Charmey, Switzerland – 03 March 2017 – Fookes Software Ltd. today announced its selection as a finalist in the 2017 European IT and Software Excellence Awards. The winners will be announced in an awards ceremony held in London on the 30th of March 2017.

Fookes Software was chosen as a finalist in the Software Innovation Solution of the Year category for the outstanding Aid4Mail solution provided to medical aid organization Médecins Sans Frontières (also known as “Doctors Without Borders”). Following its win at last year’s awards, this marks Fookes Software’s second nomination in the space of two years for these highly-respected awards.

“We have seen an even higher quality of entry this year,” said Editor of IT Europa and head panel judge John Garratt. “In some ways, IT transformation has been a well-kept secret and we aim to push out the core message in the coming year about just what the IT industry is capable of doing to a wider audience by highlighting some of the possibilities and potential contained in these awards.”

Now in its 9th year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards attracted over 500 entries from 28 European countries. The awards are given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, delivering better business, a clearer understanding of data, and more efficient and profitable outcomes.

The judges, with many decades of experience of IT industry involvement between them, arrived at a list of finalists that they believe truly reflects both the strength of Europe's IT industry and some of the changes in the direction occurring within it.

“We are excited and honored to be selected as a finalist for the second year running,” said Fookes Software founder and CEO Eric Fookes. “We loved helping Médecins Sans Frontières migrate their email from Thunderbird to Office 365. For us, it’s incredibly important to be flexible with our solutions to ensure we are serving our customers’ needs. For that to be recognized by an organization like IT Europa is fantastic.”
