Label and artwork management solution honored for UI/UX innovations in international software program
CHICAGO (August 7, 2018) – BLUE Software, a provider of label and artwork management (LAM) technology, was announced today as a finalist in the 2018 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Awards Program in the “Best UX/UI/Design in a SaaS Product” category.
With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the program accepts entries worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Australasia, United Kingdom and EMEA. The SaaS Awards program is now in its third year of recognizing and celebrating innovation in software.
“BLUE’s SaaS model provides companies of all sizes the opportunity to improve their artwork asset management, reduce overall time-to-market and enhance their ROI,” said Ali Moosani, president of BLUE Software. “The User Interface and User Experience within BLUE caters to a creative audience, offering fully-customizable environments that cater to users’ specific needs, processes and workflows; it’s a truly dynamic experience.”
The BLUE UI empowers customers to move product data, such as ingredients, nutrition, allergy information, images and other resources, directly from manufacturers to consumers and retailers. Innovative features continue to be added to meet client needs, including Adobe Illustrator automated artwork, Dynamic Workflow capabilities for adjusting tasks in real time independently of other workflow steps, and fully-integrated Text and Image Compare for automated proofreading and display of differences. Users can create customized environments based on what each user is authorized to access, enable users to work in their native languages, easily zoom in to view the details on any label, manage high-resolution graphics, automatically build digital briefs, view reference files during proofing sessions, enjoy real-time updates rather than requiring page refreshes and quickly access the project map to assess status.
“We have seen a huge variety of submissions from organizations around the world that seek to provide essential productivity tools to their users,” said SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson. “All entrants demonstrated considerable commitment to innovation in software solutions, and to make the shortlist itself is an achievement. With such a concentrated level of success in the shortlist, our judges have a significant task ahead of them to arrive at our final award winners.”
Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 and the program will return in Spring 2019. More than 300 organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australasia, the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East.
