HansaWorld has won the Accountancy Age Award for Mid-range Software Package of the Year for the second year in a row, with the judges calling the product “really innovative and incredibly wide-ranging”, adding that “HansaWorld shows excellent overall functionality with very positive customer feedback".
The judges also particularly praised HansaWorld’s ease of use.
“The accountancy profession is traditionally very conservative,” notes Kevin Clarke, HansaWorld SA country manager. “We’re delighted to have convinced the hardest people to convince that our innovative technology is a good thing. We’re especially proud that our track record and constant innovation have enabled us to win two years running.”
HansaWorld has recorded between 5% and 15% growth each year since 1995, and the software – which is available on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms – is known for its exceptional functionality and breadth. 95% of implementations are completed on time and under budget, and upgrades are released every nine months.
Customers interviewed to support HansaWorld’s nomination said they most valued its flexibility, ease of use, high level of integration and value for money. Matti Zadok of Experian Integrated Marketing said the firm was “not aware of any other system on which we could have achieved so much for anything like the money we have paid for HansaWorld.”
“Everything works in a truly integrated manner,” says Roger Cherowbrier of Topcon. “We are very impressed with the different levels of analysis offered by HansaWorld. We can assess the turnover and profitability of everything we do.”
