NEW YORK, NY (June 12, 2017) Noodle Markets, a market network streamlining buying for districts and schools, today announced that their platform was named a 2017 SIIA CODiE Awards finalist in the Emerging Technology category. Finalists represent the best products, technologies, and services in software, information and business technology.
Noodle Markets helps educators save time and money on purchasing through a digital platform combining communication tools, solicitation management, and a national marketplace of over 33,000 K12 products and services. By utilizing Noodle Markets’ tools, schools are able to increase competition by having vendors bid on products and services, speed up procurement, ensure compliance, and surface analytics to improve purchasing.
This month, Noodle Markets released a suite of enhancements, including an updated Purchasing Dashboard, search result filtering by product/vendor, and “Quick Quote” messaging for simple, centralized correspondence between educators and vendors.
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. Noodle Markets was honored as one of 205 finalists across the 59 business technology categories.
“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity of the products that have been selected as this year’s CODiE Award finalists. We are happy to recognize these products and the power they have to transform the future of how we do business.” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA.
“If we empower K-12 stakeholders with tools and information that solve their biggest purchasing pains, we will see the makings of a transformation in education. Noodle Markets brings transparency to a sector that is unquestionably lagging behind other industries. Providing information about what’s in the market, how products are performing, relevant rules and regulations, and opportunities for economies of scale are paramount to eliminating waste, maximizing spending, and increasing student achievement.” said Nicole Neal, CEO, product visionary and co-founder of Noodle Markets.
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognized awards program. Business technology leaders including senior executives, analysts, media, consultants and investors evaluate assigned products during the first-round review which determines the finalists.
