Peterborough, United Kingdom, April 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Business software specialists, DMC Software Solutions (http://www.dmcsoftware.co.uk/), have been chosen as one of the four finalists for The Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award category of The National Business Awards Midlands and East of England Regional Programme 2008, sponsored by Orange.
The National Business Awards is the UK’s number one, cross-industry awards programme and is a very sought after accolade. Described by Gordon Brown as the ‘Business Oscars’, The National Business Awards attracts entries from a wide variety of successful organisations - from FTSE 250’s through to thriving entrepreneurial businesses.
DMC, Act software certified resellers and trainers, have fought off tough competition from other SMEs in the region to be short listed, and reaching this stage of the competition is a significant accomplishment.
DMC is a business success story, starting out as a two-man band just seven years ago and now one of Sage’s leading Business Partners – topping league tables and winning prestigious sales and customer service awards.
They have experienced rapid growth since their humble beginnings and in the last 18 months alone they have achieved a double-figure growth rate, increased their staff two-fold and moved to state of the art offices in Peterborough to accommodate their expansion.
At the same time, they have maintained their customer centric approach and focused their efforts on the service experience, so that they don’t lose sight of what’s important – providing excellent business software packages and training for their customers.
Mike Ramsay, Managing Director of DMC comments “I am delighted that we have been chosen as one of the four finalists for The National Business Awards 2008. I’m personally very proud of my team and what we’ve achieved and I am honored that the panel of top business specialists think the same.”
Being nominated as finalists is testament to the hard work and dedication all the employees put into making DMC what it is today – a first class business worthy of this award. Mike continues “every DMC employee strives to push the business forward - it’s incredible to see the energy and enthusiasm of the team.”
Everyone in the company is proud of this accolade, and Mike himself has taken a step back to realise what he has actually achieved in such a short space of time. He concludes “If you had told me seven years ago that I would be in the running to win The National Business Awards, I would have thought it impossible. But the fact is, anything is possible if you put your mind to it and have a great team to help you achieve your business vision.”
DMC will face the judges again in June in a final bid to secure the winning title, along with the other three finalists. The winner with subsequently be announced at The National Business Awards finals on 15th July 2008 at the National Motorbike Museum in Birmingham.
