[Amsterdam, November 21, 2023] – To inspire and connect, that is the purpose of organizing the annual Main Software 50 Awards year after year. Outstanding software companies are rewarded with much deserved recognition, while other outstanding companies are present to celebrate the winners as well as their own achievements, and benefit from the knowledge-sharing platform this prestigious occasion provides as a nice bonus. WoodWing Software, part of Main Capital's roster since 2020, proudly seized one of three Overall Champion spots in the award ceremony; a confirmation of the positive development over the last year, and the strength of the company and its employees.
The Main Software 50 Benelux Awards ceremony, known for bringing together passionate software professionals, took place at DeFabrique in Utrecht for the 12th consecutive year, on November 16. Software companies are often attributed for being the engine of the digital economy, and the fact that hundreds of companies register for the Main Software 50 competition each year is a testimony to this statement. A mere mention in the top 50 is already quite an achievement, let alone taking one of the top spots. Besides three Overall Champion awards, additional prizes go to the company that showed the highest growth, and the most successful 'small' company – a special category for companies with a revenue below the €1 million mark.
Ross Paterson, WoodWing's CEO, gave his opinion on what makes WoodWing a strong player in the software development sector: “The thing that makes WoodWing successful is the thing that makes a lot of organizations successful nowadays, which is our people. Not only the people on our payroll but also those working for our partners. That element really drives the value perception of our customers: the interaction of our salesforce with our prospects, the interaction of our support people with our customers, and the interaction of our users’ community with our products. All of that is the direct result of the quality of our people.”
