CORESense beat out a field of its peers in the retail solutions vendor community to win the award. An independent panel of VP- and C-level retail technology executives from Integrated Solutions For Retailers' editorial board judged the nominations in early May.

They sell their products through three Web stores: www.ultimatebackstore.com, www.officedesigns.com and www.homeofficesolutions.com, three retail stores and on eBay.

The judging panel studied the installation, examining the following criteria:

  • What was the primary business challenge?
  • How was the challenge addressed?
  • What specific providers contributed to the solution?
  • How did technology enable the solution?
  • What was the time frame for solution implementation?
