Inspiring Business Awards 2017: the winners!

27th June 2017

Datel is very pleased to announce the winners of the four categories within Connect 2017’s Inspiring Business Awards, recognising the breadth of success within our customer community.

As the Connect 2017 conference and exhibition drew to a close on Thursday 22nd June, it was onto the next order of business: the Inspiring Business Awards.

The Awards were in-keeping with the ‘inspiring’ theme of Connect 2017, celebrating the inspirational success stories within our diverse customer base across the following categories:

  • Inspiring New Customer

  • Expanding the World of Sage

  • Embracing New Technology

  • Inspiring Established Customer.

A fantastic time was enjoyed by all at the packed Inspiring Business Awards Dinner. While all of the nominees had great inspirational stories, four winners needed to be selected. This was a difficult task and we are delighted to reveal which businesses were crowned as winners on the night:
