NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Yocale, the perfect way to discover and book appointments with local businesses, while providing online appointment booking, scheduling, and business management for SMB's, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist in the 2016 SaaS Awards Program in the category Best SaaS Product for Small Business / SMBs.
With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australia, UK, and EMEA. 2016 is the inaugural year for The SaaS Awards program, which is partnered with the annual Cloud Awards, now entering its sixth year.
Categories for the 2016 awards program include Best SaaS Product for Small Business, Best Enterprise-Level SaaS Product, and Best Data-Driven SaaS Product.
Arash Asli, Co-founder and CEO of Yocale said: "SaaS technologies sit in an incredibly competitive global marketplace, so for Yocale to be shortlisted in the Best SaaS Product for Small Business / SMBs category reflects a huge achievement for our team. We have been able to innovate and give our clients what they asked for, and our product shows that."
SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: "The SaaS Awards, unlike the long-running Cloud Awards, which takes a more holistic approach to celebrating excellence in cloud services, is a recognition platform specifically for software solutions. Frankly, it's about time: in a maturing international marketplace for cloud services, SaaS has proven to be the poster boy for leveraging thin-client technologies, while ensuring end-users are always working at the cutting edge."
Hundreds of organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe and the Middle East.
