AvePoint’s DocAve Software Platform Wins Gold Medal for Best Microsoft SharePoint Product from Windows IT Pro Community

“2012 Community Choice Awards” recognizes AvePoint’s products for governance, infrastructure management, and compliance in five separate categories

Jersey City, New Jersey — November 21, 2012 — AvePoint, leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced that its DocAve Software Platform was named as a gold medal winner of the “2012 Community Choice Awards” in the Best SharePoint Product category by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro magazine.

“Being recognized by the Windows IT Pro community with these honors offers even more evidence that the global SharePoint community continues to stand behind AvePoint’s decade-plus commitment to not just meeting, but exceeding the needs of its more than 10,000 customers and ever-growing partner ecosystem,” said Co-CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang. “As needs evolve and challenges arise, AvePoint’s enterprise-ready products and global, live 24/7 support are here to ensure organizations’ business goals are achieved on SharePoint each day.”

In addition to winning the gold medal in the Best SharePoint Product category, AvePoint’s products also won awards in the following categories:

“For our 2012 Community Choice Awards, we continued our unique process of letting the tech community both nominate and vote for their favorite products,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro. “We don’t just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Pro, and Dev Pro awards programs ensure a breadth of inclusion in the surveys. The winners of these awards are truly the community favorites. We want to congratulate the companies who deliver these outstanding products to consumers: They definitely stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”
