The K2 Quality Awards are in their twenty-first year, and they are among the most well respected and longest-standing awards in the accounting industry. In announcing this year’s award winners, Randy Johnston, shareholder and VP at K2 Enterprises, was quite pleased with the progress of automation. “The software publishers are working on productivity and end-user experience with improvements in their products.” according to Johnston.
K2 Enterprises prime award
In 2015, K2 Enterprises added a new overall award called the Prime award. Each year this award is given to one and only one company that fits the criteria below. If it is deemed that no company fits the criteria, then no award will be given. The Prime award is given to a company that is leading in almost every category listed below.
The following are key considerations used in voting for the Prime award:
- Reasonable management goals and expectations
- Long term stability in the accounting market
- Clear and honest communication with employees and market influencers
- High quality products
- Top shelf customer support
- Significant commitment to product development and product improvement
- Great management vision and direction for both current and future plans
IRIS Software Group Ltd. was selected as the recipient of the 2022 Prime award.
“IRIS has acquired leading companies and titles in the accounting profession”, said Brian Tankersley, Director of Strategic Relationships for K2 Enterprises. “The management vision expressed by Elona Mortimer-Zhika illustrates IRIS strategy for the accounting profession.”
