And the award goes to…

The 2017 Control Design Readers’ Choice Awards is in its 17th year and we are honored to be placed in the top 5 for many of our product groups. The Readers’ Choice Award is especially gratifying since it is an unaided ballot, meaning no list of suppliers is provided to influence the votes cast. This is truly a ballot based on personal experiences. More than 18,000 individuals with buying authority or influence were polled and asked to provide their first, second and third choices for more than 65 product categories. The competition was tough but we managed to place in the top tier for nine categories and they are below.

PLC Programming Software / HMI Software

In this category for PLC and HMI software, AutomationDirect ranked 3rd overall. That is an extremely impressive placement and don’t forget that most of our PLC and HMI software is completely FREE!
