Logos Bible Software 4 wins SIIA's prestigious CODiE Award
Since 1986, the SIIA's CODiE Awards program has showcased the software and information industry's finest products. The award holds the distinction of being the software industry's only peer-reviewed award as SIIA members are comprised of leading companies in the business software, digital content and education technology industries. Throughout it's history, this is the first time Bible study software has not only been named a finalist, but has also gone on to win the SIIA's CODiE Award in its category.
Judges put Logos 4 through a stringent review process consisting of evaluating product-specific material and online support articles and training videos. Finally, a live online product demonstration was coordinated so judges could see a first-hand demonstration before evaluating and scoring Logos 4. Part of the evaluation focused on the program's customization features, ease of use, navigation, richness and focus of search results, and use of graphics, among other components.
Based on the above, Logos Bible Software 4 seemed to be exactly what the Best Educational Reference Solution category was intended for. Among others in the same category, Logos 4 beat out NBC News Archives on Demand from NBC Learn.
With a streamlined user interface, Logos 4's fully integrated digital library, with over 12,000 available titles, allows for unprecedented depth of biblical studies in a fraction of the time of print-based research. Moreover, it contains detailed maps, infographics and one-of-a-kind databases, all of which enable a whole new level of Bible study. It then keeps one's study in sync across PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and online at Biblia.com.
"It is an honor to see Logos Bible Software be recognized by the SIIA as a leader in the technology community," said Logos Bible Software CEO, Bob Pritchett. "Winning the CODiE Award is a crowning achievement for an excellent product, but more so, for the world-class team here at Logos."
Some 425 products and services were first nominated this year. Then third-party judges reviewed and evaluated each item before determining finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and voted to select the winners.
Winning the 2011 CODiE Award puts Logos Bible Software in the company of other notable CODiE Award winners such as Adobe, Dell, Cision, Red Hat, SalesForce, Wall Street Journal Professional and Zendesk.
About the CODiE Awards
The CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose—to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement. http://www.siia.net/codies/2011
