Xojo Wins 2016 BIG Innovation Award

AUSTIN, TEXAS — February 3, 2016 — Xojo today announced it has been named a leader and winner in the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. Xojo is a rapid application development tool (RAD) for developing apps for the desktop (OS X, Windows and Linux), web, iOS and Raspberry Pi (Desktop, Web and Console apps).

Xojo is the best environment for professional developers, citizen developers and hobbyists alike who want to develop for the desktop, web, mobile, and Raspberry Pi. Xojo applications compile to machine code for greater performance and security. Xojo uses native controls so apps look and feel right on each platform. Since one set of source code can be used to support multiple platforms, development is ten times faster. Simply drag and drop to create the user interface, utilizing one straight-forward programming language to implement the app’s functionality.

“We are honored to receive this award for innovation,” commented Geoff Perlman, Xojo Founder and CEO. “Technology is constantly marching forward. As a development tools company, we must move forward with it and innovate constantly to provide our value: making it fast and easy to build applications for many different platforms. The Raspberry Pi is just the latest example of the many platforms we support.”

“It was clear from our judges that Xojo was clearly deserving of being recognized as a leader in innovation and we are proud to award them the 2016 BIG Innovation Award,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “Congratulations to the entire team. This is well-deserved recognition of your pursuit of excellence and creativity in solving problems.”
