Original Post

I wanted to respond to the "Best Software & Services Providers" Award.  It's my understanding and I could be wrong, is that a dealer survey is sent to "x" dealers with the above questions.

There were four nominees that I heard of and they were:

  • ACDI
  • FM Audit
  • Paper Cut
  • Square 9

Where is DocuWare, Nuance, Print Audit, PSIGEN, MWAI and the others?  Which got me to thinking.  Is Cannata using the same pool of dealers every year for the voting?  I'm thinking maybe yes, because these players in the nominees seem to be the same every year.  I'd have to go back to research, but it's just a thought and maybe the reason Rick Taylor has won many many times in a row.  Comments?

I agree Rick Taylor has done a superb job at KM but I think he does win it every year. Rightfully so in my opinion, but I also believe Cannata uses the same dealers every year. Since I met them a couple years ago and we use 4 or 5 partners on the lists now we have been included in the voting for the last 2 years. 

Ty for the comment,  I think the same about Taylor.  So, unless those dealers change who they use as third party supplies, none of the other will ever get on the list.
