Teamstudio Announces Winners of the 2009 Spotlight Awards

Lotusphere, Orlando, FL - January 20, 2009

Teamstudio announced today the winners of this year's Teamstudio Spotlight Awards Contest.

The contest, in its second year, was created to raise awareness of how great, relevant and effective Lotus Notes applications can be. Entrants were asked to initially submit a brief write-up about their applications, which were then rated on 5 criteria: (1) complexity of task performed, (2) degree of automation, (3) size of user community, (4) business value, and (5) creativity and innovation of design. The judging panel comprised of industry experts Bill Buchan, Bruce Elgort, Joe Litton, Julian Robichaux and Craig Schumann then selected 3 finalists to demonstrate their applications to determine top winners.

The winning entry, eSurvey, was developed and submitted by Theo Heselmans of Belgium for Ernst & Young. This survey application impressed the judges with its complete functionality, attractive and intuitive UI. The elegant design enabled end-users to efficiently generate and deploy polished surveys to their audience--as well as generate comprehensive response reports--with maximum ease and flexibility.

Second place went to the Mail File Management solution created by an internal project team for a large insurance and financial management company. This application and its implementation effectively tackled the challenge of removing unnecessary mail while flagging and retaining needed documents, ensuring their integrity and encoding them for easy reference.

Matti Lattu of Heeros Systems Oy in Finland placed third with his submission of Heeros Systems Financial Management Software, an application that efficiently manages internal invoice processing through an electronic workflow including scanning, OCR, Notes client and web browser interfaces and integration with ERP systems.

Honorable mentions included Eric D. Mack and Ian Armstrong of ICA.COM, Inc, for their eProductivity application --a Notes-based tool aligned with David Allen's book "Getting Things Done" (GTD) that helps the user to incorporate GTD processes into daily routine. (Overview) Also receiving an honorable mention was Thomas Mayerl of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime for the Office's Workflow Engine, which used a series of Notes forms to automate the generation of workflow applications, streamlining application development and deployment.

Contest winners and their applications will be featured in a special edition DominoPower article during February 2009.

Teamstudio is excited to recognize all contest winners, honorable mentions, and entrants for their outstanding applications developed using Lotus Notes. Information about entering the 2010 Teamstudio Spotlight Awards will become available on the Teamstudio website during October of 2009.
