Aspire Technologies, Inc. Named Winner in The Sixth Annual Users Choice Awards:

Orlando, FL, June 2, 2004— Aspire Technologies, Inc. has been named the winner in The Sixth Annual Users Choice Awards, sponsored by CRMAdvocate.  Aspire Technologies’ product QuoteWerks was entered in the category of Proposal Management.  This is the third consecutive year that QuoteWerks has won a Users Choice Award.

The Users Choice Awards is the only awards program in which customer relationship management (CRM) products are judged by the end user.  Awards will be presented throughout 2004 representing applications and services in the areas of Contact Center , Sales, Marketing, Service/Support and CRM Suites:

QuoteWerks™ sales quoting software empowers businesses to increase their productivity and close more sales by simplifying and speeding up their price quoting/estimating process in the office and on the road.  QuoteWerks communicates with leading contact management software such as ACT!™, GoldMine®, salesforce.com®, SalesLogix®, Outlook®, Maximizer®, KnowTia®, and TeleMagic® so customers can seamlessly use QuoteWerks with their existing customer management systems. Thus, the hassle of retyping customer information is eliminated.  Orders can be exported to leading accounting software like QuickBooks® and Peachtree®.  The award-winning program runs on Windows®.  It truly redefines and revolutionizes the sales quoting process.  

For as little as USD 189.00 a business can get started with QuoteWerks.  In today’s fast paced market if a business takes too long to get a price quote into a potential customer’s hands, that business stands a greater chance of losing that sale.  

In there sixth year, the Users Choice Awards were the first CRM awards to utilize the users as the judges to identify the products providing the most value.  RealMarket was an original founder of the awards and now serves as the program administrator. “In these days where proving ROI is imperative, there is no greater testimony than this.  These winners are obviously doing a number of things well to receive such high praise from their customers” stated Gary Lemke, President of RealMarket.
