The votes are in, and CFO’s readers have chosen. Chosen their favorite service providers and software products, that is — accounting firms and banks, CRM and ERP software, benefits and management consulting firms, health and property/casualty insurers, and more.
We launched the inaugural CFO Readers’ Choice Awards in March, inviting readers via email and CFO.com to vote for their favorite candidates in 20 categories. To keep the ballot manageable, we generally listed the top 10 to 15 products or providers in each category as measured by appropriate criteria, such as market share, revenues, customers, premiums written, plan participants, and so on. We also took into account the judgment of top technology consultants. Sometimes there were more choices, other times fewer — there are only four Big Four accounting firms, after all.
In all cases, we relied on independent sources to supply the criteria for inclusion. Readers could also write in their favorites if they were not listed on the ballot.
In the end, we received more than 850 ballots from CFOs, finance executives, and other finance professionals, although not everyone voted in every category. To find out who won, click here.
