Introducing AwardsSoft – The Don’t Panic Awards Management Platform
Don’t Panic are ethical, transparent award organisers. As Awards organisers, we recognise the need for a streamline award management process that understands the needs of both the entrant and the judging process, which is why our platform combines the two, whilst allowing you to retain the same ethical, objective and fair principles and apply them to your own awards.
We believe all awards need to have validity so that employees, business partners and clients can trust the system and accolade. Judging should be an objective, fair process that can be applied to all entries to ensure consistency.
AwardsSoft is a powerful online platform that enables you to manage the entire entry and judging process online for your new or existing awards programme.
As users of the platform ourselves, we continue to develop features, as well as increase our offering from both an entry user and management perspective, meaning the platform will always be state-of-the-art.
