Award Force
When we run a series of award program with different set of judges in rounds, we have had the best use of AF. It is highly competent in processing the applications specially as our number of applicants are over 2000. Therefore, we have been able to streamline the entire award process and reduce the margin of error and very transparent and efficient judging criterias implemented.
