Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs selected International Stevie winners from among the Finalists, which were determined by volunteer judges around the world during two months of preliminary judging.

This honoring is a clear message that our multi-touch software product Snowflake Suite is an unique and outstanding product and we are glad that this is emphasized through this recognition.

I'm looking forward to receive the Stevie Finalist certificate and attend the gala awards dinner in New York on September the 14th."
