Company secretarial software company Inform Direct is celebrating after being named among the winners at the 2016 British Accountancy Awards.
Ipswich-based Inform Direct picked up the Practice Software Product of the Year trophy at the event, held at The Brewery in London and attended by more than 600 guests from practices basd across the country.
The company, which was only established four years ago, now has more than 45,000 companies registered on its company secretarial software platform, designed to removed the complexity of completing forms required by Companies House.
Henry Catchpole, founder and chief executive of Inform Direct, said: “Winning Practice Software Product of the Year at such prestigious awards is a huge honour and we are thrilled to see our software rated so highly by the accountancy profession – and winning the award against stiff competition.
“We were particularly delighted with the judges’ comments: ‘They have shown how technology can deliver solutions alongside growth. A fantastic entry and a package that practitioners need – but might not know that they need yet’,” he added.
The trophy adds to Inform Direct’s success at the Business Finance Awards, organised by Financial Director magazine, in March this year where it won the Software Product of the Year title.
This year has also seen Inform Director named as a member of the Future50 business growth programme for Suffolk and Norfolk’s most innovative companies, which is funded by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund and delivered by Nwes and Archant, with partners Barclays, Birketts, Lovewell Blake and the University of East Anglia.
