@GolderAssociate Wins Build Better #qSharePoint Contest using #qWebParts

And the winner of the Build Better SharePoint Contest is … (drum roll, please …)


Kim Forchhammer from Golder Associates AB for his entry, An Interface for Environmental and Geotechnical Data Using Quest Web Parts. Kim’s entry wowed our expert judges and received several raving reviews.


Mike Watson, co-founder and principal at SeriousLabz, said about the Golder application, “It features an intensive data display, and is extremely visually appealing considering how much data is displayed. It’s a serious solution.”


Curtis Kelly, product manager for Quest Web Parts for SharePoint, simply stated, “The Golder Associates’ application built using Quest Web Parts is critical to running their core business.”


For displaying the best use of Quest Web Parts, Kim won a trip to the SharePoint Conference 2011 in Anaheim, CA, including general conference registration, roundtrip airfare and a reservation at one of the conference hotels (all valued at approximately $3,500.00 US). Congratulations, Kim!
