We can’t believe it either, but it’s only a few short weeks until we announce the best products of last year at the 2021 Product Awards. This year’s virtual event, sponsored by Heap, Bluedot, and Mighty Capital, has already brought in over 2000 nominations of incredible product management tools. Now, it’s time for you to vote on who you think won in each stage of the product lifecycle. Rounding out the full list, let’s check out the nominees for the Collaborate Stage.

The Nominations for the Collaborate Stage

As the most influential product acceleration platform for product managers out there on the market, the Collaborate Stage is one Products That Count is very familiar with. In fact, it’s the stage of the life cycle in which a product team enables effective communication across product stakeholders. Sounds like our kind of stage. Check out the full list of nominees and vote below, and make sure you’re registered to join us at the event to find out which products edge out the competition!
