Excellence in Technology Award winners pass that test with flying colours," said Rachel Cooke, chief operating officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

"An Excellence in Technology Award also validates the vision of the technology development team, the wisdom of the company's investment in the solution, and the value the technology brings to the end-user," said Mike Cooke, chief executive officer of Brandon Hall Group.
