Ormsby Street Wins Gold in Best in Biz Awards 2017 International
Most Innovative Product of the Year – SMB Most Innovative Product of the Year
London, UK – July 26, 2017 – Ormsby Street has been named the gold winner in SMB Most Innovative Product of the Year in Best in Biz Awards 2017 International, the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications from around the world.
Founded in January 2014, Ormsby Street is one of Europe’s most disruptive firms, providing tangible help to 40,000 small businesses across Europe. It uses multiple data sources – credit reference agencies, Ormsby Street’s community of small business users and a company’s own bookkeeping data – and powerful analytics to address late invoice payment and poor cash-flow. It does so by providing easy-to-understand insight into how businesses should trade with customers and what action to take to reduce risk of non-payment.
“It’s great for our efforts to be recognised by Best in Biz” says Robert Drury, Head of Product at Ormsby Street. “Late and non-payment is a huge issue for businesses across the world and we’re here to support small businesses get paid the money they are owed so they can do what they do best.”
Almost 300 public and private companies hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards’ fifth annual International program. Best in Biz Awards 2017 International honors were once again presented in a range of categories, including Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Support Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Enterprise Product and Consumer Product of the Year.
Winners in the 5th annual program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges hailing from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience, and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.
“I thought the caliber of entries in Best in Biz Awards 2017 International was even higher than in previous years – the entrants intrinsically were more impressive companies,” said Martina Devlin, Irish Independent.
This year’s judging panel included writers and contributors to such publications as ARD (Germany), Business Breakfast (United Arab Emirates), Computer Hoy (Spain), Data Breach Today (United Kingdom), HT Mobile (Israel), IAA Magazine (United Arab Emirates), InBusiness (Cyprus and Greece), Irish Independent (Ireland), Radio Ngati Porou (New Zealand), TechHim (India), TechnoFILE.com(Canada), Tune Media (Singapore), Ventures Africa (Nigeria), and Wirausaha & Keuangan (Indonesia).
