The Meridian Awards, presented by Accountex in partnership with AccountingWEB, are presented to a prestigious few vendors in the accounting technology space who have displayed excellence beyond their peers in a given award category. There are only 4 awards being given in 2016, by an elite group of thought leaders and Managing Partners of firms. The limited number of awards set the Meridians apart in a class of their own as there is no recognition for 2nd place or runner up. Only the best of the best are honored on an annual basis.
The Best User Interface Meridian award is awarded to the app with the most user-friendly interface. Ease of use, beauty, design, responsiveness, and speed.
