I actively participated in voting for Yola in several nominations and heartily congratulate Yola for winning in Software - Saas and Consulting nominations: http://www.supportawards.org/Winners .
But something went wrong in "Hosting"... I have sent to the organizers the following message:
------------
http://www.supportawards.org/Contact Sept., 22

My posting concerns this year Annual R.E.C.S.S. awards. Really, nice job done! Hope this project will go on through years to come, and your objectivity and authority will heighten even more.

But what happened with voting in "hosting" category? What does it mean - that "voting was inconclusive"? I am customer of Yola and expected that they will be winners in this category also. Very distressing, very-very... :(

No answer yet...
Does anybody knows what happened there with "Hosting"? I guess, Yola had good chances to be winner there also.

Hi Vitality

I just read the email myself and I am trying to absorb the news! Very exciting.

Thank you very much for your participation and congratulations. We are very grateful to our customers who voted for us and will be posting a message of thanks shortly.

I would just like to tell everyone that we are big fans of the RECSS awards because we believe that customers deserve awesome service, and any award designed to incentivise companies to do better in this regard gets our vote!

We would like to assure everyone that we fully accept the decision of the contest organizers regarding the hosting category. If there was any doubt about the outcome then we believe that the right thing was done, because the integrity of the award itself is more important to us than the opportunity to win a particular category.

We feel like winners today and every day when we get to come to work and interact with people like yourselves!

Thanks everyone!!!

Yes, Monique... And my second baffling issue is - why this year they did not awarded the "Best agent" to you, as it was done last year. For sure, they have place to grow. Wish you to be winner next 2011 competition. Good luck to you and to all your Yola colleagues!

Thanks for the compliment, but I think we lost out to some VERY worthy competitors in that category :)

No. Situation is more opaque. They also failed to award the title "best" to all agents. Compare: at 2009 competition they gave Companies and Agents but this year - only Companies. And with no comments. Something went wrong. I would ask them - what, but they did not responded to my first inquiry. If you will find the answer - please, inform us. And it is also very interesting - if really they had much more worthy competitors. As for me, I think, you at Yola work just perfectly. Maybe other companies send to their customers bread and butter... or some pretty little souvenirs... ;)?

Monique, here is the answer to "Hosting" issue: http://www.supportawards.org/blog/?p=... -

"In the case of the hosting category a winner could not be selected because when reviewing the votes, there were multiple questionable votes that pointed at gaming the voting system. This isn’t allowed with R.E.C.S.S. in order to be fair for all companies in all categories. Because of this, I removed the category altogether instead of randomly deducing a winner".

Yola is the easiest web site to post your business. I have tried other websites and I had a hard time with my webpage. If anyone wants to start a business and create your web page please go to yola.com and you will not be sorry that you can count on. Thanks Yola.
