Pall-Ex is celebrating, having won the ‘Technology in Business’ category at the Growing Business Awards, organized annually by the CBI and Real Business magazine.
Sponsored by Dell UK, the award identifies and celebrates companies that have put technology at the heart of their business in the last year – and seen improved performance, including increased sales and profits, as a result. The judges were looking for companies that have been galvanized and transformed by the effective use of information and communications technology.
Throughout its ten year history Pall-Ex has used technology to give itself the edge in a highly competitive market. The company has designed, developed and implemented its own bespoke IT system – Pall-IT – and, in the last year, has been introducing advanced online track and trace facilities to provide the most up-to-date information to customers on the progress of their consignments.
The Awards were presented in front of 700 attendees at a black-tie gala dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane. The ceremony was compered by William Hague MP and guests included world class entrepreneurs such as Charles Dunstone, John Madejski, Sir Peter Rigby, Sir Anthony Bamford, Lord Graham Kirkham and the entire cast of BBC2’s Dragons’ Den. The judging panel included the Go! airline founder and London Olympics bid winner, Barbara Cassani, as well as Fru Hazlitt (Virgin Radio), Peter Linthwaite (British Venture Capital Association), David Storey (Warwick Business School), Gerard Burke (Cranfield School of Management) and Bob Jones (Equiinet).
Hilary herself was also a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year award.Read More
