The API Fund for Payroll Education, Inc., d/b/a American Payroll Association (APA), and the Global Payroll Management Institute, Inc. (GPMI) have adopted the following rules and procedures for the awarding of the Showcase Standout Awards to participating companies in the Payroll Solutions Showcase. The awards recognize exceptional product demonstrations that showcase the foremost solutions to U.S. and global payroll problems. The awards program is fully administered by the APA and GPMI.

1-Awards Program Overview
The APA and GPMI are hosting an awards program to recognize the best product demonstrations by payroll industry service providers (vendors) in eight categories at the Payroll Solutions Showcase event to be held on July 13, 2021 (with demonstrations available on demand thereafter). The eight categories are:

1. Best Overall Demo
2. Cloud Solutions
3. Cutting Edge Technology
4. Emerging Software
5. Employee Experience
6. Human Resource Information System (HRIS)
7. Wage Access Options
8. Workforce Management

The Showcase Standout Award winners will be determined through a score received from online voting by attendees in each category. The award recipients will be announced on August 27, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

2-Award Eligibility Requirements
To be eligible for an award in a category, participating vendors must:
• Complete an application form and select one or more of the eight categories for which they wish to be considered for an award
• Complete a demonstration session live on July 13, 2021; APA and GPMI will make the demonstration session available on demand until December 31, 2021

3-Voting Deadlines and Procedure
Voting for the Showcase Standout Awards opens on the day of the free event, July 13, 2021, at 7:00 a.m. EDT, and closes on July 30, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. EDT. It is highly recommended that attendees view all demonstrations before voting in each category. The online voting will be conducted via Woobox on the Payroll Solutions Showcase platform. A minimum of three finalists for each category will be announced on August 6, 2021, and the finalists will be notified by APA and/or GPMI. The winners will be announced during a video session on August 27, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

4-Voting Eligibility (Vendors)

• Vote in each poll once for each category
• Be 18 years of age or older

6-Selection Process
Attendees of the Payroll Solutions Showcase will vote on the execution of demonstrations in each category for a “best of the best” determination. The three participating companies that receive the highest number of votes in each category will become the finalists in that category. Of the finalists, the participating company that receives the highest number of votes in a particular category will become the winner in that category.

• The demonstration shows the unique aspects of the product that separates it from competitors
• The demonstration time is adequate to show the required functions of the product and answer questions
• The answers from vendor representative(s) to attendees demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the product

7-The Awards Finalists and Winners
