Coats Digital is delighted to announce that its unique, industry-changing time-cost benchmarking solution, GSDCost, has secured its place as a finalist in the prestigious 2023 SaaS Awards programme, competing in four award categories for Best SaaS for Improved  Productivity, Best SaaS for Business Intelligence or Analytics, Best Data-Driven SaaS Product and Best SaaS Product for Product Analytics.

Now celebrating its eighth year, The SaaS Awards continues to recognise and honour outstanding SaaS innovations from all corners of the world. Entries from hundreds of companies spanning North America, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Australasia were received.

The programme boasts an array of categories for 2023, including ‘Bespoke SaaS Solution,’ ‘Best SaaS Product for Business Intelligence or Analytics,’ ‘Most Agile or Responsive SaaS Solution of the Year,’ and many others, showcasing SaaS solutions across industry verticals.

Kunal Kapur, managing director, Coats Digital, said: “It is fantastic news that we have made it to the final stage in four categories at this year’s highly acclaimed SaaS Awards programme. We are truly honoured to be named alongside so many leading global organisations at this final stage. We are immensely proud of GSDCost, which is the only solution out there that enables brands and manufacturers to establish and optimise International Standard Method and Time (SMV)* Benchmarks by harnessing the power of the cloud to create a more collaborative, transparent and sustainable supply chain. We are dedicated to innovation at all levels of our business and GSDCost is a testament to this, having recently launched two new modules: Seamworks Cloud, a thread demand calculation tool; and a Fair Wage benchmark tool. We believe the introduction of our new Fair Wage tool will play an instrumental role in delivering a fairer living wage to all people working in the global apparel manufacturing sector – an industry sector which has much to redress with regard to its sustainability and corporate social responsibility reputation in the years to come.” (*SMV = Standard Minute Value)

James Williams, head of operations at The SaaS Awards, said: “Each year, we see an explosion of competition and brilliant ideas in every submission. The finalists this year promise an exciting contest in the last stage of the program. Selecting the ultimate SaaS winner solutions among these exceptional entries will definitely be a challenging task.

The organizations announced today as finalists, including Coats Digital, are clear evidence of the exceptional quality and level of innovation achieved this year. Our panel of judges is thrilled to acknowledge these world-class SaaS innovators.”

The winners of The SaaS Awards will be notified on 13 September 2023.
