The Voting Process
In putting together the category listings and the Readers Choice Awards 2013 voting form, the editorial team scanned the market, canvassed members of the user and vendor communities, and directly solicited nominations from the vendors or service providers themselves. Then came the qualification process—the team went through the list of nominations and made certain that each solution, package or vendor belongs to the category it was put up for.
After this exercise, the final list of solutions, packages or organisations were put onto the e-voting ballots for each product category, which were then made ‘live’ on the Web.
Our readers—a demographic that basically spans the broad spectrum of this nation’s most progressive all the way through most conservative information and communication technology professionals—vote.
Ultimately, as with all other editions of the Readers Choice Awards, the readers of our magazine in this country chose the award winners.
