"The ISV Award is a vote of confidence from our customers for both the value of our GL Wand product and the ongoing quality of our support. Our team celebrates this level of customer acknowledgment and encouragement, which will help drive us to greater accomplishments next year."

The 2010 UKOUG Partner of the Year Awards took place on Thursday, October 7, at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London. Guy Browning, author of Office Politics and Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade, was in attendance as Guest Speaker at the black tie event, where Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards were presented in 19 categories.

For the ISV category, UKOUG encouraged those customers to vote who have purchased a product from an Oracle ISV Partner. In addition to voting on product quality, customers were asked to assess the value of services delivered and the vendor's relationship/client management skills.

"Excel4apps is once again honored to receive a prestigious UKOUG award from its loyal customers, and we sincerely thank them for trusting us to assist with their Oracle reporting needs," said Dean Jones, Director UK, for Excel4apps.
