileMaker in partnership with IT PRO, aimed to celebrate the achievements of developers using FileMaker in inventive ways across the Northern Europe region, across both the public and private sectors.
Tony Speakman, director of FileMaker in the northern region, said: "The standard of this year's entries was extremely high, as was the volume of entries. Competition was very tight and the judging panel (including IT PRO editor Maggie Holland) found it extremely hard to select a clear winner for any of the categories."
But select they did. SWS Solutions took home the gong for best private sector solution with its Garage Assistant GA3, with the judges praising it as "impressive" in the way it helped grow a relatively small business.
However, the big winner of the night was Cordis Technologies, which won the prize for best public sector solution and the Winner of Winners' award for its collection management system at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London.
The judges said it "contemporised an old system to make it sophisticated, clear, intuitive and easy to use."
Cordis walked away with the two trophies and an iPad to sweeten their victory even further.
Although the companies didn't win awards, CJM Software, Unicol Engineering and Business Logical all got special mentions for their entries.
"It's fantastic to see the huge range of activities where FileMaker is making a difference, including, automotive, creative agencies, scientific organisations, educational establishments and commerce; it's a real testament to just how versatile FileMaker Pro really is," added Speakman.
