OnStrategy Business Software Nominated for People’s Choice Award

OnStrategy’s web-based strategic business planning application, OnStrategy, has been nominated for a People’s Choice award by The International Business Awards. Votes will be accepted through the month of May and all voters will be entered into a drawing to win one of two gift cards.

Reno, NV (PRWEB) May 6, 2009 — Strategic business planning software developer OnStrategy announced today that the company’s web application OnStrategy was nominated for a People’s Choice award in the category, New Version of a Favorite Software. Voting will continue from now until June 1, and all voters will be entered into a drawing to win one of two $1,000 gift cards.

OnStrategy guides companies through developing strategic business plans and monitoring their performance throughout the year. Affordable and simple to operate, OnStrategy is an internet-based application that users can access from any web browser from anywhere in the world. Organizations who log into OnStrategy learn strategic planning best practices from a series of videos, tutorials and an intuitive automated system. After building plans, organizations are encouraged to stay involved through a series of reminders and the ability to output professional reports on demand.

Erica Olsen, Vice President of OnStrategy, says that the company is honored by the nomination. “Our development teams worked hard to put out a bevy of features this last year in response to customer input.” According to Olsen, 2008 saw some of the most advanced revisions the system has implemented in order to make strategic planning easier and more accessible to organizations.

Olsen says that one of the most asked-for updates in the system allowed for reordering users’ set strategic objectives. “Once a plan is created,” says Olsen, “organizations can now drag and drop objectives into new strategic areas.” The new system comes with additional reports, including roadmaps that display strategic overviews and scorecards for monthly strategy updates. Within the list of updates is also term customization that adjusts to different regions’ currencies and terms for strategic planning language.

To vote for OnStrategy, visit the People’s Choice Awards website. Winners will be determined in early June and honored at the seventh annual Stevies Awards gala in New York on June 22.
