2017 was an extremely successful year for OrderWise with award successes for the company, product and staff at local, regional and national level. We were named as the Family Business of the Year, commended for our innovative software and our own Greg Downey, Implementation Team Leader, was singled out for being a Rising Star.
Now, 2018 has started with more exciting news on the business award front as we have been shortlisted as a finalist in two categories at this year’s prestigious FSB Business Awards! These awards, run by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), are organised into 12 regional finals with the regional winners in a variety of categories then going through to the national final stage to determine the best small businesses from the whole of the UK.
We are pleased to say that OrderWise have made it through to the regional finals in two categories, the first being the Business & Product Innovation Award, which aims to showcase business models and innovative products that deliver dramatic results. With OrderWise releasing a new version of our software every single month, totalling over 600 new modules, features and enhancements each year, we more than fit the bill for this one.
The second category is Employer of the Year, which aims to highlight and recognise those employers who strongly invest in attracting, developing and retaining employees. We proud to be shortlisted for this award as significant investment has been made in structured staff training, our stylish staff café, and recreational facilities such as a company gym and table tennis tables across our premises.
We’re very proud to have been shortlisted for these two awards and fingers crossed for the ceremony in February!
