At Cobalt, we are excited to have been selected as finalists at the National Comms Awards in London in October. After winning the prestigious ‘Innovation Award’ last year we didn’t dare to dream that we could be selected as finalists again this year so you can imagine our surprise to be told yesterday that we have been selected as finalists for three Awards this year.
While this gives us a warm feeling you would be excused for wondering what difference this makes to our customers. As a South-West based business, we often feel that we are overlooked in favour of the larger comms companies in the South-East and other metropolitan areas in the UK. We are proud to fly the flag for Devon and prove that you don’t have to be in London to run a technical, market-leading business. Being selected as a finalist in three different categories demonstrates that we are not just great at one thing but that we continue to hold ourselves to a higher standard than most of our competitors.
Following our push to make the business Carbon Neutral earlier in the year we are pleased to have this recognised in both the Sustainability Award and the Business Transformation Award. Our expertise in the solutions that we deliver for our customers has also been recognised in the selection as a finalist in the Best Contact Centre Solution.
Speaking about the nomination, Director Jim Taylor said “We are so proud of the hard work that the whole team have put in to secure these three nominations. It is a true testament to not only our expertise in delivering top-quality solutions to our customers but also demonstrates our firm commitment to making our world a better place for our children by becoming one of only a handful of Technology businesses in the UK that can prove that they no longer have a negative effect on our environment. This is a huge achievement for us and we are really grateful for the recognition.”
The team are looking forward to the Award ceremony in October and the inevitable hangover the morning after. Wish us luck!
