Perforce Software Wins Develop Magazine’s Industry Excellence Award

Wokingham (UK), July 10, 2014 - Perforce Software today announced it was selected as the winner of this year’s Develop Industry Excellence Award in the Production Tools category. The company received the award at a ceremony on July 9 in Brighton, UK.

Develop Industry Excellence Awards is an annual program from Develop, a website and magazine focused on the game development sector. The Awards, which focus on creativity, teamwork and innovation, are the only peer-voted recognitions for UK and European games developers.

The majority of the winners across the 22 award categories are Perforce customers—including Studio of the Year, Rockstar North, developers behind the Grand Theft Auto™ series.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to win this Award from Develop,” said Mark Warren, European marketing director at Perforce. “Perforce has always been popular with gaming companies large and small, and it means a lot to us to have our customers confirm how much they enjoy our technology.”

Perforce is widely adopted by the gaming industry due to its speed, ease of use and ability to manage any type of file—including large binaries like the artwork used in games. The Perforce 20/20 Program allows start-ups and small companies to use Perforce free of charge for up to 20 users or 20 workspaces, including access to Perforce’s award-winning technical support.
