Every once in a while, we need to brag a bit about our accomplishments. Today we are happy to announce that ComponentSource has presented our Software Installation business with several achievements from their 2023 Awards for both leading publishers and individual products: 

  • Revenera – Top 25 Publisher 
  • InstallShield – Top 50 Product Award 
  • InstallShield Premier – Top 50 Product Award 
  • InstallAnywhere – Top 100 Product Award 

ComponentSource is one of the world’s largest global marketplaces and community for reusable software components for all platforms and development tools. The awards given to the Top 100 Bestselling Publishers and Top 100 Bestselling Products are based on the total sales dollar value of orders placed by customers during the 2022 year. The awards have been around for the last 17 years and—given they are based on real customer orders—we are honored to be named and associated with such a long-standing tradition.  

“As in previous years, these awards are based on orders we received from our global customers. They represent a true global market snapshot for commercial software components and development tools in 2022,” says Sam Patterson, ComponentSource CEO. “We believe our awards represent accurate real-world data on how our customers are using these components and development tools in their latest projects.”
