We are pleased to be announced as the winner of Environmental Project of the Year at the BCS & Computing UK & IT Industry Awards.
We were presented with the award at a prestigious ceremony at the Battersea Park Events Arena in London. The Awards are a platform for the IT profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence.

We were rewarded for our work on a successful project to create an ecommerce platform for Devon County Council to manage car parking regulations and generate new revenue streams. The system reduced energy consumption, shrinking the council's carbon footprint and motivating positive change in employee attitudes.
We were also announced as a medallist in the Community Project of the Year category for its work developing a bespoke online application to streamline processes for charity SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association).
Being recognised by the IT industry and winning this award against such high calibre finalists is great testament to the hard work and dedication of our team in delivering the highest standards. We work hard to ensure our tailor-made solutions deliver measurable and substantial benefits to our clients, and this was a key area of the judging criteria for the award.
David Clarke, chief executive officer of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says, "This has been another exceptional year for the Awards, with winners drawn from a wide range of industries, once again highlighting that IT is truly embedded in our society and brings tremendous benefits to all aspects of life from industry, healthcare through to entertainment and security.
"As the Chartered Institute for IT, we offer our congratulations to all those who took part and in particular, the medallists and winners. To qualify as a finalist is terrific; to win is an absolutely fantastic achievement in these highly contested awards."
Robin Booth, publishing director of Computing comments, "On behalf of Computing, I would like to congratulate the winners and medallists on their achievements. The UK IT Industry Awards are rigorously judged and as a result truly celebrate innovation and best practice in IT today."
