Advanced Computer Software Group has been shortlisted for Tech Company of the Year in the prestigious UK Tech Awards 2014. The company is one of four to be selected as a finalist in this category and the awards ceremony will take place on 12 November 2014 at the Park Plaza in London.
Advanced was nominated for the award and chosen for the shortlist alongside CSR plc, EMIS Group plc and Micro Focus International plc, by a panel of 17 judges. The Tech Company of the Year Award recognises organisations that have attained commercial and financial success through their technological achievements.
As well as already being recognised by analysts and investors, these companies are also deemed to have long-term growth potential and sound strategy to successfully deliver commercial advantages and build shareholder value.
Advanced has grown its market capitalisation to approximately £550m in six years. The business, which employs 2,000 members of staff, is now the third largest UK-based software and IT services provider to the UK market.
Vin Murria, CEO of Advanced, was a winner at the 2013 UK Tech Awards when she was named UK Tech Personality of the Year for demonstrating vision, drive, energy and unswerving commitment to making the company successful.
Vin said: “I am delighted that we have been shortlisted for this award, which not only recognises all that we have achieved so far, but also our strong potential for continued sustainable growth.
“Our strategy of organic growth and complementary acquisitions, as well as the commitment and motivation of the Advanced team, has driven – and will continue to drive – our success.”
Advanced provides software and services to both public and private sectors which enable organisations to improve efficiency, reduce costs and drive growth.
