Kintone has been named a silver winner in Small or Medium Business Product of the Year by Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.
Kintone is a teamwork platform that empowers teams and organizations to effectively manage their data, communication, and workflows for better collaboration. Kintone enables businesses to consolidate many of their software solutions onto one cost-effective and customizable platform instead of multiple off-the-shelf SaaS subscriptions. The platform’s drag-and-drop interface lets anyone rapidly build and deploy sophisticated custom database applications within a powerful collaboration environment that offers automated workflow and granular permission controls—no coding necessary.
2020 marked the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards and—with a continuing global pandemic—was a year like no other in the program’s 10-year history. Despite the global challenges, the 10th annual program saw a particularly strong field of entries from public and private companies of all sizes and spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada, ranging from some of the most recognizable and admired global brands to the most innovative startups and nimble local companies – proving North American business’ resilience and continuing innovation and growth, despite the odds.

The judges were impressed with this year’s winners’ agility and adaptability that allowed their businesses to thrive, their willingness to always go the extra mile to help their customers in these unusual times and, particularly, many winners’ efforts to maintain their commitment to the environment and to prioritize helping others in their communities.
“2020 has reinforced our core belief that human connection and collaboration are the driving forces for creativity and productivity,” said Dave Landa, CEO of Kintone. “This year, we’ve been particularly inspired by the resilience and innovation of our small and medium-sized business customers, many of whom have depended on Kintone during the challenges posed by remote work and work from home. We thank the Best in Biz judges for this award.”
“In this wild year, it’s amazing to see companies still innovating, adapting, and thriving,” said Christopher Null, Wired, who has judged seven of the last ten Best in Biz Awards programs. “There’s so much in the business world that is inspirational right now.”
