About the Awards

Each year we honor a single individual and two organizations whose innovative applications of CBORD solutions enrich our entire user community through their service.

Award Categories


A group or organization receives the One CBORD award because together they represent our mission to provide a wide range of integrated solutions that help customers in every market served. These solutions increase efficiency and reduce costs while increasing customer satisfaction. Recipients must exemplify integrated planning and foresight of linking multiple CBORD systems together across an organization in order to deliver a comprehensive solution for their customers.


The CBORD Visionary award is given to a group of people or an organization. This award recognizes the creative uses of CBORD solutions and honors excellence in innovative applications of CBORD systems. This creativity and innovation may be demonstrated either through unique use of existing CBORD products or through the integration of CBORD software with other market solutions. Our Visionaries illustrate what it means to be leaders of system integration, and through the development of new business applications they create valuable services for their customers.

Above & Beyond

This award is given to an individual user who has been working with CBORD to develop new products or has creatively applied CBORD solutions for the benefit of the larger user community. This person is honored for their willingness to evaluate and provide feedback on new products and technology from within the community, working with CBORD and our partners to create new solutions and solve technical integration challenges, and/or has proven to be a valuable resource through the sharing of their specialized knowledge and experience.
