Central Desktop Wins Silver Stevie(R) Award for New Product or Service of the Year in 2013 American Business Awards(SM)

Central Desktop was honored with the Silver Stevie(R) Award for “New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Collaboration/Social Networking Solution” for its SocialBridge(R) cloud-based collaboration platform for marketers.

This award is the third Stevie win in 2013 for Central Desktop. In June, the company was also awarded the Gold Stevie(R) Award in the “Customer Service Team of the Year” category and the Silver Stevie(R) Award in the “Customer Service Department of the Year” category. More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

According to Kristy McKnight, Central Desktop’s vice president of products, “We’re thrilled that our SocialBridge collaboration platform was recognized with a Silver Stevie. We’ve spent a lot of time listening to, learning from and working with leading marketing and agency execs, then focusing on creating product enhancements and innovations that directly address the daily demands of their teams. It’s very gratifying to be awarded for making a tangible, headache-easing, cost-saving impact on our clients’ businesses.”

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 320 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process. Details about The American Business Awards and the lists of Stevie Award winners who were announced on September 16 are available at www.stevieawards.com/aba.
