Over 250 executives worldwide participated in the judging process from May through early August.

The Golden Bridge and Stevie Award achievements are the result of Smartware Group’s recent redesign of its flagship solution, Bigfoot CMMS, and website, The new fluid, parallax design of Bigfoot CMMS versions Enterprise and Enterprise+ is adaptive to natural user scrolling navigation, while reducing the number of keystrokes and clicks needed to access essential data.

The site’s Portal tab gives clients direct access to their Bigfoot CMMS accounts, as well as other add-on solutions and Professional Services, such as training and Jumpstart Consulting. Both Bigfoot CMMS and its website represent a new paradigm in the conservative CMMS market.
