Bloxx scoops Scottish business award

Bloxx : 19 October, 2009  (Company News)
Business success for internet filtering company brings recognition in the ScotlandIS annual awards
Bloxx, the international Internet security company, has just scooped a coveted award for Outstanding Performance in Business Growth at the ScotlandIS Annual Awards ceremony. Fiercely contested, this award was presented to Bloxx in recognition of the company's outstanding performance in business growth during the last year.

Polly Purvis, Executive Director of ScotlandIS said: 'This is the first year we have run this industry award, and we were delighted with the quality of the entrants. We are seeing more and more Scottish based technology companies going international, and the recognition of the skills and expertise needed to do this effectively bodes well for the future of our industry.'

Business results were a major focus in the award selection process. The judges gave Bloxx top marks in areas such as effective sales campaigns, sales channel strategy transformation, success in new territories/sectors, sustained year-on-year growth, exceptional sales performance and impactful channel marketing. Bloxx has also established an effective indirect sales channel in the UK whilst still growing its direct sales, established a direct sales operation in the USA and significantly grown business in Europe and Australia.

Bloxx's headquarters and research labs are in Livingston, Scotland and they have offices in USA, Holland and Australia.

Eamonn Doyle, CEO of Bloxx commented : 'Receiving this award is terrific. It rewards all the hard work the entire Bloxx team has put in to delivering a technology-leading product and implementing innovative marketing and sales processes and campaigns that have enabled us to grow our customer base both here in the UK and increasingly internationally.'

Eighteen innovative Scottish technology companies were nominated for the award and a shortlist of five was identified. The judges were looking for a clear understanding of the marketing challenges facing technology companies aiming to build international sales, well thought through plans, and effective delivery.

2nd and 3rd places were awarded to Inoapps the Aberdeen based Oil and Gas Industry software specialists, and FreeAgentCentral, a software-as-a-service specialist financial management software developers. Special commendations were also given to Rocela (Global Oracle specialists) and brightsolid (leading provider of Utility and Cloud Computing Services.)

Sponsors of the award, 2in10's Managing Director David Farquhar said. 'We sponsored the award to highlight the importance of formal marketing and sales expertise within technology companies - so often Scottish businesses are excellent at technology development but struggle to maximise the market for their products. The quality of applications for this award was excellent, but Bloxx was the clear winner.'
