This month saw OrderWise attend the annual Lincolnshire Media Business Awards, an evening which aims to recognise and celebrate the best businesses in the region.
Forming part of Lincolnshire Business week, the awards ceremony was held at Lincolnshire Showground and, having been nominated for two of the prestigious awards, ten OrderWise employees (including Managing Director David Hallam) donned their best attire to represent the company at the evening’s celebrations. Joining them was numerous companies from across Lincolnshire, who all arrived in the hope of winning one of the coveted titles on offer.
For the awards, OrderWise had been shortlisted in two categories – Innovation and Large Business of the Year. The first of these, the Innovation award, aims to recognise businesses that have found and developed new solutions to aid business growth or competitiveness. With our own Store EPOS solution added in late 2017, as well as ongoing research and testing into Warehouse Robotics following a £2 Million+ investment, we’re extremely proud to say that OrderWise was able to take home the prize on the night.
The second award category in which OrderWise was nominated, Large Business of the Year, aims to recognise the progress in business growth and development made by a company over the last year. Although OrderWise didn’t win this time around, it was great to still be recognised for our accomplishments and growth over the last 12 months amongst some other great Lincolnshire businesses.
However, the celebrations didn’t stop there. All the award winners on the night also had the chance to win the most coveted award of the evening – Overall Business of the Year. This award was for businesses who not only increased profitability and potential, but also had a positive impact on the economy of the region. To our surprise, joy and amazement, the company’s name was called and OrderWise was named as the Lincolnshire Media’s Business of the Year for the first time! This follows on from the company winning the same title at the Lincolnshire Technology & Innovation Awards back in June, further solidifying the success the business has achieved in 2018.
We are immensely proud of these outstanding accolades and they have since been added to our ever-growing trophy cabinet. We’d just like to say well done to every member of the OrderWise team who made this recognition possible, and also offer big congratulations to all the deserving winners on the night who are helping to put Lincolnshire business on the map!
