Digital Minister praises Fargo Systems for driving innovation in golden age of UK tech
Fargo Systems has been confirmed as the UK’s leading logistics software supplier as voted for by the sector, winning the prestigious Technology Company of the Year at the recent Multimodal Awards 2021 at the Vox, Birmingham.
Multimodal news readers, exhibitors and industry peers were asked to vote for the technology company they considered the best in the UK from a strong field comprising nine finalists, respectively.
Digital Minister Chris Philp said: “It’s great to see companies like Fargo Systems using technology to find smarter ways of working and driving digital innovation.
“We recently published our AI Strategy, which includes new plans to double the number of scholarships available in data science and AI and measures to help businesses commercialise their ideas and use more technology so we can all take advantage of this golden age in UK tech.”
Fargo Systems founding director Kevin Terrill said: “We are grateful to everyone who voted for us. Praise goes to our fantastic teams based in Ipswich and Exeter, who work so hard to ensure our customer service level is exceptional and consistent.
“We have long positioned ourselves as the UK’s leading software supplier to the multimodal industry, and to be recognised as Technology Company of the Year is a tremendous achievement for our company.”
Fellow founding director Hemant Patel added: “Our company strapline, ‘Together, further’ reinforces our commitment to working with our clients. Our key strength lies in our collaboration with our customers to deliver innovative transport management solutions that become part of a client’s DNA. We are appreciative of all those that voted for us.”
In summary, Steve Collins said: “The last eighteen months have been like no other for us and the whole sector. To be recognised by our industry peers as Technology Company of the Year and more widely as a digital innovator is an incredible acknowledgement for the whole of Fargo Systems.”
