nominates three of Globell's products as

Software of the Year”

For the fifth time, the market leading download platform of German Telekom has chosen the most popular software products of the year. Globell’s products have been nominated in two different categories.

Globell B.V., an established Brand Management for the German-speaking market and Europe has been nominated in two out of 12 categories by the expert jury of Softwareload. Globell already made it to the first place in the category “Hobby & Leisure Time” with its CREATIVE WORKS ARCHITEKT PRO 6 last year.

As it was last year, WinZip, the world’s leading compression software has again been nominated in the “Systems” category. In addition, there is a special focus on the category “Photo & Graphics” this year. Two products have been nominated out of Globell’s portfolio: ACDSee Pro and Portrait Professional. Both have been highly recommended by the press many times before. 

ACDSee Pro & Portrait Professional in the category “Photo & Graphics”

ACDSee Pro, which has been tested and recommended by Stiftung Warentest at the beginning of the year, prompts Globell’s nomination in the category “Photo & Graphics”. This image editing and archiving software has gained more and more fans among both professional photographers and graphics enthusiasts in Germany so there is a realistic chance to snap up one of the top spots.
